It looks like mass transportation for people in swimsuits, who don't want to go all that far.

This summer, two Colorado cities will host a giant 2-lane "Slip 'N Slide"-like ride that is 1,000-feet long, according to thedenverchannel.com.

Slide The City, a Utah-based entertainment company, says online that they'll be bringing their ride to Boulder on July 18 and Colorado Springs on Aug. 29.

Riders on inner tubes can travel three blocks along 13th Street in Boulder's University Hill, from Aurora to Pennsylvania avenues.

The Boulder event's Facebook page already has more than 8,000 people who have RSVP'd yes.

Right now, the website is accepting registration for the event along 13th Street in Boulder. Prices start at $15 for a single ride, $30 for three rides and $50 for an all-you-can-slide pass. If you're interested, be careful which pass you purchase. Some don't come with a tube, which is required for riding. Riders have to be taller than 46 inches and be 5 years old or older.

The event in Colorado Springs still doesn't have a precise location named and is not accepting registration at this time.

For context, Amazon.com sells a 16-foot-long Wham-O Slip 'N Slide starting at $10.13. But you'd have to ride it more than 62 times to travel the same distance as the massive slide in Slide the City.
