This week’s place to visit is Sliding Rock, North Carolina. This is one of North Carolina’s most famous thrills. This sixty-foot rock water slide is for all the adrenaline junkies. With 11 thousand gallons of water sliding over the rock every minute, you are guaranteed to have a heart-racing, unforgettable first ride.
Our NC Summer brings large crowds to this fun spot for all the tourists to take the plunge into this 7 foot drop!
For all the parents out there you will be happy you know there is always a lifeguard on duty from memorial day to labor and day pass admission is only $1! You can also buy a season pass for only $25!
Directions: From the intersection of NC 280 / US64 / US276 near Brevard, drive north on US276 for 7.5 miles and turn left into the parking area and up to the booth where you pay. You’ll see a ‘US Fee Area’ sign before the turn – there’s also a sign before the turn if you are coming south on 276 from the Blue Ridge Parkway.
