What’s summer without getting a little wet! A company simply titled “Slide the City” has listed Vancouver as one of the to-be-determined locations to host their giant 1,000 foot long and 22 foot wide water slides. Started in Salt Lake City, Slide the City is a company that roves from town to town bringing joy in the form of a giant slip n’ slide.
How giant? A good 3 football fields worth of length! The slide is used as a fundraising event for Ronald McDonald House and Aids Foundations in the city. Aside from its good cause, Slide the City is a also a family-friendly water party event. It boasts live music, food, drinks, water, and –of course– the biggest slip n’ slide to ever hit the pavement.
There are eight locations across Canada that may be hosting the giant slide, and Vancouver is lucky to be a city that is being considered. At this time the location of the Vancouver event is still TBD, but we’ve only got a few weeks of summer left, so hopefully they determine the location soon!
Tickets to slide cost around $15 for single slides, $25 for triple, and $35 for unlimited access. But, it’s all going to a good cause!
Where do you think the Vancouver Slide the City giant waterslide should be hosted? Ontario Street? The Lions Gate Bridge? Lonsdale in North Vancouver? Let us know in the comment section!
