Southbank will once again be transformed into an action-packed winter playground when Eureka Skydeck presents the return of the Melbourne Ice Slide for families.
Last year more than 11,000 sliders took to the slippery slide and this year is predicted to be bigger and better than ever.
This fun winter activity will be set up along Southbank waterfront, featuring a huge 36-metre long, four-metre high ice slide complete with imported Canadian inflatable ice tubes and specially designed lanes of two.
Opening to the public on 1 July; just in time for the winter school holidays, Eureka Skydeck's Ice Slide is Melbourne's first and only outdoor giant slide, taking three days to set up using a fine misting system at -12 degrees.
A portion of the Ice Slide funds will go to not-for-profit organisation Variety: The Children’s Charity.
Where: Southbank waterfront outside the front of Eureka Skydeck
When: 1 - 16 July, 2017. Open daily 10am till late
Costs: $12 for three ice slides or $20 for six slides
