600m (2000ft) long! 92m (300ft) vertical drop! Over a minute worth of sliding fun!
This event was on the 27th and 28th of March 2015 at Jonkers Farm, by Bethels Beach, in Auckland, New Zealand.

This massive, completely inflatable slide was built by Live More Awesome, a mental health non-profit charity in New Zealand.
This waterslide got people outside in the sun, Vitamin D is great for mental health, it got people fit running up that hill (some people did it 21 times in one day!), it got people interacting with a wonderful, supportive and helpful community, it gave people a goal and something to look forward to and it gave us and you an opportunity to talk about mental health in the general media and community and that’s hugely important to removing the stigma wrongly associated with mental health.
We own this… where should we go next?!?!
