The Ultimate Waterslide

This past weekend Salt Lake City residents were treated with a summer gift: a 1,000-foot long slip-and-slide down the city’s Main Street. The massive slide was a huge hit and was accompanied by live music, food trucks and street performers.

Now the organizers are looking at different cities around North America to bring their summer event to. And guess what, Vancouver is on the list!

The event isĀ  pay-to-ride, with single tickets running around $15 and triple slides at a discounted rate of $25. For an extra $10 ($35 total), sliders can buy an unlimited access pass. The organizers also offer a $45 VIP experience with extended sliding hours, lunch included and various sliding swag.

The organizers in Salt Lake donated the proceeds to Ronald McDonald House and the Utah Aids Foundation.

The big question is which street in Vancouver would be best for a 1,000-foot water slide? We’re thinking Alberni downtown, or maybe an extreme version on Oak Street, right next to Vancouver’s favourite mattress store, Simmons Mattress Gallery.

And don’t worry; the slide is mounted on a layer of foam. Maybe not as comfortable as the memory foam found inside in a Simmons Beautyrest, but enough so you won’t rip up your belly on the pavement.

Tell us where you think the slide should go with the hashtag #VanSlide.


Vancouver Welcomes Summer With Open Arms

Well it looks like summer may finally be coming to the west coast.

After a wet spring, that we would all probably like to forget, the sun is finally starting to poke through. The beaches around Vancouver are starting to fill, the tennis courts have line-ups until dusk and with June being ‘Bike Month,’ more and more people are hitting the road with two wheels rather than four.

But with all this activity comes a price: fatigue. Our bodies are still on winter time. We may have only hit the gym once a week in the last eight months, but now, with the extra daylight and activities to enjoy, our bodies are seeing a lot more action.

So how do we compensate? Well, the correct answer would be to get more rest.

With the longer summer nights, we tend to forget that our bodies need a minimum of eight hours of sleep. This is especially true for an active lifestyle, which most of us are lucky enough to enjoy through the summer months.

Going to bed at a reasonable hour is essential.

If you are having trouble falling asleep or staying asleep with the added hours of daylight, maybe it’s time you looked into a mattress upgrade.

Simmons Mattress Gallery has a huge selection of mattresses to choose from. Come in and lay around our showroom. We want you to be comfortable enough to fall asleep in any condition, at any hour. A Beautyrest will provide that.

Pick yours out today and start prepping for a summer full of fun!
