Slide the Rails: Celebrate summer’s end in Scottsdale

Posted

Scottsdale’s McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park is hosting an outdoor wet and wild family event Saturday, Aug. 7, to ring in the end of summer and slide into the new school year.

Running 8 a.m.-1 p.m., the event promises a variety of inflatable water slides and obstacle courses suitable for all ages.

The railroad park was recently closed due to storm damage, but park officials confirm to the Independent that Slide the Rail is scheduled to go on as planned.

New to the event this year will be a bubble foam pit. Cold drinks and treats will be available for purchase, according to the event website.

Cost will be $10, which includes unlimited access to the water attractions as well as unlimited train and carousel rides. Wristbands are required for all guests ages 3 and older; children aged 2 and younger are free with a paying adult.

Wristbands will be sold on-site the day of the event.
