What's a Brisbanite to do when they want to go slipping and sliding in a big way? Head to Wet 'n' Wild on the coast? Fashion their own in the backyard? Reminisce about the demolished-but-not-forgotten Amazons? With previous attempts to bring this type of giant, watery, inflatable attraction to town falling short, they've been the options so far. That was before Slideapalooza was born.
First slated for November 2017 but now taking place on January 13 to 14 and again on January 19 to 21, this slip 'n' slide to end all slip 'n' slides will roll out its plastic at Sirromet Winery. If you're thinking what we're thinking, yes that does mean alcohol is involved — plus food, because you'll need to keep your energy up if you're getting wet and watery, and non-boozy beverages as well.
Now, the numbers game. There'll be over a kilometre of inflatable slides just for single sliders, including two super sky-high options to really get you soaring. And, there'll also be a six-lane behemoth for group sliding, which spans the length of a footy field. Tickets cost $59 for adults, with morning (9am to 11.30am), lunch (11.30am to 2pm) and afternoon (2pm to 4.30pm) sessions available on each day.
