Los Angeles is already the home to a host of attractions and exciting adventures, and this terrifying new glass slide will undoubtedly be a welcome addition to the city’s landscape, particularly with thrill seekers. Sitting 1,000 feet up on the outside of the US Bank Tower (the tallest building in California) is the Skyslide, a new attraction which takes visitors on a thrilling ride from the 70th to the 69th floor of the building with nothing but one-inch-thick glass preventing you from free-falling to your death.

Visitors can now visit the slide as part of the new Skyspace area, a new rooftop observatory that offers stunning 360-degree views of the city from a high vantage point.
