Skyspace LA

I Slid Down a Skyscraper and It Was Awesome

If hurling yourself off a skyscraper on a glass slide seems like a cool way to get to know Los Angeles, then you adrenaline junkies are gonna love this. Get to know Los Angeles in a whole new way at OUE Skyspace LA!

Located in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles lies the US Bank Tower, the tallest LA skyscaper reaching a staggering 1,018 feet. LA’s skyscraper scene is one of the most beautiful skylines in the world. And while most of us can only see the heights of these buildings from inside a flying airplane, the US Bank Tower gave me a new way to gaze over Downtown.

Interactive Experiences

Before reaching the experience up above, Skyspace LA introduces you to a series of interactive technological experiences that are both beautiful and kinda fun! I had no idea there were interactive light shows, visual experiences and funky art before taking in the view. Thus, I had a blast monkeying around for an hour.


The Observation Deck

Unless you own a penthouse or frequent helicopter pads often, you won’t find a better view of Downtown Los Angeles.

OUE Skyspace LA is California’s tallest open-air observation deck! Visitors will experience the California sunshine like never before, perched nearly 1,000 feet above downtown LA. Boasting an unmatched 2,800 square feet of outdoor space, there’s simply no better way to honor Los Angeles.

Did you think LA was a concrete jungle? A vast wasteland? Well, it kinda sorta is. Aside from the skyscrapers found in DTLA, you’ll see a sea of cement, concrete and brown haze East of the tower. Wrap around

The Skyslide

The Skyslide at Skyspace LA is unlike anything you’ve ever seen! It’s an outdoor glass slide, hoisted 1,000 feet above downtown Los Angeles. The Skyslide is forty-five feet long, about 4 feet wide and made entirely with 1-1/4 inches thick glass.

To be fair, I’m not really afraid of heights. I fly in planes, I’ve skydived and I have a love affair with scary rollercoasters. So I kinda wish the slide was longer, steeper and just more intense to get my adrenaline going.

But this is probably one of the most unique ways to see downtown. I mean, seriously. What’s more intimate than hurling yourself off a skyscraper into Los Angeles’ skyline?
