**The current Covid situation has inevitably delayed all plans for the return of the Ryde Slide. Please keep in touch with this website for news on future plans that will be announced in due course.
The Wightlink Ryde Slide will be taking a year off and looking to return again in 2020. The event is acknowledged to be the longest public waterslide in the UK and has become a big part of the Island’s summer calendar in just a few years. “The event depends on a lot of people volunteering their time and resources and a year just goes by too quickly. We’ve decided to catch our breath and come back bigger next year,” commented the Slide’s founder Wayne Whittle.
