This weekend is the official start of Summer Fun and my family is ready for Summer! We are making summer plans and a waterslide visit (or five!) is certainly on the list. When Slide the City reached out regarding Slide the City Atlanta, I was only too happy to share the information with my readers! If you haven’t heard about Slide the City, let me share exactly what it is with you.
EPIC WATERSLIDE?! YES!
If that video wasn’t enough action, Slide the City is a three block long waterslide that will be in Centennial Olympic Park Saturday, June 25. That’s the easy way to explain it but it’s actually an epic block party with food, music, vendors and street entertainers for families and friends to enjoy. The day begins with the first sliders at 9:00 am and you can select a two-hour wave time when you register to make sure that your time slot has plenty of time and space for you to slide with fun!
There are several different packages to choose from starting with the Single Slider that offers a single slide, drawstring bad, and mouth guard, all the way up to the All-Day Slider that adds on the unlimited rides down the slide and comes with an inflatable tube, mouth guard, hat and T-shirt.
Here are a few things to note when making your ticket purchase:
- The slides are open to everyone 5 years of age/46 inches tall and over. Each sliders must have their own tube and sliders must be capable of sliding 1,000 feet on their own tube.
- There is no bag check and the basic rule of thumb is if you don’t want it on your body during the slide, leave it home.
- You are welcome to bring your camera, Go-Pro or selfie-stick but please use your discretion in sliding safely and making sure that your selfie stick is secured.
- This is a rain or shine event. Only in cases of severe weather will it be cancelled and you’ll be able to find those updates on the event Facebook page here.
