ArcelorMittal Orbit

Stand on top of the world in the UK’s tallest sculpture. 

The Slide at the ArcelorMittal Orbit is now open! It is London’s most spectacular and thrilling new attraction, at a staggering height of 178m it is the world’s tallest and longest tunnel slide and you’ll experience speeds of 15 miles per hour! Tickets now on sale!

Due to popular demand, more tickets have just been released for summer and we are now taking bookings until March. Don’t miss your chance to Ride the Slide!

Zoom up in the lift and ascend 80 metres to the top of Britain's tallest sculpture. Here you'll be greeted by a show-stopping panorama of London at its very best. Play a spot of "I spy" with the view that stretches 20 miles and identify the iconic buildings that dot the London skyline: The Shard, The Gherkin, Big Ben, Canary Wharf and The O2 Arena- to name a few!

The distinctive looping red steel tower stands 114.5 metres high and inside the venue you can enjoy more delights from Turner-prize winning designer, Sir Anish Kapoor. Turn the horizon on its head with the concave mirrors and interpret the view up close using the interactive screens and gigapixel technology- you have to see it to believe it!

What's on offer?

  • A bird's eye view of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park
  • A new way to see London
  • Unique spaces for private events from weddings to corporate functions
  • Be inside the UK's largest piece of public art
  • NEW abseiling experiences coming in 2016- book your descent from the sky now!


  • The ArcelorMittal Orbit is the tallest sculpture in the UK at 114m high – but if it were a vertical tower (with all the loops flattened out) it would be 560 metres, higher than the Eiffel Tower
  • The design was the winning entry in a competition to design and produce a sculpture that would be an iconic centre-piece for Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and act as an accessible work of public art
  • The ArcelorMittal Orbit was generously funded by steel company ArcelorMittal


As part of our commitment to evolving and developing the ArcelorMittal Orbit, a planning application has been submitted to create a slide from the platforms of the structure down to ground level.

Anish Kapoor has invited Belgian artist Carsten Höller to create a giant slide for the ArcelorMittal Orbit in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London. This is a unique collaboration between two of the world's leading artists and will be a major new art installation for the capital.

The enclosed steel tube will wind its way in and out of the lattice work of the ArcelorMittal Orbit, twisting down to the ground as an alternative to the staircase. The addition of a slide would be an exciting and alternative way to descend from the viewing platforms, and will give a very different perspective of Britain’s tallest sculpture. It is hoped that the slide will open in 2016.
