This gigantic slippery surface promises participants the “slide of their lives”

Slide the City

How many times have you been able to say you slid down your city streets?

June 10, 2015 – Winter is finally over and on August 15, Slide the City™ is bringing their thousand-foot slide to Colorado Springs. Families and friends can soak up the sun while speeding down this massive three-lane slide on inner tubes. This one-of-a-kind event encourages members of the community to get outside and stay active during the warm summer months.

“We spend so much time walking, running and driving around our cities,” said Slide the City™ event director TR Gourley. “But how many times have you been able to say you slid down your city streets?”

Cresta Road will be transformed into a water-lover’s oasis as participants ride inflatables down this giant slide, which spans three city blocks. With music, local vendors, and giveaways, this family-friendly event promises to be a highlight of the summer. Event organizers anticipate that thousands will come to "slide into summer."

A portion of the event proceeds will be donated to the charity UpaDowna. This organization’s mission is to provide access to outdoor adventures for all through events and programs that empower individuals, create healthier communities, and foster a respect for the environment.

“We want to make a difference while we’re making memories,” Gourley said. “We are excited to be working with UpaDowna in Colorado Springs.”

Participants can purchase a one, three or unlimited slide pass, and are encouraged to sign up before June 27 to take advantage of the Early Bird Discount. Pricing Starts at $13.

All those over five years old and 46in tall are welcome to slide! Visit for more information about dates and locations or checkout what fans have to say on the Slide the City™ Facebook page at
