Ride A Glass Slide 1,000 Feet Above L.A.

They should have gone all the way and made the slide go from the 70th floor to street level.

To ride, you board a gray mat and pull it up over your feet -- kind of like a makeshift sled -- and scoot yourself over the precipice. Only one person can go at a time. Forty-five feet sounds long, but the ride takes just a few seconds. Before you can get a really proper scream going, you're launched out onto a safety mat on an outdoor deck on the 69th floor. Many of the people in attendance Thursday surprised themselves by wanting to take a second or third ride.
