Though the US Bank Tower may be losing its distinction as the tallest building in the West, it's made some sky-high additions: restaurant 71Above, an open-air observation deck and a glass slide. Those last two are both part of the OUE Skyspace LA. Skyslide, accessible with an additional ticket, is an outdoor glass slide suspended 1,000 feet above Downtown Los Angeles.
Tip: Skip the morning hours and wait for the typical marine layer to burn off for the best visibility.

There are some incredible views in LA, but the view from atop the US Bank Tower is in a class of its own—at least until the Wilshire Grand opens. It's not just about the height here, though; everything about the space is incredibly slick and polished. The slide is certainly an adrenaline rush, though it happens so quickly that it all feels like a blur. It's certainly expensive, but the price puts it on par with other observation decks in the US—though an extra $8 for the slide is pushing it a little; here's hoping all that money goes toward maintenance.
I slid down the slide yesterday and it was so much fun!! I'm so excited to see LA joining the ranks of other American cities who are turning their tallest towers into exciting observation decks. The fact that we have a slide definitely adds even more draw.
