Slip on your Swimmers & Slide Through the Streets of Melb'
Remember the days when we were children and played on slip and slides. With rubbed down tummies and generally ending in a crash into our mother's rose garden bed - slip and slides were always great fun, who doesn't love a really good water slide.

Imagine an entire Street in your city converted into a huge water slide. This is what Slide The City is all about.

In Melbourne the length of Lansdowne street is being converted into a massive water slide of around 300metres - that's huge!

Imagine a slide where you can take to the streets of Melbourne in a rather unique manner.

For one day only on Sunday the 10th of January 2016.

You have 3 options for purchasing tickets:

You can go as a single slider where you will get a wristband, giving you one slide anytime during the day. You need to bring an inflatable item as you will not be allowed on the slide without one. If you forget it they also have some that you can purchase on the day
At the moment if you book you can apply for early bird registration of $15 instead of $20 per person.

From the 5th of December regular registration is $20pp and then from the 10th of January tickets become $25 pp.

If you prefer to upgrade you can choose the triple slider, which will give you 3 slides along with the rest and you will get a tube to ride on and a mouthguard.

These tickets are $35 early bird registration
40pp from the 5th of December and
45 pp from the 10th of January.

Why not go the whole hog and become an ultimate slider.
