Tickets just went on sale for the world's tallest and longest tunnel slide at London's ArcelorMittal Orbit Tower. Would you try it?

Between outdoor screenings in the moat at the Tower of London and a naked restaurant coming to town, there is no lack of kooky reasons to visit London. And now the city has yet another attraction: Tickets just went on sale for the world's tallest and longest tunnel slide at London's ArcelorMittal Orbit Tower.

The 584-foot-long slide is set to open on June 24 as part of the 377-foot high Orbit, which was created by Anish Kapoor for the 2012 Olympics.

"Since 1999, I have built a number of slides, both free-standing and attached to buildings, but never onto another artwork as in this case," said artist Carsten Höller. "Now that the two artworks will be intertwined with each other, I see it as one of these double situations that I am so interested in."

It will feature 30 sections and 12 turns, including a corkscrew twist. It starts at a height of 242 feet and sliders will hit speeds of 15 miles per hour and take 40 seconds to complete. Tickets cost $22 and include access to the Orbit's viewing platform.

The daring attraction will also join the list of other wild slides around the world, including the 70-story-high glass slide being built along the outside of the Los Angeles' US Bank Tower in downtown.
