‘SLIDE THE CITY’ MAKES A COMEBACK
Event to take place in Setia City Convention Centre between Sept 30 and Oct 29
BE prepared for the slipand-slide event of the year, as Slide the City returns to our shores. The month-long event will take place between Sept 30 and Oct 29 at the Setia City Convention Centre in Shah Alam, near, here.
Event organiser Monkey Theory Sdn Bhd chief executive officer Leong Delon said it expected 70,000 people to attend the fun-filled event.
He said the figure was based on the response Slide the City had garnered when it was held in Putrajaya in 2015.
“It started as a weekend event in December 2015, where Slide the City toured Malaysia at Putrajaya, Penang, Melaka, Kuantan and Johor Baru. Many participants were raving about it.
“With this year’s event, hopefully more people can experience the gigantic slide and spend time with their families.
“There will also be other activities, games and food trucks,” Leong said.
“Slide the City is the first of its kind, which is open from evening to midnight, so that participants can spend more time on the slide. On Fridays it will be open from 5pm to 12am, and during the weekends it will open from 9am to midnight.”
Leong said a portion of proceeds from ticket sales would donated to the National Kidney Foundation of Malaysia (NKF), with the hope of raising awareness about healthy living.
For those who want an overall experience of the event, they can purchase VIP tickets priced from RM86 onwards.
It entitles the ticket-holder access to the express lane for the slide, free float tube, as well as all other activities and is inclusive of a free drink.
Participants can purchase regular tickets priced from RM29, available online at slidethecity.asia or at the venue itself and at selected 7-Eleven outlets.
Slide the City is a collaboration between Monkey Theory, SP Setia, Media Prima Bhd, GoPro Inc, Glinter, Pico Design, Kose (Malaysia), AirAsia Big, Haribo and Warrior, and is endorsed by Tourism Selangor.
The event also partners Wahoo Events for the Shark Savers campaign — to stop the consumption of shark fins.
