OMG this is Ironic: 70 stories up on a BANK building and get on a glass slide!


Yes Los Angeles
– you can go 70 stories up on a BANK building and get on a glass slide!

The only thing missing is razor blades in my opinion…

The Sky Slide, a new attraction in downtown Los Angeles, was lifted over the city Saturday morning as it was being set up on the 69th and 70th floors of the U.S. Bank tower.

A massive helicopter dangled the clear glass slide over the streets below before it was placed near the top of the tower. The massive project hit a bit of turbulence during its 1,000-foot-high journey. It broke an awning on the building next door and a window was broken on one of the upper flowers of the tower.

John Colosimo’s company built the slide and said all in all, the lift was still a success. He said safety has been the No. 1 priority in the project, which has gone through a rigorous testing process.

“Before we brought that thing out here, we loaded it with 10,000 pounds of sand and hung it for an hour. It’s pretty robust. I don’t see it coming apart,” he said.

When it’s complete, the Sky Slide will take thrill-seekers from the 70th floor to the 69th. It’s part of what will be California’s tallest open-air observation deck called the OUE Sky Space.

Tickets officially went on sale Saturday at, and the attraction is set to open in June.

    It broke and awning on a building next door and a window on the building it is mounted on? Is it now disaster proofed? I wouldn’t get on that thing for the opportunity to throw a pie in the face of Donald Trump!
