This is the first summer in my entire life that I’ve actually decided to come up with some sort of bucket list. Therefore, as the month of August commences you will begin to see new experiences on the blog. Starting with the OUE Skyspace skyslide, seventy floors up above Downtown Los Angeles, nearly 1,000 feet in the air. Oh, and did I mention the slide structure is made out of glass?
Well that one, I rode it.
Check out the video below.

From the moment I heard this was going to be a thing in LA, I knew I had to do it. And I did. Here are 5 THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW
- The observation deck is officially my new favorite spot in LA for a full view of the city.
- Being 1,000 feet above the ground is not scary. But then again, I am not afraid of heights. And I live for views.
- The skyslide experience is very fast. A few seconds of jollying through a glass slide doesn’t take long. Now that I’ve gone on it, I think it should be wayyyy longer. Perhaps a few more seconds?
- Once you get to the bottom, it feels faster; like you might not land on the cushion. YOU WILL.
- Parking at the U.S Bank Tower is relatively expensive. We were there for many an hour and twenty minutes and our price for parking came out to be $35. Luckily, I didn’t have to pay that since I attended their press day and was validated.
- There is a gift shop.
- Your photo will be taken before the slide.
- There is an area with interactive technology, that lends an awesome video of LA’s skyline at night.
- The prices for admission are a little high. ( Consider that it’s a new attraction, though)
- They don’t allow you to take a video as you go down the slide, unless you are a member of the media. But you can take a photo.
- You take two elevator rides, one that takes you to the 54th floor and one that takes you to the 70th floor.
- You will need to go through security and have your bags checked.
- You can get married here. Or host an event.(According to the brochure.)
- Ages 3 and up can ride the slide.
- Prices range between $19 and $89, depending on age and package.
