The Slide will twist and spin 12 times and during the 40 seconds trip, riders can expect to hit speeds of up to 15 miles per hour. Officially is launched on 24 June this year. To build that toboggan is used a quantity of steel from which could be freely made two buses. The ArcelorMittal Orbit toboggan is made up of 30 sections and have a total of 12 major curves. The price of a card is £15 – £10 to enter the tower and another £5 for the ride and it is opened from 10am to 6pm every day. But, this “adrenalin weapon” is certainly not recommended for those with weaker heart. Also is not recommended to persons who suffer from claustrophobia.
