This Glass Slide on an L.A. Skyscraper Is Terrifying

Popularity 8Viewed 31575 times 2016-7-7 14:27 |Personal category:Travel|System category:News

Heights. I hate them. Get me up on anything higher than a playground slide and I’m not comfortable. So there’s no way in hell I would be sliding down The Skyslide, which is a see-through glass slide fixed onto outside of the tallest building west of the Mississippi River. There is just no way.

But if you are braver than me, the ride has just opened for business. You can pay $25(USD) to slide down 45 feet of bulletproof glass nearly 1,000 feet in the air. I have to hand it to them, this is a great revenue stream. Tourists and thrill-seekers will all flock to slide down the world’s short[imgid=0]est thrill ride, but I won’t be one of them.

Anyone afraid of heights can try EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) which works really well for some people. It is free to learn and takes only a few minutes to do. I cured our daughter when she was afraid to look out our 12 storey apartment picture window.
