What Can I Expect

Ride the Orbit slide - the highest, tallest and longest slide in the whole wide world! You all know just how cool Sir Anish Kapoor's ArcelorMittal Orbit sculpture in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park is. Well, a visit to this iconic structure is about to get a whole lot more hair raising with these tickets for the Olympic Park slide.

You know what they say: what goes up, must come down. In the case of the Orbit, you can take the two lifts or the 500-odd stairs all the way up to the viewing platform that sits at 78m above the ground. On a good weather day you can see right across the capital from this East London tower. But what's that screaming noise coming from the corner? Oh that's the next slider rider launching themselves off into the unknown…

Put simply the Orbit slide is the way to get back down from the top of the ArcelorMittal Orbit. The stats say it all. It's 178m long, starts at 78m above the ground and will have you twisting and turning around one of the red 'arms' of the Orbit a total of 12 times. The ride lasts 40 seconds and you'll be reaching speeds of up to 15mph. Terrifying, thrilling and totally brilliant all at the same time.

At the top of the slide you'll be kitted out in elbow pads and head cap. If you imagine a bobsleigh ride down an enclosed, narrow metal tube with darks bits and light bits, you've pretty much got the idea. Psyched up and ready to go, you lie down on your Orbit sliding mat, grab the handles and goooooo !

Expect hollers of delights, screams of fear, laughter of joy and big smiles when you conquer this amazing Olympic park slide, which finishes with a nifty near-vertical 50m drop before levelling out and delivering you at the bottom. As you step out of the slide, take a moment to take a look back at where you've just come from. Looking like one of those fancy extra twisty drinking straws from the crazy 80s, you can't quite believe that just a nanosecond ago it was you sliding down in that tube!

Easily the most extreme corkscrew ride ever, we think the Orbit slide is the only way to come back down from the top of the ArcelorMittal tower. Forget the lifts, ditch the stairs and dare yourselves to ride the slide at London's Olympic Park.

The experience was excellent but the into the blue vouchers did not book me onto the ride even though I thought I had been booked. This caused some problem and meant we had to change the time.

If you are looking to do something different, this is a unique experience. You get to have a view over London from the platform before you take the slide although the Gherkin, Shard, Tower 42 and Canary Wharf are some distance and thus seem very small from the top of the ArcelorMittal Orbit. The Slide ride is over in 40 seconds but it is the longest tunnel slide in the world and something you should do once in your life. At £16.50, an experience lasting less than a minute quite expensive hence the 4 star and not 5 star rating.
