Some venues will have change rooms available however some will not so we suggest being prepared for either scenario. Your best bet would be to show up to the event wearing what you will slide down the slide in and bring a change of clothes for after your slide. Bring some $$ for food, drinks and some cool swag at our store.

I’m not a big fan of waiting in line, when should I attend?
Unfortunately the Urban Slide will be busy throughout the full day, however your best bet to wait in the smallest lines would be at the very beginning and the very end. You can expect heavy traffic around 12-3pm, in other words, the middle of the day.
Inflation Station Optional!
The Inflation Station is an optional station; it is not mandatory to blow up your tube or surfboard at this station. We offer up the Free Inflation Station Service to help people with respiratory issues or asthma, elderly or families with little lungs, who may not be able to blow up the tube on their own. We encourage you to use your own lung power. It takes approx 2 minutes to inflate one of our tubes, so please feel free to blow up on your own tube and share your air with others ;-)
Can I bring my own food?
Yes you can bring your own food, but we will have food available from one of our vendors too. Alcoholic beverages are not permitted. We will have a licensed area on site where you can enjoy a cold one. There is no eating or drinking while simultaneously going down the slide.
I like going fast down a slip and slide, can I bring soap to boost my speed?
No you cannot bring your own soap, as we cannot know which soap you use we cannot keep you safe if you coat your tube in it. We will have products to make you go faster so do not bring your own, anyone seen using outside soap will be asked to leave and no refunds would be available.
