Attraction Information

  • Tourist Attractions icon Tourist Attractions

Ages: 9+

Venue type: Indoor

Travel 80m to the top of Britain's tallest sculpture, the ArcelorMittal Orbit. It's the world’s highest and longest tunnel slide, at a whopping 178m long!

Be bowled over by panoramic views of London, while squeezing in a few rounds of eye spy with landmarks like the Gherkin, Big Ben and The Shard. Footy fans can even spot some of London’s famous football grounds, including West Ham Utd. Take your time at the top - you’ll have a chance to learn more about the tower with interactive storytelling screens and of course, don’t forget to flip the world upside down by taking a peek in one of the concave mirrors.

Now for the main event! They’ve managed to pack a whole lot into a 40-second trip with loops circling the iconic structure 12 times, before whizzing you right back down to the ground on a 50m straight drop. Everyone over 1.3m tall and 8 years can ride the slide and it’s certainly more thrilling than the stairs!

  • Ride the world’s highest and longest tunnel slide
  • Take in panoramic views of London
  • Explore the iconic ArcelorMittal Orbit
