The Slide at The ArcelorMittal Orbit for Two Adults
Enjoy a thrilling 40-second ride sliding down the corkscrew streel structure of the ArcelorMittal Orbit, also known as the world’s tallest and longest tunnel slide.
The ArcelorMittal Orbit is Britain’s largest sculpture and is a prominent feature of the East London skyline. Created by Anish Kapoor and Cecil Balmond, the sculpture was originally part of the Olympic legacy which transformed East London alongside the Olympic games in 2012. The obscure sculpture has become a landmark in its own right, attracting and delighting visitors in droves with its unique panoramic views over the city of London.
Made up with 35,000 bolts and enough steel to build 265 double-decker buses, this looping structure offers extraordinary 20-mile views over the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and East London.
You and a friend will climb the 455 stairs to the summit of the structure, where you’ll both be greeted by a platform of concave mirrors and innovative touchscreens in addition to the breathtaking views spread around you. Then it’s time to fuel your adventurous side and feel the adrenaline as you rapidly descending to the bottom via the longest and tallest tunnel slide in the world.
As visitors descend the 178 meter long slide, they will pass through light and dark sections with London’s dramatic skyscape whizzing past in a blur. The descent from the top of the structure lasts 40-seconds and you will circle around the ArcelorMittal Orbit 12 times in total, ending with a 50 meter straight run to ground level.
