Slide the City Launching 150 City Tour with World Record Slide in Florida

[quote]We spend so much time walking, running, or driving around our cities, but how many times have you been able to say you slid down your city streets?” — Slide the City Founder TR Gourley[/quote]

Salt Lake City, UT, USA — City streets will get a slippery makeover in more than 150 cities around the world when Slide the City goes on tour with 1,000+ feet of padded vinyl. Turning hills into water-sliding thrills is the goal of the event, which was created in an effort to get people outside, having fun, and connecting with their community.

Participants in Slide the City will ride inflatables down a 1,000-ft. water slide. This one-of-a-kind experience will help people “slide into summer,” while supporting a good cause. A portion of the proceeds of each event will benefit a local charity.

“We want to make a difference while we’re making memories,” event founder TR Gourley said.

The first event of its kind, Slide the City has seen massive growth since it started in 2014. This original concept went viral when the video was released, and this year promises to be bigger, better, and wetter.

“This will be one of the highlights of your year,” said Gourley “Get ready for the slide of your life!”

Slide the City will make its 2015 debut with a World Record Breaking event: longest slide and the most number of sliders, in West Palm Beach, FL on February 14th.

Each rider can purchase a one ride pass, three ride pass, or all-day pass. With over 150 events in the US and Canada, and more than 20 international locations beginning with Japan and Australia as early as March, water slide enthusiasts are sure to find a Slide the City event nearby.
