    What to Expect
    On the day of your exhilarating experience, make your own way to The Slide, located approximately 15 minutes walk from Stratford underground station. As you approach the ArcelorMittal Orbit sculpture, designed by revered architect Sir Arnish Kapoor, gaze at the frenetic tangle of red cables.

    Opt either to take the stairs or a high-speed elevator to the first of two viewing platforms, from which you’ll enjoy panoramic views of London’s iconic skyline. Use interactive screens to locate landmarks including The Shard, St. Paul’s Cathedral, and Canary Wharf, and gain an alternative perspective of London by looking through two shape-shifting mirrors.

    Then, once you’ve summoned your courage, don a protective helmet, receive a short safety briefing, and prepare to plummet down the world’s tallest, longest, and fastest slide. 

    Travel through light and dark sections at speeds of up to 15 mph, wind around the sculpture 12 times in a tight corkscrew, and experience gentle curves and thrilling drops.

    At the bottom, enjoy Stratford’s innovative Olympic Park at your leisure.
