Victoria buzz has posted about the 1000 foot slip-and-slide possibly coming to Vancouver Island several times over the past 6 months on our Facebook page, and every time we do, it draws tons of excitement from all over Vancouver Island. CTV Vancouver Island is now reporting the first ever “Slide The City” on Vancouver Island will likely be happing in Nanaimo this summer. The people behind the giant 300 metre slip-n-slide street party confirm with CTV News they are in negotiations with the harbour city.
Slide The City is coming to Canada for the first time this year, and had been eyeing possible island sites in Courtenay, Comox, Nanaimo, and Victoria. Tickets to slide could range from $15-60.
It is anyone’s guess where such a 1,000 foot (305 metre) long slide, equivalent to the length of three FIFA soccer fields, could be located. Such a street would also need to be on a hill and within a centralized location near public transit.
Make sure to get added the Slide The City mailing list for updates.
