An enormous water slide the length of three football pitches is coming to Manchester this summer.

The 1,000ft inflatable slide will be coming to Heaton Park, according to organisers Slide the City on Saturday July 18, 2015.

The giant flume has caused a sensation in other parts of the UK where it has attracted hordes of thrillseekers.

Organisers say: “Slide the City is a family friendly slip-and-slide water party event.

“There will be live music, food, drinks, water, and of course the biggest slip-and-slide that you’ve ever seen.

“Don’t worry, we’ve got it padded. This slide’s got more cushion than your grandpa’s orthopedic shoes.

“Make sure to bring your water buckets, floaties, and water guns (non-realistic of course), to squirt, spray, splash, and get all attending soaked.”

Anyone over the age of five will be able to use the slide, with the price starting at £10 for a single ride, £20 for three rides, and £35 for unlimited use of the slide for an hour before it opens, and an hour after it closes.

Inflatable tubes to ride on are provided, or riders can bring their own.
