Slide the city
by Slide the city
Slide the city is a family friendly slip-and-slide water party event.
With live music, food, drinks, water, and of course the biggest slip and slide ever to hit asphalt.
Slide the city are bringing 1000 feet of soapy vinyl to brighten the city streets.
The slide was made in USA and travels with slide the city throughout the country.
Sliding starts at noon and goes until 5pm. If you are a VIP you can slide from 11am to 12pm and from 5pm to 6pm with just the exclusive types.
If you believe in the laws of physics, you might think that that the fundamental requirements for a decent water slide are a steep angle and a hearty dose of gravity.
But neither of these basics matter for thrill-seekers riding the phenomenon that is currently taking over cities in North America – a horizontal water slide so long that streets have to be shut to fit it into any big urban centre. Slide The City stretches out for almost a quarter of a mile – 1,000ft.
Made of slippery (but durable) vinyl, filled with soapy water, the slide offers brave customers the chance to slip along three blocks of their nearest metropolis at high speed.
The footage in the video was shot in Salt Lake City – the capital of the westerly US state of Utah – at the weekend, and shows a head-cam view of a rider over 43 rapid seconds. © slide the city
