LA Gets A Glass Slide On The 70th Floor Of A Skyscraper

Remember sliding down the slide at the playground when you were a child, and the exhilaration you'd feel with the odd sensation of letting gravity carry you?

Time for a major adult upgrade, where this time, the city of Los Angeles is your playground.

The West Coast's tallest building, which scales a solid 72 stories overlooking Los Angeles, is about to get a major architectural upgrade—one that we sure hope doesn't crack.

A 45-foot-long glass slide is being built on top of Los Angeles' U.S. Bank Tower. The slide will go from the 70th to the 69th floors and is estimated to sit a mere 1,000 feet above ground.

The project, called Skyslide, is part of a $50M renovation to the building that's set to also include a bar and observation deck located on the top stories of the building.

Visitors will be able to ride the slide for $8, starting June 2016.

The see-through glass bays known as The Ledge were designed with a protective coating that completely covers all glass surfaces to protect against scratches. One of the coatings cracked Wednesday night when a family was standing on it. Officials say the family wasn't in danger and the coating does not affect the structural integrity of the enclosure.
