Ryde Slide is back and bigger than ever! This summer the Ryde Slide returns! This year in July the 200 metre thrill seekers’ delight, an exhilarating giant inflatable water slide, will arrive in Ryde’s main shopping street.

Islanders and visitors will get the chance to take part in this unique community event whilst raising money for local charities. The event will run from 10:00am – 6:00pm and is located on Union Street, Ryde. The slide starts half way down the hill and is approximately outside of the Black Sheep bar. (see map as a guide) Tickets are just £10 each (+VAT and fees) and places are strictly limited, so make sure you book your tickets today. Sorry if you or your child are under 4ft you will not be able to slide this year due to Health & Safety. Click Here for Ticket Information
