Take a Ride Down Memory Lane: 1,000-Foot Slip-and-Slide Coming to Toronto

If you’re a born and bred Canadian, you most likely have memories of spending your summer vacations setting up slip-and-slides and flinging your body down the slick plastic runway on its way to becoming tangled mess in the grass a few metres away.

But as we got older, those carefree days became few and far between.

This summer, however, Toronto millennials can take a ride down memory lane as Slide the City sets up a 1,000-foot slip-and-slide, which is more than three football fields long to put your old Crocodile Mile to serious shame.

Last summer hundreds of Torontonians made their way to Downsview Park and slid down the world’s longest outdoor slide, which organizers promise has “more cushion than your grandpa’s orthopaedic sneakers.”

Early bird registration tickets cost between $10-45 depending on which slide you choose — the Single Slider, the Triple Slide, or the Ultimate Slider.

So mark your calendars for July 16th, grab a pretzel-shaped pool floatie, and be prepared to feel super nostalgic.
