    The Slide

  • The Slide is the world's tallest and longest tunnel slide at 178m long and 76m high.

  • It twists and turns 12 times, including a tight corkscrew section named the ?bettfeder' - after the German word for ?bedspring'.

  • In the exhilarating 40-second trip, riders slide on a specially designed mat and hit speeds of up to 15 miles per hour.

  • Visitors are able see out through polycarbonate 'windows' for some of The Slide.

  • The Slide was designed by Belgian artist Carsten Holler, at the invitation of Anish Kapoor, the creator of the ArcelorMittal Orbit.

  • The Slide has been manufactured by world-renowned slide manufacturer Wiegand and British firm Interkey.

  • Steel for The Slide was contributed by ArcelorMittal.

  • The Slide is made from 800mm diameter, 3mm thick stainless steel tubes split into 30 sections, each measuring between five and nine metres long. Each section was lifted into place by a team of specialist abseilers, using a complex procedure involving ropes and pulleys, specifically designed for The Slide's construction project.

  • The slide ends with a 50 metre straight run to the ground
