The 250-ft long slide is a highlight of the farm during the fall festival this year
Anderson, SC (September 21, 2022) – Slide Mountain at Denver Downs Farm in Anderson, SC will open on Saturday, September 24th, kicking off their Fall Festival season, which lasts through November 13th. The Mega Super Slide Mountain is the newest attraction at this family favorite farm, which also has placed in the Top 10 corn mazes in the country in the USA Today 10Best Readers’ Choice lists for five years.
“Slide Mountain is a fast, fun, and thrilling new experience at Denver Downs Farm and we cannot wait to hear the cries of joys from riders as they fly down the slide!” said Catherine Garrison, Co-Owner of Denver Downs.
The colorful double lane slide is 250 feet long and riders can go up to 35 mph. If guests don’t feel they can take the excitement, they can watch from a viewing bridge atop the slide for an excellent view of the fun. Students at Clemson University assisted in the design of the slide, which also happens to be an excellent teaching device during class field trips this season to the farm.
No other slide like this exists in the Upstate of South Carolina. Kids must be 42” tall to ride the slide.
“Slide Mountain is just the beginning of the excitement at Denver Downs Farm this year,” said Garrison. “We’ve expanded the farm to add about 30 percent more space to our agritourism acres, which means more fun for the whole family.”
In addition to the giant Mega Super Slide Mountain, Denver Downs has added another jumping pillow and set the two pillows into a large enclosed space with shaded seatings for parents. The smaller kids will enjoy a new play area with a climbing wall and slide plus covered sandbox. The zip line, 10-acre corn maze, ropes course, tube slide, farm animals, pig races, barnyard games, hay barn with swinging ropes, human foosball, racing tricycles, and endless cow train are all making comebacks for the 2022 season as well.
The farm opens for its fall season on Saturday, September 24th and continues through November 13th. Weekend themes will include entertainment like the Pumpkin Princess Contest, Rhinestone Cowboy weekend, and Grandparents Day. Live music and bonfires will continue into the fall evenings for those wanting to stretch their day even longer.
“We strive each year to provide more fun and even more memorable experiences for our guests at the farm and we are hoping this year will be the most fun yet with the biggest, most exciting attractions,” said Garrison.
