As the sun begins to set and the lights of the city start to twinkle in the twilight sky, journey 114.5m into the sky to the top of the ArcelorMittal Orbit for an exclusive late night opening on Friday.
For one night only the attraction will be open until 9pm so that visitors can watch the sun sink behind the some of London’s most famous landmarks from the top of the iconic sculpture, including The Shard, the O2 Arena and the BT Tower before braving The Slide, the world’s longest and tallest tunnel slide.
Are you brave enough to travel through 12 twists and turns at speeds of up to 15mph as The Slide takes you through gentle curves, thrilling drops and a tight corkscrew known as ‘the bettfeder’ - bedspring in German?
The Recorder has one family ticket to give away to the ArcelorMittal Orbit’s late night opening.
To be in with a chance of winning, email the answer to the following question to email@example.com by 3pm on Thursday. Include your full name, location and contact telephone number.
