Skyslide, which sits nearly 1,000-feet above Downtown Los Angeles, on the 73-floor of the U.S. Bank Tower, opened to the public on Saturday.

“Tickets to the observation deck cost $25 per person. It is another $8 for anyone wanting to go on the slide.

The slide and observation deck are part of a $50million makeover for the U.S. Bank Tower,” according to The Daily Mail.
