How It Works

Step 1: Buy your ticket and choose your two-hour timeslot.

Step 2: Show up at the event in your swimsuit or some combination of water-friendly clothes and footwear.

Step 3: Be hurled down a 1,000-foot slip and slide on an inner tube.

Step 4: Repeat.

The real question is, what kind of slider will you be? Are you going to gear up and record your trip every step of the way?

Are you going to go down with your bros and try to shove your way to the front?

Are you going to take your BFF and be laughing the whole way down?

Don't worry if you fall off your tube; there are plenty of staff members there to help you.

Know Before You Go

  • Pets are not allowed within 20 feet of the slide, so keep your pooches at home.
  • No refunds will be issued for this event, and the organizers reserve the right to cancel the event for inclement weather.
  • People with tickets for the last timeslot must be in line by 6 p.m.
  • Organizers reserve the right to eject guests who are not following the event guidelines – don't be that guy!

Bottom line, this is the place to be this hot, hot summer in Fredericksburg! Get your tickets soon – the choice timeslots tend to sell out.
