Are you a daredevil? If yes, then you have to try the new Skyslide, located in Los Angeles, California, U.S. Even if you don't like to live life on the edge, here are seven things you should know about this ride.

• The material used for the 45-foot-long (13.7 meters) slide is made of three-ply glass yet is only 1.25 inches thick.

• It hangs 1,000 feet (305 meters) above the ground on the US Bank Tower, the tallest skyscraper in western U.S.

• It's the main feature of OUE Skyspace, an open-air observation deck that offers visitors a 360-degree view of the city. 

• The ride can withstand hurricane-force winds of up to 110 miles per hour (177 kmph).
