Bristol Park and Slide Project by Artist Luke Jerram.
A participant takes part in the Bristol Park and Slide project, an interactive temporary installation by artist Luke Jerram set up in Park Street in the centre of Bristol, southwest England on May 4, 2014. Over 95,000 people applied for just 360 tickets to slide on inflatable lilos down a lubricated water slide in a town centre street.
This giant 95m (300ft) water slide was installed on Park Street in Bristol as part of Make Sunday Special and the Bristol Art Weekender. Running for one day only, it was an event for the city to remember!
96,573 people signed up for their chance to get a ‘ticket to slide’, through a ballot with only 360 tickets issued to a few lucky people on the day. Security clocked in 65,000 people who came to Park street to watch.
