Why have fun without giving back? At Slide the City partner with a local charity for every event. 

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.

Slide The City Water Conservation Recycling Efforts

Join Slide the City and the City of Reno in a water recycling event. Read below and you will learn how Slide the City is going to recycle water on Aug 22-23 and how you too can pledge to recycle and conserve water.

We take water shortages seriously and are working with Reno City officials to recycle all the water we use. The slide is designed to recirculate water throughout the day which minimizes water use. Approximately 12,000 -16,000 gallons of water is typically circulated in a day. At the end of the event, the water used in the slide will be treated and then recycled back into the community. We will be putting it in the lake at Lake Park following the event.  

What can you do? Glad you asked. When you register for Slide the City Reno you will be asked to make a pledge to recycle and conserve. Here are ways you can recycle and conserve. 

  • Pre soak your pans instead of letting water run while you scape and clean
  • Check faucets and pipes for leaks - A small drip from a worn faucet washer can waste 20 gallons of water per day. Larger leaks can waste hundreds of gallons.
  • Take shorter showers. One way to cut down on water use is to turn off the shower after soaping up, then turn it back on to rinse. A four-minute shower uses approximately 20 to 40 gallons of water.
  • Don't let the faucet run while you clean vegetables. Just rinse them in a stoppered sink or a pan of clean water
  • Keep a bottle of drinking water in the fridge. Running tap water to cool it off for drinking water is wasteful. Store drinking water in the fridge in a safe drinking bottle.
  • Put a layer of mulch around trees and plants. Mulch will slow evaporation of moisture while discouraging weed growth. Adding 2 - 4 inches of organic material such as compost or bark mulch will increase the ability of the soil to retain moisture.
  • Water during the early parts of the day; avoid watering when it's windy
    Early morning is generally better than dusk since it helps prevent the growth of fungus. Early watering, and late watering, also reduce water loss to evaporation.
  • Use a broom, not a hose, to clean driveways and sidewalks
  • Operate automatic dishwashers and clothes washers only when they are fully loaded or properly set the water level for the size of load you are using
  • Do not use running water to thaw meat or other frozen foods. Defrost food overnight in the refrigerator or by using the defrost setting on your microwave
