Opening in London later this year, is this huge tunnel slide wrapped around the ArcelorMittal Orbit, a sculpture that was designed for the 2012 Olympics.

The slide will allow visitors to loop their way through parts of the structure on their way to the ground.

The tight corkscrew design of the tunnel slide will have visitors descending 178m (over 583 feet), from the observation level to the ground.

This is what the sculpture looked like when it was originally built (without the slide), with the stairs winding their way up to the observation tower.

Once at the top, you can view London and all of the surrounding areas. If you want to ride the slide, you will have to wait until June 24th for opening day!
