Take a Ride Down the OUE Skyspace LA Skyslide

Have you ever thought about riding down a glass slide 1,000 feet above ground on the outside of a skyscraper? Probably not! That’s exactly what you can do at the new OUE Skyspace LA in downtown Los Angeles. The moment I heard about OUE Skyspace LA it shot up to the top of my LA to do list.

I think the overall experiences at OUE Skyspace LA – exploring its digital interactive level, enjoying the views from the observation decks and the glass slide – are worth it as a combo. The highlight for me was definitely the stunning views of LA from the observation decks. The actual Skyslide itself was somewhat disappointing. As an adrenaline junkie it lacked the thrill-seeking qualities I was hoping for. It’s extremely short, lasts a maximum of 5 seconds and not that big of a rush (for me). Is it still a cool thing to do? For sure. I would highly recommend it for someone who is afraid of heights and looking to conquer their fear in an adventurous yet safe way.
