We told you back in January that 2016 was set to see the world’s tallest and longest slide be built in London. Even then, we didn’t quite believe it ourselves. But now, good people of London, we can confirm that construction for the slide in the Olympic park is underway!

The slide, which will wrap around the Orbit 12 times, will cost £5 per person per go (on top of entry admission to the park). But looking at the first pieces being fit into place, we can’t help but get butterflies of excitement.
We’re still to find out the planned completion date for the slide, but we’ll keep our eyes peeled for you.
