I don’t get excited too easily, but when a 1,000 foot slip-and-slide comes to the Oklahoma City streets I don’t know who will be happier, the adults or the kids? If you haven’t heard, “Slide The City” is a family friendly slip-and-slide water party event with live music, food, drinks, water fights, and the mecca of slip-and-slides: a 1,000 foot long, soapy piece of vinyl. Just in case you’re not grasping just how long that is, well let me tell you, 1,000 feet is longer than THREE football fields! It is padded, plus you bring floaties to help slide through.
Make sure you also bring your water buckets, water guns, super soakers, water balloons, or anything else that can help you defend yourself and get others soaking wet!
Coming to Oklahoma City- July 25th, 2015
On July 25th, get ready to get wet and have fun. So mark your calendars and get your tickets, because registration is OPEN. The exact location is N Shartel & NW 8th Street.

A Glance At The First ‘Slide The City’ Event in Salt Lake City
The first Slide The City event in Salt Lake City, Utah was a huge success last summer! If you check out their site or Facebook page, you’ll see tons of photos and videos. Notice the huge smiles on everyone’s face!
3,000 tickets were available and each one of them sold out. So make sure you get your ticket quick! Ticket prices were from $15/single slide – $25/ triple slides and $35 for unlimited access. There were also VIP Tickets for $45 which gave an hour of exclusive sliding for VIP pass holders, plus lunch, t-shirt, and hat. All proceeds went towards Ronald McDonald House and the Utah Aids Foundation.
Looks like they had a BLAST!

Tara M, your comment should not represent Oklahoma in general, if you are used to getting government help and cheap deals, then this is not the type of event for you , not every place you go will have pitty on you and give you things for cheap or for free. If you cant afford a family fun day then maybe you should consider doing something else with your life. I am sure you can save $15 every now and then. Do the math and maybe you are already spending more money than that on some unnecessary crap.
SMH at some of the negative comments. I can't afford a Mercedes or big house but you don't see me complaining about those prices. If you can't afford something, go do something else. Why complain. If you think they should offer this at a more affordable rate, why don't you set something up and see what happens.
I'm not on any government help.. and I can't afford it either. Negative comments directed toward people that do receive government help really makes me mad.. Not everyone receiving benefits are freeloaders. . Lighten up people! !!! I have 5 grandkids... no way I can afford $60 each a ticket. Yes I work full time! There should be a family pass or group pass yo help out.
Yes, for unlimited it is a bit steep for families and it is being advertised as a FAMILY event. The lady (and I use that word losely), jumping to conclusions she clearly has no understanding of, needs to get off her high horse and shut up! You are accusing someone of asking for something she did not and living in a way that you do not know to be true! It is statements like yours that start idiot wars online and controversy for no reason at all! I don't believe it is your job to be a personal judge and jury for anyone. I could take a guess at how you live your life too, but that's not my job either. Now, if you would like to state your opinion of the cost that is fine, however, personally attacking people is NOT okay you are bullying her and I'm not going to sit still for it! Zero tolerance! I am flagging your post. With your attitude I'm sure you will try to retaliate. I DO have a family, a job, and if I choose to, I can save my money and we can participate in any way we choose. I own my home (no mortgage), I own my vehicles, (no payments), I pay my bills, and I participate in community events. We do not live on welfare. I do however understand the person you commented on opinion that if everyone in her family could not participate due to cost then no one in her family will. That is called being a loving and caring parent regardless of social statues. Now, can we all get back on the ACTUAL subject, which was this event itself and not a platform for whatever your other agenda is here. This post is about "Slide The City" not opinions of others. You can find somewhere else to attack individuals.
I think it looks like a lot of fun! But the proving is ridiculous. For $40 bucks I can almost get pay for two entries to an all day water park with a lot more to offer. I will still go drive down to see it because I'm Curious to see what it looks like and how they set it up! :)
