This glass slide above LA is either terrifying or amazing


Don't look down.

This is SkySlide, a glass slide 1,000 feet above Los Angeles.

Literally speaking, it's a way to get from the 70th floor of the U.S. Bank building to the 69th that cost $3.5 million.

Practically speaking, it's a mini- thrill ride. All that stands between you and a horrifying descent is a sturdy glass wall (strong enough to hold a school bus in midair) and a rubber mat.

The Los Angeles Times says the slide is part of a $50 million renovation of the U.S. Bank building. When it was bought in 2013 by Singapore-based OUE Ltd., CEO Lucy Ramantir wanted something no other skyscraper had.

If you want to ride, it's $25 for adults and $19 for kids just to get into the surrounding SkySpace, and then $8 per slide.

Would you ride this?
