Bank Tower owners OUE Limited announced today a new addition to the Skyspace observation deck tourist attraction that's guaranteed to give it that "thrill factor": a 36-foot long glass slide that will allow brave souls to slide from the 70th floor to the 69th along the outside of the building.
Called the Skyslide, the chute will be made of clear glass four inches thick [and] sit about 1,000 feet above the ground — la.curbed.com
