The Giant Hippo Water Slide Gets Pumped Up For Coney

The Hippo water slide, promised a few weeks ago by Thor Equities, has arrived on one of the empty lots at Stillwell Avenue where the miniature golf course used to be. It is now sitting on the lot awaiting to be inflated. Adjacent to the water slide, a little shack was being constructed today. It will house refreshments and possibly snacks along with a ticket counter. The unofficial word by construction workers was that it will be inflated and pumped up for action this weekend to coincide with the Mermaid Parade.

You can see a video of the Hippo in action at the Hippo Water Slide website!
