Ramsgate Slide ballot now open

We are delighted to announce that the ballot for an opportunity to slide down a unique giant water slide on Ramsgate’s Royal Parade is now open, and will remain so until midnight next Monday, 24 July. As of midnight 24 July, the ballot is closed.

The Ramsgate Slide.

When a similar slide was installed in Bristol’s Park Street (pictured), around 100,000 people entered the ballot. We expect a large number of entries here in Ramsgate too.  Click here to enter the ballot.

The slide will operate for one day only on the final day of the festival, 30 July. Read more about what’s involved.

Participation in the ballot is subject to terms of use. You need to agree to these before submitting your name.

    How do you register a child please?

      Hi Suzie, you register a child (aged 6-13) the same way as an adult, via the ballot, but entering the child’s name along with a parent or carer’s contact details. I’m afraid children under 6 are not allowed to participate for safety reasons.

    Not one of my family or friends have had a reply. Really disappointed as my son really wanted to do it. There really must be very limited spaces.
