Epic new inflatable coming to SEAPARC pool

Not only will the new water slide be the biggest one around, but also accommodates people of all ages.

Those looking to cool off and feel like a kid all over again this summer, well good news: a giant dragon-shaped inflatable water slide is coming to town.

Yes, you read that correctly. An inflatable water slide in the shape of a dragon.

Over 16 meters long and weighing as much as a Mini Cooper, the new water slide will be unveiled at the SEAPARC Dragon Run in the Pool launch party on July 11 from 1 to 3 p.m.

Better yet, there’s no age restriction; both adults and kids can share the slide alike, as long as the person riding the inflatable is at least 48 inches tall.

But while the slide itself is clearly a dragon, it still needs a cool name. SEAPARC staff is inviting the public to the Name our Dragon contest, with forms available at the SEAPARC reception.

Submissions will be accepted until 12pm on July 3 and the winner (plus five friends) will get a free pass to the launch party.
