ArcelorMittal Orbit Overview

As London's stunning skyscape slips by, you'll travel down the UK's highest public artwork via bright and dark portions. The Slide twists and turns 12 times, including a tight corkscrew segment known as the 'bettfeder’. The slide ends with a 50-meter straight run to the ground. Riders are predicted to reach speeds of up to 15 miles per hour throughout the thrilling 40-second ride!

Not only that, but there's more! Take in London's breath-taking skyline from the ArcelorMittal Orbit, where you can locate renowned sites and learn more about them through interactive screens. Turn the world on its head with Anish Kapoor's stunning mirrors and take a look inside the magnificent London Stadium.

The ArcelorMittal Orbit is a 114.5-meter-high sculpture and viewing tower in Stratford, London's Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. It is the biggest piece of public art in the United Kingdom, and it is meant to be a permanent legacy of London's hosting of the 2012 Summer Olympic and Paralympic Games, aiding with the Stratford area's post-Olympics reconstruction. It is located between the Olympic Stadium (now known as London Stadium) and the Aquatics Centre and provides tourists with two observation platforms from which to observe the whole Olympic Park.

Orbit was designed by artist Sir Anish Kapoor and Arup Group engineer Cecil Balmond.

Orbit is a two-story observation tower with two inside viewing platforms, each with a capacity of 150 people. The observation deck, according to the Greater London Authority, provides "unparalleled views over the full of Olympic Park and London's skyline." Visitors should take the elevator to the top and down the 455-step stairway, to appreciate the full view.
