Take a look at photos of the slide

Come 2016, London is set to be home to the world’s tallest and longest tunnel slide.

The ArcelorMittal Orbit Tower at London’s Olympic Park is going to be fit with a slide that starts 80m above ground. It will take five circles before a person riding the slide reaches the bottom.

The tower, built by Turner Prize winner Anish Kapoor to celebrate the 2012 Olympic Games, is 114m tall and is made of up 2,000 tonnes of steel.


Peter Tudor, director of visitor services, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, said: “What more exciting way to descend the ArcelorMittal Orbit than on the world’s longest and tallest tunnel slide? We are committed to ensuring our visitors have the best possible day out every time they visit Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, and as with all our venues, we are constantly exploring ways to ensure we lead the way with the latest visitor experience. This slide really will give a different perspective of Britain’s tallest sculpture.”
