Slide the City

That huge slip and slide is coming to Toronto in July

A few months ago we speculated that a huge slip and slide party was coming to Toronto this summer. The good news is we were right about that, but it might be useful to exercise some caution before getting too excited. Registration for the local edition of Slide the City opens today, though the location suggests it won't be an entirely urban experience.

Slide the City will bring a 1,000 foot slip and slide to Downsview Park on July 18 and 19. How they're going to elevate this thing to replicate the thrilling ride depicted in photos on their website, I have no idea -- but at least this isn't another catfish Facebook event. Or is it? Slide the City is indeed real, but it ain't quite as cool as was promised. Oops.

What would Nev do?
