The 4th annual Blowsand Megaslide is on! This year its going to be bigger and better than ever. We have stronger, wider plastic, more than 6000 gallons of water and a new course to run. Venture down a 700' slide that promises to be faster than ever before. Be one of the few to set a world record for longest water slide down a sand dune. Temperature will be hot so come prepared for triple digit weather. Blowsand is a huge sand dune born from generations of windstorms blowing across the desert and piling very fine sand on the side of a mountian in Ocotillo Wells. Quite a challenge for motorcycles, ATV's and any other vehicles. Perfect for constructing a giant slip and slide down!
Come join the fun.
$20 gets participants a wristband for unlimited slides, free hot dogs at Desert Ironwoods pool party and an event tshirt.
The pool party starts at Desert Ironwoods from noon until 5pm
The Mega sliide starts around 5:30 when the shade covers Blowsand and goes until we are out of water.
** What to Wear**
For the slide I recommend some sturdy boardshorts and a tshirt. Sand can be abrasive at speed. There is a pool at Desert Ironwoods to cool off in before the slide. A towel and change of clothes for the trip home.
