Wightlink Ryde Slide

Wightlink Ryde Slide is back for summer 2018! Ryde’s main shopping street will be adorned with a 200-metre inflatable water slide, to the delight of thrill seekers everywhere. Sliders will be racing down the hill at speed, with local firemen on hand to boost you along with a water blast.

Now in its fourth year, this is a popular, family-oriented event and the funds raised will be going to local charities.

Tickets are available from rydeslide.uk. Places are limited, so make sure you book your tickets well in advance, selecting the hour time slot you would like to slide.

Wightlink can get you from Portsmouth Harbour straight into the action at Ryde Pier Head in just 22 minutes. Make the most of our early bird offer below, with tickets from just £15, and book today.
