LOS ANGELES, Calif. (AP) - OUE announced plans for the official grand opening of OUE Skyspace LA. From nearly 1,000 feet above the city in the iconic U.S. Bank Tower, OUE Skyspace LA will honor the culture, community and people that make Los Angeles unlike any city in the world.
In addition to panoramic views of Southern California, the observation deck will boast a breathtaking thrill factor: the Skyslide, a 45-foot, outdoor, glass slide.

"Los Angeles is beloved for its incredible architecture and natural beauty, and now everyone has the opportunity to be a part of it in a whole new way," said Mayor Eric Garcetti. "OUE Skyspace LA will give millions of Angelenos and visitors from everywhere an unforgettable experience - taking in our entire cityscape from a breathtaking vantage point."
