Print and bring your confirmation email or your photo ID. One person can pick up all the packets for your group (friends or family) just bring their printed confirmation email with you. You can also pick up packets on event day, but we do experience LONG lines that can be up to an hour long so make sure you come 1-1.5 hours before your slide time. 

*If your friends or family still need tickets they can purchase them HERE or at packet pick up. Unlimited passes are soldout, we still have Triple and Single Slider passes available.

WAVE TIMES 
You will receive a wristband that will only allow you to slide during the set hours for your ticket type. Wave times are as follows: 

  • Unlimited ONLY: 11am - Noon  
  • Open Slide (Single, Triple, Unlimited): Noon - 5pm
  • Unlimited ONLY: 5pm - 6pm. 

The busiest hours are Noon - 2pm, lines can be 45mins - 1 hr long during this time. If you are an Unlimited Slider this is a great time to go grab some food and come back to slide your heart out without as long of lines. If you are a Single Slider you may want to come between 2pm - 4pm for shorter lines. 

What you need to know for EVENT DAY:

Parking: Parking will be $5 in the Civic Auditorium and Coliseum parking garages. You can also park downtown for free and walk across to the Auditorium. 

Sliding: For maximum speed and safety all sliders must have an inflatable tube to ride on. If you purchased a Triple or Unlimited ticket then a tube is included. If you purchased a Single Slider ticket you will need to bring your own tube or purchase one at the event. Do not bring a rubber tube as they stick to the slide and your sliding experience will be less then desirable. 


Food: We will have local food vendors to replenish you after sliding. Rita's Market Square location will have a cart on site selling Italian ice, as well as ice cream, bbq, and other vendors. They will accept cash or credit card. 

Clothing / Shoes: Come ready to slide in swim appropriate clothing. NO exposed zippers, rivets, or things on your clothing that can catch or rip the slide. Flip flops, water shoes, and tennis shoes are all allowed on the slide. NO cleats, boots, or anything that could damage to the slide. There are no lockers or bag check, so only bring stuff you can carry or leave on the sidelines. 

Rules: Children must be 46" tall and 5 years old to slide, NO EXCEPTIONS. No lap riding or sharing an inflatable, each slider must be on their own tube/inflatable. No running or standing on the slide. We reserve the right to remove anyone from the slide that is not obeying the posted rules, putting themselves or others in danger, or doing something that could damage the slide. Your will lose your wristband and any slides you have remaining, no refunds will be given. Please be kind and courteous to other sliders and those around you.  


What to expect on your big day
Bikes, bussing, public transportation, and carpooling are encouraged. If you must bring your car, be prepared to walk a short distance from the event. We can't have cars near the Slide now can we?

Before you jump on the Slide, head to the registration tent to check-in and pick up your goodies.  Based on what you registered for, you will receive a wristband which gives you access to ride the Slide. Hang onto your wristband or you won't be able to ride!  For maximum speed and safety all sliders must have an inflatable tube to ride.  Remember to grab your friends, your swimsuit, and your signed waiver and you'll be ready to Slide the City.

You're more than welcome to line up ahead of time but the water doesn't start to flow until the specified start time. We accept the last slider in line 30 minutes before the Slide closes. The earlier you come, the more you'll be able to Slide the City.

If there is a little rain it only means there will be more water on the Slide and less people cranky about getting squirted with your new water gun. And besides, who wouldn’t want to dance in the rain, slide in the rain, and bring someone to kiss in the rain.

Embrace your inner child and get ready for the slide of your life! Slide the City is bringing the biggest water party of the summer to your city. Grab your swimsuit and speed down this one of a kind 1000ft slip and slide. There will be music, dancing, food, drinks, and even some swag for sale so you can soak up the sun in style.

Why have fun without giving back? We have partnered with East Tennesee Children's Hostpital in Knoxville.
