'World's Largest' Slip N Side Festival Has Opened And Spans 1.5 Miles
| Last updated
The 'world's largest' slip 'n' slide festival has opened for thrill-seeking adrenaline junkies, who can whizz their way down a mountain along a 1.5-mile course.
The festival, which kicked off last Friday (16 July), bills itself as the world's 'longest and biggest inflatable slip n' slide festival'.
While the resort plays host to skiiers in the winter months, as temperatures rise and snow melts the site becomes perfect for those hoping to race down the hillside in another way - cooling off from the summer sun as they speed along the watery track.
The 'epic tubing experience' allows people to grab a rubber ring or lilo and launch themselves down the travelling course, which spans 1.5 miles and features more than 20 routes.
Punters are transported up the mountain on ski lifts and stand-on conveyors, meaning you won't have to waste all your energy by trudging up the hill.
The event runs all summer until 6 September, with tickets costing $34.99 (£25) for a two-hour window, with prices including transport up the mountain.
The festival also offers family four-pack passes, along with discounted group packages.
The website says: "Slide The Slopes is the longest and biggest inflatable slip n' slide festival in the world. With over a mile of slides, everyone is sure to have a fabulous time!
