SURREY — Ever want to ride a waterslide inside a mall? Well, today is your lucky day. Sort of.
Splashdown Park will be at Guildford Town Centre giving away tickets to the water park before it closes its doors after 33 years.
They’re also transforming the upper level escalator (near Purdy’s Chocolates) into a waterslide of sorts. A 360-degree video will simulate a water slide at Splashdown as people ride down the escalator.
The event will run from 3 to 8 p.m. today (July 7).
“We hope we have been able to create fun memories of water slides as part of growing up in the Lower Mainland,” said Splashdown manager Harold Frederiks. “Many students had their first summer jobs at the park and many couples have met at the park while working. There have been a lot of laughs, from annual charity events for Make A Wish to getting to meet great people over the years.”
