Remember the massive Slip-n-Slide that appeared on Potrero Hill last June? Well, Slide the City, a new Salt Lake City-based operation that was not behind the SF event last year is now planning roving events much like that one across the country, with an SF slip-sliding party planned for a TBD date in July, in a location that's also TBD but hopefully there'll be another hill involved? One important question remains, though: Will there be any water left in California by July to support this type of urban water-park fun?
Their apparatus includes a 1,000-foot slide that's padded underneath, and you or your kid have to be this high (46 inches) to participate. Joining in the sliding fun will cost $20 per person for a single slide, if purchased in advance, or $25 day-of. You can also by a 3-slide pass for $35, or an unlimited pass for $55. Sign up/register here for updates on the SF event.
Also note: They're planning a Slide the City event in Oakland in June. Register for that one here.
