People of Mzanzi you are in for a treat this summer, with the mother of all slides coming to your city! This is a call to all adrenaline junkies and water lovers, to get ready for the 304-meter water slide that will be touring all major South African cities. Slide the City officially opens during our hot December month, so get your cozzie ready.
Safety, hygiene and water conservation
The organisers of Slide the City have taking all possible concerns that the public may have, into consideration and have come up with solutions. The slide uses a pump that will ensure that water is transported all the way back to the slide’s starting point and then re-used. There is also no need to be worried about germs because the pH levels will be regularly checked and maintained to keep bacteria at bay. And with regards to safety, there will be paramedics and security on standby.
Fun in the sun
The fun will start in December 2015 and end off in February 2016, there will be limited time to enjoy the mega slide, so you have to make the most of it. People from all over the country will be popping into the cities to have a run at the slide, as tourism spikes a hotel in hotel in Greenpoint or a B&B in PE, will be packed so it’s advisable to pre-book in advance. As food, music and fun activities will be on offer all day long, you can be sure that this event will knock your socks off. There will be no weight limit for the slide, but participants will need to be at least 1.2 meters tall to get on the slide.
