The Olympic Park is actually really easy to get to using public transit. Access to the "orbit" slide is a bit of a walk (about 10 mins) but there's lots to see on the way. It is a bit pricey, but the kids really enjoyed...More

It's only 40 seconds to go down the slide so don't calculate the $ per hour rate. Best view in the city from the top. Slide is unique and it's a check the box thing.

We had a family trip here with the youngest being 13 and the oldest being 68 and we all enjoyed it. It feels a lot longer than 42 seconds and there are lots of twists and turns on the way!

Was very fun and well organised. The views from the top were impressive. A unique experience - would definitely recommend.

The slide and the tower itself are good - the slide apparently was a little slower due to the humidity on the day - but be aware the wait times can be erratic. We ended up actually going down the slide around an hour after...More

Hi, you check in at reception, we queued about 20 minutes here but it was fully booked the day we went which might explain why it was slow. The lift up is quick and you can probably expect at least a 10-15 minute wait as you... More

Yes it’s really scary. But you must do it. You can even have a video of your horrific ride down, all 40 seconds of it lol 😂

It’s a reasonably smooth ride with padded mat but at a steep angle with sudden twists and turns so if you have a definite back problem I would suggest avoid
