Located towards the top of the US Bank tower you can enjoy the unique experience of going down a glass slide at Oue Skyspace Los Angeles. My Mom and I were very excited to check out Oue Skyspace last month. Every time my parents come to visit we always try and plan fun adventures for us to do. We purchased discounted tickets through Goldstar. In addition to getting a discounted price you are able to use the gold star tickets any day through the end of the year. If you are planning to do several activities in the LA area consider purchasing the Go Los Angeles card. It includes admission to Oue Skyspace as well as several other fun places like Warner Bros Studio. You can purchase a Go Los Angeles card here.
Be sure to check the actual Oue Skyspace website before your visit to make sure that they are not closed for a special event. The date that my Mom and I went there was a special event at night so all tickets had to be used by 3pm.
We parked in a public parking structure near the entrance to Oue. After spending time at the observation deck and then walking to Angels Flight & Grand Central Market we owed around $15. Unless you uber you’ll just have to accept that you’ll most likely have to pay for parking since you’re in downtown. Once you go inside you will have to go through a metal detector. Then you’ll take your first elevator ride.
Once you’ve gotten off the first elevator you will have a chance to walk around a small exhibit showcasing what the City of Angels has to offer. When you are finished with the exhibit you will get on another elevator to go up to the 69th and 70th floors. There is the top level where you get on the glass slide and the bottom level with the open air observation decks and the bar.
On my first trip to OUE I visited during the day. However, they host a lot of fun events in the evening. I won tickets from an instagram contest to their 80’s night which included unlimited rides on the glass slide. It was a really fun experience getting to check it out in the evening and seeing all of the city lights. I would love to go back again at sunset.
As a bit of an adventure seeker who has been skydiving and in a hot air balloon the glass slide didn’t scare me. However, the slide is too short! I hardly even had a chance to look down because it is over so quickly. My Mom and I switched off waiting at the bottom of the slide so that we could record each other. If you’d like to see my video on the slide you can view in on my Instagram here.
When you go down the slide you sit on material that is similar to a towel. You will land on a cushioned pad so no need to worry about a rough landing.
The observation deck is located about 1,000 above Los Angeles which offers some great views of the city. You can see the Hollywood Sign, Griffith Observatory, Dodger Stadium, and the Staples Center among other recognizable locations.
If you’re interested in finding other locations through LA where you can take pictures with angel wings be sure to read this post.
You can get sandwiches, snacks, and drinks from the bar area. I would have a snack or a drink here but save a meal for one of the other restaurants in downtown or Hollywood. If you’re wanting a fun experience I recommend going over to Grand Central Market or Clifton’s for a meal.
Is Oue Skyspace worth visiting? Yes! I really enjoyed coming here and would be happy to come back again.
