Are you a kid at heart who wishes you could have the same fun you used to have on a slip-n-slide but on an adult level?
Utah based company Slide the City is making those dreams come true tomorrow downtown Salt Lake City.
A custom built, 1000 foot vinyl slide with padding will be placed from 300 North down main street to North Temple tomorrow from 11-7 featuring 150 feet in elevation drop in a 20-25 second wet and soapy slide of your life.
“We are a Utah based company and we are kicking of the first full season of our Slide the City tour here in our own state,” said T.R. Gourley, President of the Water; Slide the City. “All of our family and friends are here and we invite the entire community family out for the amazing event. We are expecting huge crowds and even bigger smiles and laughs all day tomorrow.”
In its first full Slide the City season, Gourley expects to have 3000 participants downtown tomorrow.
“We have had 2000 people preregister,” said Gourley. “We expect another 1000 people to come out tomorrow to ride the slide. It has been a lot of fun to see the fantastic community response to our idea. Seeing the early enthusiasm is fun, but I cannot wait to see the reactions from the riders tomorrow as they see the slide for the first time.”
Slide the City is a family friendly slip-and-slide water party event. Slide the City also partners with the Ronald McDonald house and the Utah Aids Foundation to help raise money for charities so come “Slide for a Cause” says Gourley.
There will be live music, food, drinks, water, and of course the biggest slip and slide ever to hit asphalt. Make sure to bring your water balloons, buckets, floaties, and water guns (non-realistic of course), to squirt, spray, splash, and get all attending soaked.
Prices range from $20 to $50 dollars for the Slide the City package you want to purchase. More information can be found at Slide the City.
