Prince George, B.C. – Next weekend’s Fun City Sliders Slip N Slide event on University Way has been cancelled due to poor ticket sales.

In a prepared statement, the company says ticket sales “Indicate that there is insufficient support for the event on an annual basis.”

This despite positive reviews from last year’s inaugural event in Prince George.

Clients that purchased tickets have been notified and will receive a full refund.


too many fatso love the ride down, can’t handle the walk back up, just like a water slide park.

NO – I think it is just the way PG is — Waite till the last Minute to get/buy things. Just like Volunteering — we always get the job done in the end.
We should of been given a “Buy Now or Else”.

Could it be because there hasn’t been as much advertising for the event this time. I barely even heard of it coming.

Maybe try reducing the price and more will afford it

Pumps broke down last year, ill prepared and yet they wanted big bucks. People getting hung up due to lack of water. Big bust overall! And they wonder why it was cancelled. Guess they figured PG was a hick town and could get by. I do think the event could be pulled off with the right advertising and a better company to handle it.

This is the kind of event that people wait until day-of to buy tickets. Why would I buy tickets in advance for something like this? Just show up and buy tickets when I get there.

Took the family to Cultus Lake waterpark this year and it only cost $50 bucks for the half day. I think they have something like 9 different tube rides, plus all the other stuff… around another $50 will get one a day pass for the family at the theme park across the road as well. Thought that was excellent value. About par for the course for something like Calgary Zoo… but the Vancouver Aquarium is another matter where its like $50 a head for an organization that no longer has any big draw items.

PG could use a big draw item. It would have to be indoors though… my suggestion would be a waterpark at Pine Center, or a riverfront zoo with grizzly bears, wolves, cougars, wolverines and other northern animals from the region….
