Variety Ice Slide at Eureka Skydeck, Riverside Quay, Southbank Melbourne

Weeee! Melbourne has its first and only ice slide this winter with the Variety Ice Slide at Eureka Skydeck open from Saturday 25 June to Sunday 17 July.

The 40 metre long, four-meter high ice slide is on Southbank’s waterfront near Eureka Skydeck. For $10 you get three goes of riding an inflatable tube down the slide. Eureka Skydeck, in partnership with Mirvac and Fuze Tea, will donate a portion of the funds to Variety: The Children’s Charity.

We visit the slide for a preview and I can report it is really fun, even for non-adrenalin junkies like me.

Note it does go fast and the heavier you are the faster you’ll go.

There are crash mats at the end though I think they’re about 10m too short as most people I noticed (including me) hit it quite hard.

Kids under 4 years need to go with an adult in one of the bigger slides, kids over 4 years old can ride their own smaller inflatable tube.
