The Giant Slip and Slide Experience: Fun for Everyone

The Giant Slip and Slide in Cornwall promises a splash-filled adventure that’s perfect for all ages. As you make your way up the slide with your inflatable tube, anticipation builds for the exhilarating ride ahead. Once you’re seated and ready, gravity takes over, propelling you down the slippery slope. The rush of water and the wind in your hair makes for an unforgettable experience that’ll have you laughing and screaming all the way down!

At 440 feet, this is currently the longest Slip ‘n Slide in the UK! That’s if you can make it to the end! For your best shot, I suggest squeezing as many people as possible onto the double ring for extra weight and speed!

Whether you’re a thrill-seeker or simply looking to enjoy a day of family fun, this Slip ‘n Slide delivers. Children and adults alike can revel in the joy of racing down the slide, making it a fantastic activity for groups, friends, and families.

Safety measures are in place to ensure a worry-free adventure, making it suitable for everyone to enjoy.

My Review of the Giant Slip and Slide Cornwall

We recently went as three adults and four kids to the Giant Slip and Slide in Cornwall and we had a blast!

The kids enjoyed it so much they asked if we could go again the next day!

This wasn’t quite possible as it is a little pricey to go so soon after, but it’s definitely worth the cost for the experience at least once in the summer. Next year we will definitely do another Slip ‘n Slide experience in Cornwall, if not twice in the summer holidays as we were all longing for more once our hour session was up!

The price was £12 per person and the experience is for one hour. However, you need to arrive 30 minutes before the session to check in, complete any waivers that have not already been completed online, hire equipment if needed (wetsuits), and watch the safety video if not already watched online.

It’s definitely worth the £12 each for the experience and to support a small local Cornish business, but this isn’t a pricepoint that we could take the kids to every day, much as they would like 😂

We also went with my sister-in-law and her children and they had just as much fun as us. With three slides and four independent kiddies (ages between 8 and 13), it was hard to keep an eye on everyone, but it was super safe and easy for the kids to run and get inflatables, then go up the stairs and down the slides themselves. Which they loved to do!

Even us adults were like big kids trying to get as many turns on the slide as we could, racing down on separate rings, or doubling up to try and reach the bottom of the slides! I didn’t manage it, but my sister-in-law and her kids managed to get to the bottom when going down together as a three!

I think the most I saw on the double rings was six people! They don’t have a limit on how many can squeeze on the rings, but it’s obviously at your own risk! Hence, signing disclaimers before!

It was honestly so much fun and everyone else around us was having the time of their lives too!

We are really looking forward to returning next year and this will definitely be an annual summer holiday tradition while we are in Cornwall.

In fact, just writing about it is making me want to go again. It’s a shame it’s over for the season now, but we’ll be back as happy customers next year.
