There's a place with a slide thats not just for kids. Fall in style and descend the worlds tallest and, at 178m, the worlds longest tunnel slide with admission for one adult and one child to the Skyline Views and The Slide at the ArcelorMittal Orbit. Spiral down what is also the UKs tallest public artwork, shoot through light and dark breathing in dramatic cityscape views as you go. During your 40 second trip, youll cruise at speeds of up to 15 miles per hour, weaving your way through the ArcelorMittal Orbits iconic loops and curves. Build up some momentum in the corkscrewing bettfeder or bedspring, before finishing up your run with a 50m hurtle straight back down to earth. The Slide is the brainchild of Belgian artist Carsten Holler at the invitation of Sir Anish Kapoor, designer of the Orbit, so this is a showcase of innovation from two of the worlds leading artists. Completely unique, this latest installation is yet another reason to visit Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. The most exciting playground in London.
