London’s New See-Through Skyscraper Pool Has Twitter Users Saying ‘Hell No!’



A see-through pool set 115 feet in the air between two London skyscrapers is definitely making a big splash online, but Twitter users found a way to throw cold water on it.

The Sky Pool at the Embassy Gardens apartments is the world’s largest floating acrylic pool ― 82 feet long, 46 of which are suspended in midair, according to the Robb Report.

Residents can swim from one side to the other and see the street 10 stories below.

The Sky Pool was officially opened to residents earlier this month, but it really made waves on Twitter Tuesday morning after the BBC posted video of it.

While many people thought the Sky Pool was awesome, a lot of responses suggested a fear of heights combined with a fear of drowning, to the tune of “Hell, no!”

So…yeah…this is a big NO for me.

Of course I’d get in that pool… and sit right on the steps the whole time.

Just going to be honest. I’d poop in this pool if you made me swim across it. I’d be so frightened that is what I’d do. It would be like the scene in Caddyshack, but it wouldn’t be a Baby Ruth. It would be human poop.

Some people had questions.

This is absolutely just a scene from the opening of a disaster movie about earthquakes, right?

Others saw endless possibilities.

Was a bit busy this afternoon but have now spent about twenty minutes on eBay and I reckon you can get a drone, a small fish tank and some live piranhas for about two hundred quid.
