Los Angeles' Tallest Tower to Get Terrifying "Skyslide"

The West Coast's tallest building, Los Angeles' US Bank Tower is going to be outfitted with a terrifying glass slide designed by engineering firm M.Ludvik & Co. Set to hang 1000-feet above the street, the project will be part of the building's Gensler-designed OUE Skyspace LA attraction - soon to be California's tallest open-air observation deck.

Those willing to brave the Skyslide will slide down a 45-foot-long chute made of four-inch-thick clear glass from the building's 70th floor to its 69th floor observation deck.
