Participants just got a small glimpse of the event when Slide the City came to Decatur in June

This summer, thousands of sliders have rediscovered their inner child as they slip down 1,000 ft. of slick vinyl. In June, Slide the City Decatur was cut short due to a water main break in the area. Organizers are excited to announce that their waterslide will hit the streets of Decatur again on September 12.

“Participants just got a small glimpse of the event when Slide the City came to Decatur in June. The slide was only open for three hours before we had to shut down,” said Slide the City spokeswoman Amy Gessel. “We cannot wait to come back and give Georgians the slide of their lives.”

Thousands of participants have experienced Slide the City this summer as the Guinness World Record-breaking slide toured the country. On Monday, additional Single and Triple Slider Passes will be released for the once sold-out Decatur slide. “We are excited that even more sliders will be able to speed down three city blocks at this one-of-a-kind water event,” said Gessel.

Sliding starts at 10 a.m. Participants can purchase a Single or Triple Slider Pass online at ( Pricing starts at $20.

Those over 5 years of age and at least 46 inches tall are welcome to slide! Visit the Slide the City Facebook to see what fans have to say ( or visit ( for more information about Slide the City Decatur.
