This organization has been touring the US and Canada, bringing its family-friendly slip-and-slide water party wherever it goes. There will be live music, food, beverages, and of course, the biggest slip-and-slide known to man.


Tickets are still on sale, however Regular Registration is only open until Saturday, July 9 and prices go up from then on out. Early Bird tickets are sold out. There are plenty of packages to choose from depending on how serious of a slip-and-slider you are. Included with registration is a mouth guard, drawstring bag, and a rentable inflatable tube that can be purchased afterwards for $2 to take home as a souvenir. This slide is the real deal.

Attendees must be over 5 years of age and at least 46” tall. Participants are encouraged to wear water park attire and advised against wearing anything that may damage the hardware. An inflatable tube (provided) is required on the slide. Parking is available near Cricket Hill. Rain or shine, the slide must go on!
