ArcelorMittal Orbit - The World's Longest Tunnel Slide

London Legacy - ArcelorMittal Orbit from Lobster Pictures on Vimeo.

One of our latest projects has given us the privilege of demonstrating our superb video production skills, as well as our time-lapse expertise.

We documented both the fabrication and building of the world’s tallest and longest tunnel slide, measuring in at 178 metres!  Filming has taken place in both Frankfurt and the UK over a period of 3 months so far.

The Slide itself twists around the UK’s tallest sculpture, the ArcelorMittal Orbit, which was constructed by and named after the world’s largest steel company.  

Designed by leading contemporary artists Sir Anish Kapoor and Cecil Balmond OBE, The ArcelorMittal Orbit was built as part of QE Olympic Park to commemorate the London 2012 olympics and paralympics.  Anish Kapoor later invited fellow artist Carsten Höller to design The Slide, creating a unique and awe-inspiring addition to the landscape of East London.  

The Slide will open to the public on 24th June and tickets are available from their official website.
