Save on your hotel -


The world’s longest and tallest tunnel slide and the UK’s highest freefall abseil, the ArcelorMittal Orbit is a viewing experience like no other. Made of 35,000 bolts and enough steel to make 265 double-decker buses, the ArcelorMittal Orbit offers extraordinary 20-mile views over Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and the London skyline. Steel was partly chosen as a building material for its infinite recyclability 60% of the ArcelorMittal Orbit is made from recycled steel, including washing machines and used cars. Discover your ride with friends and family to a 40-second journey through the twists turns and drops of the slide, a hair-raising experience that’s not for the faint hearted.
