you haven’t already heard, the ArcelorMittal Orbit is being turned into a slide. Designed by Carsten Höller and Anish Kapoor, the slide is due to open in June. But this isn’t just any slide, measuring 178m it will be the WORLD’S tallest and longest tunnel slide, twisting 12 times with a corkscrew and a 50m straight drop at the end. Taking you from top to bottom in 40 seconds, thrill seekers are expected to hit speeds of 15mph. With tickets costing only £5 on top of the usual admission fee, it’s a slippery slope from here…
