This week we headed to LA again to check out the OUE Skyspace. I had originally come across this place online and saw that they have a GLASS SLIDE that is located on the side of a skyscraper at almost 1,000 feet above the city. Not only do they have the slide, but they also have several outdoor terraces that are absolutely breath-taking. I highly recommend taking a couple of hours to experience this place.
Here’s what you should know:
- There is plenty of parking! There are at least two parking structures nearby. Be sure to get your parking validated before you leave so you will only have to pay $8 (for three hours).
- We bought our tickets online at RUSH49. This saved us about $24 each ticket if you are planning to ride the slide (this put each ticket at $23.95). If you think the slide might not be for you, you can still buy a regular admission ticket to experience all of the beauty inside and outside of the building. If you change your mind about the slide once you’re there, you can upgrade your ticket. The important thing to know (that I didn’t know before going) was that if you are buying your tickets from Rush49, you must check your email after making your purchase and follow the instructions on how to access your tickets after that.
- Entry to the Skyspace is timed, but once you are inside you can stay for as long as you like.
- Before you get to the beautiful outdoor spaces, there are also unique things to see inside such as an infinity mirror, a silhouette wall, and several other art pieces. If you’re an interior design junkie, the elevators, staircases, and seating spaces are impressive to say the least.
- The slide ride is very short (think maybe 6 seconds), but it is definitely worth experiencing at least once. It’s a good idea to have someone at the bottom of the slide to take either a picture or a video while you slide down. OUE will also take your picture for you mid ride and have the picture available for purchase before you leave.
- The best part about this adventure is that it truly is too beautiful to capture on camera. While there are plenty of photo ops, the view, the fresh air, and the experience as a whole are something to be experienced first hand.
Stay tuned for another post on the Skyspace, as we have already decided to go back to check out the views at night!
Don’t forget to share your OUE Skyspace pictures with me, and if you want to see a little bit more about the space before you visit, Julianna has a vlog on it that you can find here.
