‘World’s longest inflatable slip ‘n’ slide’ glides into Texas this summer

Houston Chron – Move over Schlitterbahn, there’s a new water park in town. On Thursday, June 10, Slide the Slopes, an inflatable water and tubing course, opens in New Braunfels, just in time for summer fun (and heat).

The new attraction, which boasts to be the “longest and biggest inflatable slip and slide festival in the world,” is located at the Texas Ski Resort 6700 I-35 in New Braunfels through September 10.

According to its website, Slide the Slopes converted a ski hill into a three-mile inflatable water course, allowing visitors to “tube” their way down.

In an interview with the San Antonio Business Journal, owner Ryan Davis described the experience as a “variety of courses of various lengths.”

“It’s the ideal vacation or staycation experience, offering a twist on traditional tubing and water park options,” Davis told SABJ.

Do note, shoes are required, so make sure to wear something comfortable that can get wet. (And no boots with hooks or heels since they can pop the slides.) Though there is no age requirement, riders must be 44 inches, according to the Slide the Slopes website.

General admission tickets begin at $24.99 and $19.99 for kids ages 4 to 11 and military. Group and family discounts are also available. Each ticket guarantees two hours of slide time.
