Giant Ice Slide - School Holiday Fun
Welcoming more than 11,000 sliders last year, the giant icy slip-slide has become a must-see and do activity for Melbourne locals and visitors and is this year set to be bigger and better than ever.
From July 1 – July 16, the Southbank waterfront activation will feature a mammoth 36-metre long, four-metre high ice slide complete with imported Canadian inflatable ice tubes and specially designed lanes of two for punters to glide down on.
Taking three days to erect using a fine misting system at -12 degrees, Melbourne’s first and only giant ice slide is the perfect way to soak up the winter atmosphere.
Open daily from 10am until late, with prices starting at $12 for three ice slides or $20 for six slides, kids will be vying for a turn to race down the mega ice slide these school holidays.
To add to the winter fun, all patrons of the giant ice slide will be offered discounted admission at both Eureka Skydeck and Federation Square’s riverside ice rink.
A portion of the funds will go to not-for-profit organisation Variety: The Children’s Charity. For more information visit www.eurekaskydeck.melbourne.
Tickets must be purchased in person from the box office on the Southbank spillway, once the attractions open.
About Eureka Skydeck: Eureka Skydeck is the highest public vantage point in the Southern Hemisphere. Located on the 88th floor of Eureka Tower, the observation deck provides patrons with 360 degree floor-to-ceiling views of Melbourne and beyond.
During the school holidays guests will also be able to take full advantage of:
The Edge - The world’s only Edge experience is an awe inspiring a 3m by 3m transparent glass cube, which slides out from the building on Level 88, suspending guests above the Melbourne skyline. Patrons can purchase their official photo taken while out on the Edge, ready for upload to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
The Outdoor Terrace - Enclosed by a wire grid, the Outdoor Terrace exposes guests to the elements on Level 88. The Terrace is right next to the Edge, so family and friends can view those inside.
