An outdoor glass slide, perched 1,000 feet over downtown Los Angeles, is set to make its dizzying debut outside the West Coast's tallest building this summer.

Come June, thrill-seekers will be able to slide down 36 feet of glass alongside the U.S. Bank Tower, it was announced Tuesday.

Dubbed the Skyslide, this attraction will give riders a bird's-eye view of the city’s streets while sliding between the tower's 70 and 69 stories on 1.25-inch thick glass.

The glass slide will be situated 1,000-feet above downtown Los Angeles.

The attraction is part of a revamp to the 72-story building, which will feature an open-air observation deck that's being touted as California’s tallest.

For those brave riders who manage to keep their stomachs, there will also be a restaurant.

Guests will be required to purchase a $25 ticket to visit the rooftop complex, dubbed OUE Skyspace L.A. To slide down, it will cost an additional $8.

Skyslide opens on June 25. Presale tickets will be available on March 18th.
