#CarstenHöller opened world’s longest tunnel slide at #AnishKapoor 's #ArcelormittalOrbit #London Open from June 24, 2016 Visitors can ready themselves for the 40-second trip down the arcelormittal, orbiting the structure 12 times and observing panoramic views of london’s dramatic cityscape. as they pass through light and dark sections of the tube, participants funnel through a tight corkscrew section named the ‘bettfeder’ (after the german word for ‘bedspring’), which ends with a 15 storey straight run back down to earth.
This art installation ArcelorMittal Orbit was created for the 2012 Olympics and now they’ve added “The Slide”.
Now holding the title of the world’s tallest and longest slide, it takes about 40 seconds from top to bottom. (The first to take the ride was the British pound.) You loop around the structure 12 times going as fast as 15mph.
And if you’re wondering:
I’m claustrophobic. Can I go on the slide?
As The Slide is fully enclosed we’d recommend that this experience isn’t ideal for those with claustrophobia. We’d suggest you come to look at The Slide before making a decision to buy a ticket.
