The Urban Slide -- The World's Best 1,000 Ft. Slip-N-Slide

A Massive Water Slide Is Literally Taking to the Streets With a Nationwide Tour

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - February 05, 2015) - Starting this year, a new event centered on a big waterslide will be hitting every major city across the United States. How big? Try 1,000 feet -- the length of about three-and-a-half football fields. This is The Urban Slide.

The Urban Slide -- More Than Just 1000 Feet

Each Urban Slide event takes place on an inclined street inside of a major U.S. city. A constant stream of water flowing down both channels helps make the slide slippery. This is made possible by a water-recycling system that drastically cuts down on both water consumption and the need for soap.

The party doesn't stop when the sun goes down: Our nighttime slide is equipped with LED lights and blacklights that will light up the city streets for a truly unique slip-n-slide experience. The night slide is a special option for those who want to take slip-n-sliding to the next level.

Other features and amenities of The Urban Slide will include:

  • Food trucks, local vendors, and businesses to serve participants
  • 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
  • Water-themed games, Photo Booth, and more!

One Big Slide, Many Big Options

Registration for The Urban Slide can be done by selecting a location on The Urban Slide's website, and then selecting the number of slides a participant wants to do. Pricing starts at $10.

When registering, participants can choose to slide once, three times, or five times. Additional slides may be purchased at the event as well.

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

  1. How early a registration is made before the event begins -- the earlier the registration, the lower the price.
  2. How many times one wants to go down the slide -- More slides equals more value per slide.
  3. What time of the day one wants to slide on -- day or night.

Be sure to register early, as pricing is tiered based on attendees.

Each participant who registers receives a wristband (their "ticket" to the slide) and an inflatable tube to go down the slide with.

Sliding Across America

The Urban Slide plans to bring its big slide to every city in the United States -- starting with Houston, TX and College Station, TX. Where The Urban Slide will end up next depends on how many people pre-register for their city of choice. More pre-registrations for a city equals a higher chance that the city in question gets to experience the World's Best Slip-N-Slide.
