ArcelorMittal Orbit

With breath-taking views of London, the world’s longest and tallest tunnel slide and the UK’s highest freefall abseil, the ArcelorMittal Orbit is the country’s most exciting viewing platform.

Journey 114.5m into the clouds and explore London’s famous skyline from the top of the ArcelorMittal Orbit. Enjoy stunning views of up to 20 miles, including St Paul’s Cathedral, the O2 and Wembley as well as a birds eye view of the iconic London 2012 venues. 

And what goes up, must come down! Those who are brave enough can ride The Slide, a hair-raising experience that’s not for the feint-hearted. Hold on tight through the twists, turns and drops of the world’s tallest and longest tunnel slide as it weaves its way through the iconic red steel frame of the UK’s tallest sculpture. Travel through the 178m long slide at speeds of up to 15mph as The Slide loops its way around the ArcelorMittal Orbit 12 times taking visitors through gentle curves, thrilling drops and a tight corkscrew named ‘the bettfeder’ – bedspring in German.

Daredevils won’t want to miss out on the exhilarating descent of the UK’s highest freefall abseil. Hold your breath as you step over the edge of the iconic red steel of the ArcelorMittal Orbit before taking the plunge and making an 80m adrenaline-fuelled journey to the ground.

Or you can take the stairs or the lift – it’s up to you!
