Bank Tower Slide

Our stomachs are in knots just looking at these mockups of a 1,000-foot-hight glass slide that may make its terrifying debut on the 72-story US Bank Tower in Downtown Los Angeles. Between bar hopping, game-watching, and gallery viewings, visitors and locals alike may soon get to shoot down from the 70th to the 69th floor in a glass-enclosed slide. The tallest tower on the West Coast is currently being renovated by Singaporean company OUE Ltd., but the company faces a challenge when it comes to attracting Internet companies who are known for creating Millennial-focused workplaces. Since the building boom in Downtown is saturated with brand-new digs, the company hopes to attract new companies here, through, well, a totally outrageously gimmicky it-just-might-work way.

Would you have the chomps to take a ride?
