Bring the Speed: City Block-Long Slip-n-Slide

slide-front_2901121cWhat do you do when you have an excess of hay bales, tarps, and dish soap? Make a giant slip-n-slide obviously.

A steep city street was transformed into a water slide made of hay bales and tarpaulin as part of an interactive art project.

Park Street in Bristol was cleared of traffic and turned into a giant free ride.

Residents were able to hurtle down the historic road – a seven per cent slope – on inflatable lilos on tarpaulin sheet lubricated with soapy water.

I’m pretty bummed I missed this one. Water slides are one of those enjoyable activities you never grow out of.
