1,000 ft "Urban Slide" Event Coming to Denver This June

Citizens Will Hit a Home Run This Summer as They Slide Down a Street Next to Coors Field

DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - June 08, 2015) - A new event centered on a big waterslide will be hitting Denver on the weekend of June 27-28. How big? Try 1,000 feet -- the length of about three-and-a-half football fields. This is The Urban Slide.

A recent viral YouTube video shows the giant slip-n-slide in action.

The Urban Slide -- More Than Just 1,000 Feet

The Urban Slide is an event that takes place on an inclined street in the middle of a city. The slide is made slippery by a unique water misting system that’s laid along the entire slide. This drastically cuts down on both water consumption and the need for soap.

Other features and amenities of The Urban Slide will include:

  • Food trucks to give out lunch and snacks to participants and onlookers
  • Music which will play beats along the entire slide
  • A bag check area to secure footwear and other belongings as people go down the slide

One Big Slide, Many Big Options

Registration for The Urban Slide’s Denver event can be done by going to the event page, selecting which day of the weekend to slide, and then selecting the number of slides a participant wants to do. People who register can slide down either once, three times, or even an unlimited amount of times in a single day depending on what ticket option they selected.

Pricing for The Urban Slide varies and depends mainly on two factors:

  1. How early a registration is made before the event begins -- the earlier the registration, the more money is saved.
  2. How many times one wants to go down the slide -- More slides equals more value per slide.

Each participant who registers receives a wristband (their “ticket” to the slide). Tubes are also required to ride The Urban Slide, and they can either be purchased at the event or participants can bring their own.
