The Big Slides are well known to all Omaha adults and children alike. You can sit and enjoy, or you can ride the slide!!! Make sure to bring some wax paper so you can really get going! A nice, clean and safe environment for everyone.

The two slides at this mall/park area were a hit with two of the adults and two of the children in our five-person party. Anyone staying near the downtown area with kids must check this out!

I visited on a cold, rainy day, but that didn’t stop me from sliding! I was the only person around which made the slide that much more enjoyable. The rain/plastic bag combo helped launch me down at a crazy fast speed. My first landing was...More

We read about the slides so we stopped to partake. Parking was ample and inexpensive. Slides were fast on newpaper but normal without.

Gene Leahy Mall is a nice place to walk. There are two slides (as seen in the picture) that have been there for probably 40 years. It is adjacent to the Old Market so take 15 minutes and walk through the park.

I believe that the deepest point is 12 feet, but the river walk itself is much shallower than that. The current is basically nonexistent and I have never heard of any problems or accidents in all of the years that it has... More
