The UK's Highest Virtual Reality Experience

Hit speeds of 100mph on The Slide or test your balance and fear of heights on Vertigo! Tickets are £10 per experience and available to purchase on our open-air Skydeck.


Test your nerve 800ft above London on our heart pounding, adrenaline filled Virtual Reality experiences!

This summer, we've introduced two new exhilarating Virtual Reality experiences on our open-air Skydeck. For a limited time, you'll be able to test your balance on ‘Vertigo’ or enjoy the thrill of ‘The Slide’ travelling at up to 100 miles per hour... if you dare! 

The Slide

Enjoy the thrill of travelling at up to 100mph on the world's highest virtual slide! Experience heights up to 800ft above London on an adrenaline-fuelled 360-degree virtual reality experience that swoops and slides through the city’s skyline. The hair-raising ride takes you on an extreme multi-sensory journey and finally answers the call of Londoners to turn The Shard into a helter skelter!


Test your nerve and fear of heights on Vertigo! This virtual adventure sees the building fall away, leaving you suspended in the air, walking across The Shard’s early infrastructure and balancing on the stripped back construction site of Western Europe’s tallest building. Romeo the fox - our mascot that represents the intrepid real fox who was discovered on Level 72 during construction of the building - also makes an appearance as you take your instructions from the site foreman. 


Virtual Reality tickets available to buy on the day on the open-air Skydeck.
