on

A new slide in London takes amusement park rides to new heights.

Wrapped around the ArcelorMittal Orbit sculpture and observation tower, “The Slide” is 580 feet long, which makes it the world’s tallest, longest, fastest tunnel slide, according to the Times London.

The daredevil ride opened June 24 at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford.

The ArcelorMittal Orbit, which hosts the mega-slide, is an enormous sculpture by British artist Anish Kapoor. Here he is with a miniature model of it back in 2010.
