    Default New glass slide added to outside of US Bank Tower in LA

    I wonder what this added to their of liability insurance premiums:

    LA Building Gets Exterior Slide 1k Feet Above Ground
    According to Curbed LA, The US Bank Tower in downtown Los Angeles is getting an exterior 36-foot glass slide. The Skyslide goes from the 70th to the 69th floor which puts you about 1,000 feet above street level. Wow. That is high. Admission to the slide is the observation deck fee of $25, plus an extra $8 for the actual slide itself. Call me cheap, but that figure is just a little out of my slide budget. By like $33, if you catch my drift.

    One of the things that seems weird to me is that the slide isn't very steep. So, I'm guessing the have something for you to slide on that will reduce friction - like a sled with wheels. But then, I look at the bottom of the slide and think, "what is actually slowing you down once you get to the bottom so that you don't go flying through the glass panels on the lower deck?"

    What is the point of this death trap? There are plenty of slides at the damn park.

    I'd do it. Mo raises good points, though.
    And to make it more worthwhile, I'd like it to be more stories long than just one! Hardly seems worth the engineering for such a short slide.
