Summer technically isn’t here yet, but it’s boiling out there, kiddies.
So it's worth nothing that, in a few weeks, Atlantans will be able to beat the heat in the heart of the city — in a way that involves water, gravity, and presumably fun.
Utah-based entertainment company Slide the City will be bringing their massive water slide to downtown June 25. Because, really, is there a better way to cool off from the oppressive summer heat in Atlanta than with a 1000-foot-long Slip'N Slide?
The slide will be set up at Centennial Olympic Park Drive and Andrew Young International Bouleavard, adjacent to the Dome-GWCC-Philips Arena MARTA station. There are three time slots available to keep lines down, with three runs on the slide costing up to $35. Be warned that prices will go up the day before the event.
Some proceeds go to Hands on Atlanta.
