I don’t get excited too easily, but with the thought of a 1,000 foot slip-and-slide I don’t know who would 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 big 1,000 feet is... That's longer than THREE football fields.
Bring your floatie, plus come well equipped for a huge water fight that is bound to happen! With tickets, you get a water gun, but also come armed with water balloons, super soakers, or anything else that can help you defend yourself and get others soaking wet! You can attend the event for free, but need tickets to ride the slide.
Coming to Dallas - Saturday August 22nd, 2015

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!
