Slide Marble Falls is 850 feet of fun; buy tickets now
It's 850 feet of slippery fun, and it's coming to Marble Falls on Father's Day weekend.
Slide Marble Falls is Saturday, June 15, down Third Street. The Marble Falls/Lake LBJ Chamber of Commerce has teamed up with Urban Slide to set up a giant waterslide in downtown for family-friendly fun from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., ending with a laser light show. The event will be held in conjunction with Market Day on Main.
The super slide features three lanes to allow for a good flow of riders. Tickets are available now.
The event is set up in two-hour waves: 10 a.m.-noon, noon-2 p.m., 2-4 p.m., 4-6 p.m., 6-8 p.m., and 8-10 p.m. You can purchase tickets for a two-hour wave for $20 each and slide as many times as you want during that time period.
All-day passes are $40 for an individual or $140 for a family pack of four ($35 each). For bigger families, additional tickets are $35 as well.
Though lines should move quickly, you can skip to the start with the Slide Fast Pass — good all day — for $50 a person or $180 for a family pack of four ($45 each).
Sliders must be ages 5 and older and over 46 inches tall. You also must be able to personally walk up 40-foot-tall stairs to get to the top of the slide.
Urban Slide organizers recommend booking the earlier or later waves for the shortest lines.
Purchase tickets through the chamber’s Slide Marble Falls page. Chamber Executive Director Jarrod Metzger said people will be able to purchase tickets the day of the event as long as it hasn’t sold out. If you get to Slide Marble Falls and want to upgrade your tickets, you can do so that day as long as the option is still available.
A tube is included in the purchase price of a wristband.
Volunteers are needed and may register online. Volunteers will get a free $20 two-hour wave wristband for helping. Call the chamber at (830) 693-2815 for more information.
