Lincoln thrill seekers set for a soaking as giant water slide heads to the city

Thrill seekers in Lincoln can add Sunday, July 12 to their diaries as a giant inflatable water slide heads to the city.

Update: The route for the Lincoln Flume has now been announced. Click here for more details.

The event, organised by the Rotary Club of Lincoln Colonia, will see a slide, similar to the giant flume set up in the centre of Bristol and in Wigan, lined along a Lincoln street with riders taking turns to hurtle down on a lilo.

The rotary club organise a number of events in Lincoln such as the Lincoln Santa Fun Run, the Lincoln Sausage Festival and the city’s Swimarathon.

Tickets will be available for a go on the flume via a dedicated website which is currently under construction.

Ticket prices have not yet been disclosed and details of the website will be released during the Easter holidays.

People can receive updates on the upcoming event via the Lincoln Flume Facebook page, and by following @TheLincolnFlume and using #ZoomTheFlume on Twitter.
