Fall in style and descend the world’s tallest and, at 178m, the world’s longest tunnel slide with admission to The Slide at the ArcelorMittal Orbit for Two. Spiral down what is also the UK’s tallest public artwork, shoot through light and dark breathing in dramatic cityscape views as you go.
During your 40 second trip, you’ll cruise at speeds of up to 15 miles per hour, weaving your way through the ArcelorMittal Orbit’s iconic loops and curves. Build up some momentum in the corkscrewing ‘bettfeder’ or ‘bedspring,’ before finishing up your run with a 50m hurtle straight back down to earth.
The Slide is the brainchild of Belgian artist Carsten Holler at the invitation of Sir Anish Kapoor, designer of the Orbit, so this is a showcase of innovation from two of the world’s leading artists. Completely unique, this latest installation is yet another reason to visit Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. The most exciting playground in London.

A really good fun activity.
Great attraction. Really enjoyed our visit to the slide. It was fast, exhilarating and fun. We were a group of 8 with ages ranging from 16 to 50 and we all enjoyed it. I'd highly recommend visiting and having a go. Afterwards we went up to the visitors viewing platform to enjoy the views and take lots of photos!
the slide is great fun and well recommended for a laugh and a picnic in the beautiful park before or after.
fantastic time had by all would definitely recommend and would do again , great views from the viewing platform 😉
