I can’t believe I’ve lived here over 20 years and never heard about the giant slide at Rocky Ridge. My friend Danny told me about taking his 4 year old son there today and I was all, huh? What are you talking about? A giant wooden slide that’s been there for forever, that I could have taken my kids to when they were younger but never knew about??
Apparently the land it’s on is owned by a church or something. There are signs that tell you to slide at your own risk and there are burlap sacks available to slide on down the slick wooden surface.
Imagine a bumpy bowling alley tilted on end. You are the human bowling pin! No fear! A pile of sawdust awaits you at the bottom. Grab one of the scraps of fabric at the base (burlap sack is the fastest), climb the ramp and slide away!
Locally known as a “Sliding Board”(35 ft High x 100 ft Long). Close to Thurmont, MD, home of Camp David.
How did I not know about this? Has anyone been there?
It’s located on Motter’s Station Rd (MD 76) , 1/4 mile north of Rocky Ridge. Admission is free!
