This Huge 1,000 Foot Waterslide Is Coming To Pennsylvania This Summer… And It’s Awesome

Summer is the season of staying cool and having fun, and that’s just what the Utah-based company, Slide the City, has set out to accomplish. Their massive, traveling slip ‘n slide will be touring the United States this summer. It spans the length of over three football fields– not only that, but it’s two-way so that riders can fly all the way down, and then back again.

The Slide the City website promises that the slide will make its way to nine different Pennsylvania cities this summer– Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Allentown, Reading, State College, Scranton, Harrisburg, Lancaster, and Waterford– so the unique amusement is guaranteed at a location near you.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:


Grab your inflatables, your water guns, your bathing suits and your friends, siblings, kids, or grandkids– anyone over 46 inches tall or 5 years of age can ride.  Prices range from $15- $60 depending on how early you sign up and how many rides you want– as you could imagine, signing up early is best, so if you’re interested you’ll want to rally your friends and head to their website soon to register or to sign up for the waitlist.

Slide the City is dedicated to wasting as little water as possible, which is why the 12,000- 15,000 gallons of water used for the event are de-clorinated and recycled in whatever way the local community could use. Little water is lost during the actual slipping and sliding because the slide is a closed system. Check out the video below to watch the promo.
