We present you the largest toboggan in the world, called ArcelorMittal Orbit Tower. To descend from the top to bottom of the ArcelorMittal Orbit toboggan it takes 40 seconds. It is installed in the former Olympic Park in London and is designed by the Belgian / German artist Carsten Holler at the invitation of ArcelorMittal Orbit designer and british sculptor Sir Anish Kapoor. “ArcelorMittal Orbit Tower” is 178 meters high and it is the world’s tallest and longest tunnel slide. The main body of the toboggan has been built by the leading slide manufacturer Wiegand.
The Slide will twist and spin 12 times and during the 40 seconds trip, riders can expect to hit speeds of up to 15 miles per hour. Officially is launched on 24 June this year. To build that toboggan is used a quantity of steel from which could be freely made two buses. The ArcelorMittal Orbit toboggan is made up of 30 sections and have a total of 12 major curves. The price of a card is £15 – £10 to enter the tower and another £5 for the ride and it is opened from 10am to 6pm every day. But, this “adrenalin weapon” is certainly not recommended for those with weaker heart. Also is not recommended to persons who suffer from claustrophobia.
