Ticket prices start at $13 for a single slide and go as high as $99 for an all day pass.

The slide is restricted to people five years of age and older, and 46 inches or more in height.

Participants can register online at the Slide the City website.

Slide the City toured 70 cities last year, including Kamloops, with plans to visit 100 locations this year.
