What the massive slip and slide looked like in Toronto

Slide the City finally planted its 1,000-foot water slide in Downsview Park this weekend in what might have been the best weather imaginable for such an event. Despite the hour-long lineup in 30-degree heat, the slippery 90-second ride was a worthy way to spend the first real heat wave of the summer. Everyone got impatient in line before blissfully drenching themselves on the giant slip and slide.
