Client: Cancer Research UK

Supplier: Airquee: UK and Europe's biggest slide the city / city slide manufacturer and inflatable city slide manufacturer.

Project: 150 metre inflatable city slide for cancer research used for their slide the city fundraising events around the UK and Ireland.

The BackgroundAfter investigating different potential suppliers, Ryan McClintock and Sharon Arbuckle contacted Airquee. An experienced competent manufacturer was needed to demonstrate and deliver manufacturing excellence, but also provide on-site supervision and oversight. They quickly decided that Airquee was the company capable of providing exactly what they needed for this unique fundraising event in the UK.

The Concept: The idea was for a huge water slide to be placed on one of the longest hills in Northern Ireland running through Londonderry / Derry city centre.It was similar to an idea for a giant street inflatable in America which had already proved to be a huge success. The slide needed to have 3 lanes which would use water, inflatable floats, and foam to help players slide into the giant water pool at the end.

Design: With such a high volume of participants expected, the design review needed to be extremely thorough with safety constantly in the forefront of the designers minds. Airquee carried out a site survey to anticipate any potential obstacles, obstructions or technical factors that could affect our delivery of the required result. With detailed surveys, environment analysis and consultation with our on-the-ground staff, the Airquee designerscreated the plans for the unit speedily and effectively.

Production: As Europes largest manufacturer of inflatable equipment, the size and capability of Airquee was a huge factor in our ability to produce the slide within a short timeframe. From the design sign-off to delivery of the slide to Ireland was less than 4 weeks.

The event: As always when Airquee supply an inflatable, the entire event was a huge success and went without a hitch. Airquee would like to thank Cancer Research UK for this great opportunity.
