Going back to school does not have to mean that summer is over. On August 29 Tulsa will be playing host to an epic summer bash that promises, “live music, food, drinks, water, and of course the biggest slip and slide ever to hit asphalt.”
The thousand foot water slide will be located at 1500 S Main St., with four ways to experience the event.
If you want to be a “Single Slider” you will receive a wristband for one slide anytime during the day, a drawstring bag, temporary tattoo and a mouthguard to wear while sliding. However, you have to bring your own inflatable tube to slide, or buy one at the event.
Regular Registration is $20 and ends 8-22-15
Late Registration is $25 and ends 8-28-15
Day of Registration is $30
“Triple Sliders,” receive a wristband that allows them to slide three times throughout the day along with an inflatable tube, mouthguard, tattoo and drawstring bag.
Regular Registration is $40
Late Registration is $45
Day of Registration is $50
A Two Hour Unlimited Pass is also available and gives the slider full access to the slide between 9am – 11am. Only a limited number of these tickets will be released. Unlimited pass sliders also receive a drawstring bag, mouth guard, inflatable tube and a hat.
Regular Registration is $60
Late Registration is $65
Day of Registration is $70
Anyone over 16 can experience the event by volunteering as well. Slide the City, the organization responsible for the event, is accepting volunteers online.
Slide the City has done similar events across the U.S. and in Canada and China.
The purpose of the event, which initially seems counterintuitive, is to promote water conservation. At the end of the event all of the water used will get recycled back into the community and all participants are asked to sign a pledge to be more conservation conscious.
Slide the City will also be donating a portion of the profits from the event to Generosity.org, which is an organization working to provide clean drinking water in developing countries.
So, when you are sliding your way down one thousand feet of fun on your giant inflatable tube you can relax in the knowledge that you aren’t hurting the environment.
