Slide the City, a traveling water entertainment company from Utah, is bringing its enormous, two-lane water slide to northeast Ohio this summer, with plans to hit three major cities: Cleveland, Akron, and Youngstown.

For a fee, riders can whiz through 1,000 feet of city streets on inner tubes or other flotation devices, which seems like a positively delightful way to take in our fine city.

Prices are on the steep side, clocking in at $15 for a single ride, $30 for three rides, and $50 for an unlimited pass. Depending on the package, inner tubes may also need to be rented. Don't feel too bad, though. Slide the City has been known to donate some of its proceeds to local charities.

Dates have been set for Youngstown (June 27) and for Akron (Aug. 2), but have not yet been announced for Cleveland, nor has its setup location. Our vote? Cedar Hill.
