This 300-meter water slide is set to unfold in Japan this Golden Week

Many of you might have fond memories of summers spent cooling off on a backyard water slide (and possibly not-so-fond memories of friction burns). But surely a few daredevils were always left wondering, “Is that it?” as they landed in the splash pool. Enter Slide the City, the ultimate in childhood wish-fulfillment. The people of Japan will soon have a chance to experience the enormous water slide for themselves when it opens on Golden Week, a run of consecutive public holidays which this year begins on April 29.

As seen in the screenshot above, the slide spans at least a couple of blocks, measuring a whopping 300 meters, and makes good on its name by running through the heart of various urban locations. As such, it’s not hard to see why the July 2014 unveiling in Salt Lake City was such a success, with some 6,000 people participating in the event.
