With exclusive timeslots for YPlan customers only, you lucky folks will get to descend the world’s highest – and at 178m, the world’s longest – tunnel slide. As you travel down the UK’s tallest public artwork, you'll pass through light and dark sections with London’s dramatic skyscape whizzing by. In the 40-second ride of a lifetime, you'll speed around the ArcelorMittal Orbit 12 times, weaving through the loops and curves of the iconic structure, including a tight corkscrew section names the ‘bettfeder’ – after the German word for ‘bedspring’ – and end with a 50m straight run back down to earth. The ArcelorMittal Orbit has been enthralling visitors since the London 2012 Games with it’s spectacular views of the London skyline and we know that you’ll love the new hair-raising slide experience so much that you’ll want to relive it again and again. Guess what? You can! With a limited number of tickets available on the day for just an additional £5 you can head straight back to the top and calm your nerves with the spectacular London skyline, before taking position and riding the slide once again.
