Longest slide Arcelormittal in London.

ArcelorMittal Orbit

London, United Kingdom

Think art’s not exciting? The monumental ArcelorMittal Orbit sculpture, at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, in London, will change that. The 376-foot-tall sculpture was created by artist Anish Kapoor and engineer Cecil Balmond. It’s wrapped in a serpentine, 584-foot tunnel slide designed by artist Carsten Höller. It’s the longest and tallest tunnel slide in the world. Riders strap on a helmet and hurtle through 12 hairpin turns. The ride ends with a corkscrew portion named after the German word for bedspring. Along the way, riders catch glimpses of the London skyline through the slide’s transparent sections. If this 40 seconds of hair-raising fun doesn’t get your adrenaline going, nothing will. —Brian S.
