I am excited to share with you that Slide the City Malaysia is back, and it will be for a month-long… so you can Slip n’ Slide every weekend on Fridays (5pm-12am), Saturdays and Sundays (9am-12am) from September 30th – October 29th, 2017 at Setia City Convention Centre in Setia Alam. Isn’t that just so exciting.. I know I am excited. My mini me and I were there for the first Slip n’ Slide back in 2015 which was held in Putrajaya…
In case you somehow missed it, Slide the City is a global phenomenon that brings a gigantic slip n’ slide onto city streets and it has invaded major cities such as United States, Columbia, Canada, United Kingdom, Korea, Japan, Brunei, Hong Kong, Macau, China, Taiwan and many more.
This edition of Slide the City is supported by Tourism Selangor with their official sponsors being Glinter, GoPro, Pico Design, Kose (Malaysia) and Warrior….
Monkey Theory Sdn. Bhd. first brought the iconic slide to Malaysia in December 2015 and the slide has since travelled across Malaysia and landed in states such as Penang, Melaka, Kuantan and Johor Bahru.
“We heard what our fans had to say and we are now extending the sliding days from only one weekend to a month long event! We want everyone to have the opportunity to experience the slide at least once in their lives! So, just put on your sunscreens and grab your best summer outfit and speed down this gigantic slip n’ slide for a family fun day in the sun” said Mr Leong Delon, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Monkey Theory Sdn. Bhd., the organisers of Slide the City Malaysia.
Although it is a fun family-oriented event within a carnival-like atmosphere, Slide the City Malaysia also champions a more serious, compassionate cause. A portion of the sales proceeds will be channelled towards the National Kidney Foundation of Malaysia (NKF Malaysia) to support patients suffering from kidney disease. Slide the City Malaysia also aims to raise awareness of obesity, targeting a healthy lifestyle in a fun and engaging event in which the whole family can participate.
Besides experiencing the premium slide, visitors will also get to participate in the carnival-like atmosphere with many other activities which will take place simultaneously. The event will feature live music, and carnival games such as the Rodeo Bull, Dunking Game, Bungee Run, and Gladiator Joust. There will also be a host of other activities set to offer fun for the whole family, and visitors will also be invited to partake in the many food offerings of over 15 food trucks in presence.
“Slide the City is also proud to partner with Wahoo Events for their Shark Savers campaign. This is a dear cause to us as we pledge to say NO to the consumption of shark fins. As organisers of Slide the City, not only are we committed to this campaign, we are also firm believers that as responsible citizens of the world, we should do our part in helping spread awareness to preserve our natural resources for future generations. In relation to this, we would also like to encourage everyone to pledge for this cause and say NO to shark fins and any shark related products sold in the market.” Delon continues.
Regular and VIP tickets each are priced from as low as RM29 and RM86. Tickets can also be bought online at www.slidethecity.asia and onsite on event day. They will also be available at selected 7-Eleven stores in Penang Island, Selangor and within the Klang Valley starting from the 3rd week of September 2017 onwards.
So see you there… I am so gonna be there with my little girl….
