Slide the City organizers will open registration this week April 29 for their June 6 event in Fort Mill, but they don’t expect it to be open long.
A week prior to registration opening, the event had 5,000 people on the waiting list.
“Our cap is at 6,000 people,” said Katelin Goings, event spokesperson.
Slide the City expects a sellout. The group will bring a 1,000-foot padded water slide to A.O. Jones Boulevard. Events include live music, food and drinks for sale. Riders can purchase single or up to unlimited rides.
The company is giving away 10 single slider entries to the first 10 nonprofits to contact them, which can be used for raffles, online giveaways and more.
The event is expected to draw heavily from the Charlotte market, as Fort Mill will have the closest event this year. Registration opens at 9 a.m. Wednesday, April 29.
“We can’t wait to bring our party to Fort Mill,” said event director Brad Behle.
