Discover the world’s longest tunnel slide in London
In a modern merge of a school playground mainstay and an innovative art installation, London’s ArcelorMittal Orbit tunnel slide is making all your childhood dreams come true.
Pitched at a staggering 178m tall, the ArcelorMittal Orbit is the world’s longest tunnel slide and takes a mere 40-seconds to complete the trip to the bottom.
Not for those with a weak stomach, visitors circle around the tunnel slide 12 times as they weave their way through the famous loops and curves of the iconic structure, before zooming down a 50-metre vertical plummet to the finish.
Designed by German artist Carsten Höller to entertain some 130,000 visitors during the 2012 London Olympic Games, the unique design is the result of collaboration between sculptor Sir Anish Kapoor and engineer Cecil Balmond.
Comprised of more than 35,000 bolts and enough recycled steel to craft 265 double-decker buses, the ArcelorMittal Orbit offers unprecedented 20-mile views over Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and the London skyline.
