Over the last few years, we have welcomed thousands of excited visitors to the ArcelorMittal Orbit and The Slide - so much so that The Slide was almost completely sold out throughout all of the school holidays! So make sure you book ahead this year to avoid any disappointment.
London’s most exciting attraction, The Slide at the ArcelorMittal Orbit opened in June 2016 and visitors have been snapping up tickets to experience the truly hair-raising experience! Measuring 178m, The Slide is the world’s tallest and longest tunnel slide.
You will travel down the UK’s tallest public artwork through light and dark sections as London’s dramatic skyscape passes by. The Slide twists and turns 12 times, including a tight corkscrew section named the ‘bettfeder’ – after the German word for ‘bedspring.’ The Slide ends with a 50 metre straight run to the ground. In the exhilarating 40-second trip, riders are expected to hit speeds of up to 15 miles per hour!
And that’s not all! Stand on top of the world at the ArcelorMittal Orbit and take in London’s stunning skyline- spot famous landmarks and use the interactive screens to find out more about them. Turn the world upside down with Anish Kapoor’s spectacular mirrors and peek into the majestic London Stadium – the place where medals were won and lost in 2012. All included in your ticket price!
And for the real adrenaline junkies amongst you – experience the exhilarating descent of the UK’s highest freefall abseil from the ArcelorMittal Orbit with Wire and Sky.
