There's a Ski Jump Waterslide In Park City and You Need To Go Down ItBy: Rich Tubman and Grant Marek
According to a recent poll on pollsitethatistotallyrealnoneedtocheck.com, 100% of Americans think winter-time ski jumps should be turned into summer-time ski jump waterslides.
And that undeniable piece of statistical data is exactly why the folks at Park City's Utah Olympic Park decided to do exactly that at Slip 'N Soar.
Now in its third year, Slip 'N Soar turns a ramp that's normally reserved for aerial skiing -- you know, the one where guys and girls hit a 20-foot ski jump at 40mph, launching 60 feet off the ground, busting out some casual triple backflips, and then landing on a 39-degree slope -- into what just might be the world's single greatest waterslide.
Opening up the venue to anyone with a $65 ticket, Slip 'N Soar gives mere mortals the chance to slide down any of four Olympic ramps on their backs and bellies, before hitting a lip, launching 60 feet into the air, and then into an aerated pool that helps break the water when you hit it.
For the first time ever, the event will be hosted THREE times in 2017: June 24, July 4, and August 19.
The Fourth of July event will also be their first-ever night time event, an 18-and-up affair that'll cost an extra $10.
Oh and TICKETS GO ON SALE ON MONDAY, MAY 15 AND WILL SELL OUT IN LIKE ONE SECOND SO BE READY YOU GUYS.
