If you’ve got fear of heights, it would probably be for your own good to stay away from this place.

This slide, located in Los Angeles, California in the United States is obviously not for the faint of heart. Besides, this one is fixed 1,000 feet above the ground and it’s found just outside of a skyscraper.

Yes, you read that right – outside a skyscraper.

What makes the Skyslide much scarier is the fact that the slide is actually made out of a 1-inch-thick glass. That means you’ll see everything below you as you move quickly from top to bottom. Of course, you should take comfort in the fact that the glass is pretty sturdy since it’s been designed to withstand hurricane-force winds and even earthquakes.

Located at the US Bank Tower, the Skyscraper Slide is a 1,000-foot above the ground attraction in Los Angeles.

Still, sliding down a 45-foot downward slope from the US Bank Tower’s 70th floor to the 69th sounds like a terrifying idea. It’s still something I would hesitate to try even if you’d pay me for it.

Speaking of which, tickets are priced at $25 each.

In the clip below, you will see Associated Press reporter Amanda Lee Myers, along with a few others, give the Skyscraper Slide a try.

Judging by the YouTube comments though, it looks like netizens are unimpressed with the attraction.

“I expected this to be way longer! It’s just a short ride and only lasts a few seconds, I wouldn’t pay that much for it!”

Tim Suetens added:

“1,000 foot? That slide was MAYBE 50 foot long… And takes three seconds. What a ripoff.”

Meanwhile, rumba7 commented:

“Now if the slide went down the whole 1000 feet, then you would have something!”

I just admire how brave these people are. I really wouldn’t want to come anywhere close to that thing!
