Cape Town Just Became Cooler! Plans to Get a 300m Long Water Slide in Summer!

Just when we thought it was impossible for Cape Town to get any trendier, the Mother City has upped her game by planning on bringing a 300m water slide to the streets!

When will you be able to join in on the jol? Well, plans are being implemented for this summer (December 2015 – February 2016).

Slide The City is one of the longest commercial water slides in the world! The slide will run cross three lanes and it will take less than a minute to reach the 26m big pool at the end. But what about the rough gravel, you ask? They have 840 mattresses which they use to ensure a smooth ride, so you won’t have to worry about nasty bumps and bruises as an accessory to your summer body. But where will this be happening? We are going to have to wait for 1 September for that to be announced, unfortunately. Tickets are not on sale yet, but you can go on to the waiting list here.

“This is the first time that a slide of this size has been brought to Africa and we’re very excited to be the official and exclusive franchise holder of these events,” says Minette Ferreira, GM of Weekly Magazines at Media24. “What better way to have fun this summer than sliding through our most wonderful cities! Slide The City has seen massive growth since it started in 2014 and we have no doubt it will do the same here in Africa.”

Check out the videos and make sure you get to Cape Town this summer, otherwise the doctor will have to prescribe some heavy medication for some serious FOMO.
