We heard rumors about this months ago, and now it seems those rumors are true. The world's longest travelling water slide, over 1,000 feet, will take over an entire Lubbock block in July.

The "Block Party" will take over East Broadway by Mackenzie park. You know, where it goes downhill into the canyon. This is going to be so uber-rad!

Here's how it works:

You’ll get a wristband that gives you three slides during the wave time you choose. You’ll also receive a tube, a mouth guard, and a drawstring bag. When purchasing your ticket you will select a 2-hour wave time in which to slide. Be sure to arrive before the wave time starts so you can get all of your slides.

There are also multiple levels of slider. You can slide once, three times, or as many times as you can slide all day. The "All-Day Slider" package includes swag including a drawstring bag, a mouth guard, an inflatable tube, a hat and a t-shirt.

Early registration is on right now, and as always prices go up the longer you wait.
