PHOENIX, July 24, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The citizens of Phoenix will find a unique way to cool off as this summer season comes to a close: A 1,000 Foot slip-n-slide that's over three-and-a-half football fields long. The Urban Slide, as its called, will be placed on the 7th Street bridge next to Chase Field during the upcoming weekend of August 1st and 2nd.
A recent viral YouTube video shows the giant slide in action.
The Urban Slide has recently held events this year in other major cities such as Dallas, Houston, Jacksonville, Baltimore, and Denver. The slide is made slippery by a unique water misting system that drastically cuts down on both water consumption and the need for soap. To make things even more unique, The Urban Slide will also have a night session that will be held Saturday night.
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
- Store items such as cellphone covers, bags, glasses, extra inflatable tubes, and more
Registration for The Urban Slide's Phoenix 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 the ticket type purchased. Special unlimited night slide tickets are also offered.
Pricing for The Urban Slide varies and depends mainly on two factors:
- How early a registration is made before the event begins – the earlier the registration, the more money is saved
- How many times one wants to go down the 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.
On Saturday, The Urban Slide in Phoenix will run from 12:00pm-6:30PM with the night session being from 8:00pm-10:00pm. On Sunday it goes from 10:00am-5:00pm.
