Should I pre-book my tickets for The Slide?

We recommend booking for The Slide in advance as tickets sell out very quickly and we cannot guarantee entry on the day.

Can I buy a ticket just for The Slide?

To use The Slide you must have a combination ticket for General Entry to the ArcelorMittal Orbit and The Slide. We do not sell standalone tickets for The Slide.

Does the London Pass cover The Slide?

No, but there is the option for London Pass holders to upgrade on the day subject to availability.

What is the age and height limit for The Slide?

You must be at least eight years old and over 1.3m in height to ride The Slide. There is no maximum height limit.

We have been advised by the Health and Safety Executive that having a height limit for reasons of Health and Safety does not constitute discrimination. We hope that you understand and accept the decisions our staff make are made in interest of your own safety.

Can my child Slide on their own?

Yes, as all visitors must Ride The Slide individually.  Please note that children aged 8 to 13 must enter the attraction accompanied by an Adult with a valid ticket.  The Adult is not required to Ride The Slide.  You can purchase a ticket for General Entry for one visitor and a ticket for General Entry + The Slide for those visitors wishing to Ride The Slide.

Yes, there are a limited number of lockers available at the base of the sculpture.  You will need a £1 coin to operate the locker and it is refundable.
