Ride the Slide at the Orbit & Westfield

Ride the Slide at the Orbit & Westfield

Departing Suffolk & Essex - A hair-raising London experience!

What to Expect

You will descend the world’s longest tunnel slide, at 178m long, as you travel down the UK’s tallest public artwork, you’ll pass through light and dark sections with London’s dramatic skyscape whizzing by!

In the 40-second trip, you will circle around the ArcelorMittal Orbit 12 times as you weave your way through the famous loops and curves of the iconic structure, including a tight corkscrew section names the ‘bettfeder’ – after the German word for ‘bedspring’ – and end with a 50m straight run back down to earth!

 

About the design

The Slide was created by German artist Carsten Höller at the invitation of Sir Anish Kapoor, designer of the ArcelorMittal Orbit. It is a unique collaboration between two of the world’s leading artists and a major art installation for London, as well as yet another reason to visit Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park – fast becoming London’s most exciting playground!
