Lawsuit Filed Against LA's Skyslide

A lawsuit has been filed claiming that a woman broke her ankle on the recently opened Skyslide at the top of U.S. Bank Tower in Los Angeles. A feature of the skyscraper's new observation lounge, the glass-enclosed slide stretches 45 feet from the 70th to the 69th floors, letting riders zoom above downtown LA at a height of 1,000 feet for a hot second (we tried the attraction out when it opened last month). The lawsuit says the slide's design doesn't give the rider a chance to slow down enough before reaching the end, and a stack of mats at that spot created a gap trapping riders' feet. 

To check it out for yourself, you have to pay $25 to get to the swanky observation deck and another $8 to go down the slide, which is pretty steep in both senses of the word, considering that the ride takes about two seconds.
