SINGAPORE - The international mega-slide event Slide The City will be held in Singapore from Nov 25 to 27.

Its location has not been revealed but event management company Heroes from Brunei has confirmed the date on Facebook for Slide The City Singapore, a family-friendly water-themed party featuring a 1,000-feet (305m) slide. Judging from the organiser's promotional videos, the event could take place in the Marina Bay area.

Stretching over a space about the size of three football fields, the slide is made of vinyl and will be transported here from the United States, where Slide The City originated. The slide has since been making waves in other parts of the world including Canada, Australia, Japan, Hong Kong and Malaysia.

Heroes' founder Aaron Goh tells The Straits Times that the slide will have three lanes and participants will have to be at least 1.07m tall.
