 The Slide at the ArcelorMittal Orbit!
Visitors will descend the world's highest and, at 178m, the world's longest tunnel slide, as they travel down the UK's tallest public artwork, they'll pass through light and dark sections with London's dramatic skyscape whizzing by! In the 40-second trip, visitors will circle around the ArcelorMittal Orbit 12 times as they weave their way through the famous loops and curves of the iconic structure, including a tight corkscrew section names the 'bettfeder' - after the German word for 'bedspring' - and end with a 50m straight run back down to earth! The Slide was created by Belgian artist Carsten Höller at the invitation of Sir Anish Kapoor, designer of the ArcelorMittal Orbit. It is a unique collaboration between two of the world's leading artists and a major new art installation for London, as well as yet another reason to visit Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park - fast becoming London's most exciting playground!
