Speed Reading — Level 0 — 100 wpm 

This is the text (if you need help).

A slide has opened in L.A. It is on the outside of a building, 300 metres high. It is made of 3-cm-thick glass. It cost $3.5 million to make. The slide starts at the 70th floor and goes down 15 metres. It takes about five seconds from top to bottom. Only one person can slide at a time.

The tower's owner wanted to make something that other buildings didn't have. The slide can support the weight of a school bus. A reporter went on the slide. He said you finish very quickly. You don't even have time to scream. It costs $25 to get to the 70th floor area. A ride on the slide costs an extra $8.
