Slip and slide you way across downtown Calgary this summer with a 1000-foot vinyl slide!

Nothing says summer like rocketing yourself down 1000-feet of water logged vinyl and though a handful of downtown Calgary city blocks. Slide the City is invading the Stamped City, so grab your bathing suit and your inner tube and make your weekday commute to work a whole lot more fun! 

Slide the City has been invading North America and cooling down the overheating masses with their awesome, gigantic slip-and-slide that spans… wait for it, the length of over 3 football fields. In other words, you and your friends are going to get to propel yourselves like a tiny human cannonball down some of the steepest streets in Calgary this summer! Don’t worry, because unlike that half-rigged slip-and-slide you set up in your backyard as a kid, this one’s totally safe. 


“Usain Bolt will be green with envy once he sees how fast you can cover that much ground. Oh and in case you were wondering, our slide was made right here in the good ole US of A and travels with us throughout the country. We like to think of ourselves as carney workers, without the mullets and the missing teeth. Slide the City is a family friendly slip-and-slide water party event. There will be live music, food, drinks, water, and of course the biggest slip and slide ever to hit asphalt. Don’t worry, we’ve got it padded.This slide’s got more cushion than your grandpa’s orthopedic sneakers.” - Slide the City

The big green slide’s been busy solving the summer heat problem in cities like Toronto, Salt Lake, West Palm Beach, and pretty much anywhere else that you can imagine. 


The next stop for Slide the City will be happening on August 1-2 in Calgary, Alberta, right through the middle of downtown. After all the fun, grab some lunch at the Higher Ground, and don’t forget to see the Calgary Tower, and Prince's Island Park while you’re at it! If you’re headed to Calgary this August make sure to grab some tickets for Slide the City. When else are you going to be able to cruse down 10th street on the world’s largest slip-and-slide?!
