2015-10-12 10:00

Cape Town - Slide Jozi brings a first of its kind fun day to Sandton which will cater to adults and kids (6 years of age and older).

This family day will give fun seekers a 300m slide down West Street with the city's concrete landscape as the setting for this adventurous ride. The Slide will start at the top of West Street heading towards Rivonia road and come to an end by safely stopping in a pool of water.

Sliding times will be broken down in four slots allowing people to the pick the time slot they would like to experience the slide of their life and buy tickets accordingly.

Tickets will also be on sale for unlimited slides throughout the day and there will be spectator tickets on sale for the few who prefer not to brave the slide.

Slide Jozi has made sure everyone is looked after and will also host an entertainment section with live music, a beer garden (over 18s only) and a food court.

The Live Entertainment will be made up of TiMO ODV, HouseHold Funk, Sisco Umlambo, Apollo, Shorty on SAX, Kyle Cassim, Mark Stent, Vin Groovin, DJ JC and Felix Brendel.
