A 1,000-foot-long Slip 'N Slide
If you didn’t have a pool growing up, a Slip 'N Slide was another way to cool off, as long as you weren’t too concerned about grave injuries. As an adult, though, launching yourself down a wet strip of plastic is a good way to get arrested for public intoxication.
Now, thanks to Slide the City, you can recapture that joy and discomfort on a 1000-foot-long Slip 'N Slide that travels to cities across the U.S.A. As long as you’re able-bodied enough to survive the trip down, they'll let you join in. We'll wait while you check out their touring schedule.
The largest water pistol fight ever
Water pistol fights allow kids to participate in the cherished childhood activity of simulated murder. However, with games like Call of Duty now available to anyone with overly-permissive parents, water fights don't really scratch that itch.
That is, unless you participated in the record-setting water pistol fight held at the University of California, Irvine, which involved 3,875 participants, half of whom (probably) filled those guns up with vodka when the administration wasn’t looking. We don’t have any evidence to prove that, but it seems like a reasonable assumption to make.
And they say higher education is overrated!
Laser tag while skydiving
For the more tech-savvy kid, home laser tag kits allowed for the fun of water pistol fights combined with the fun of making your parents spend more money than necessary. Also, lasers.
Nitro Circus, realizing that a bunch of grown men running around the lawn with fake battle equipment might look suspicious, decided to amp up the intensity by playing laser tag while skydiving. Because growing up sometimes simply means having access to someone with a pilot’s license.
