The U.S. Bank Tower in downtown Los Angeles, which bills itself as “the tallest skyscraper in the West,” has announced that a glass-enclosed slide will open to the public in June.

The 45-foot-long “Skyslide” will start on the 70th floor of the 72-story building and end on the 69th floor, making it 1,000 feet above the city’s sidewalks.

The attraction is part of a renovation that will also feature a bar and California’s tallest open-air observation deck, “Skyspace LA.”
