Celebrate the 4th of July In the Sky! Enjoy one the most scenic views of multiple fireworks displays in Southern California with a ride on the Skyslide, a 45-foot, fully-enclosed, all-glass adventure landing on the exterior of the iconic US Bank Tower. Ride nearly 1,000 ft. above Downtown LA to experience the city from an entirely new perspective. With fireworks surrounding you in the see-through slide, this is the ultimate for adventure-goers on Independence Day. The experience also includes two drink tickets and access to all levels of OUE Skyspace LA.
