NBC is gearing up to have some fun in the sun with the exciting new competition gameshow “Ultimate Slip ‘N Slide” with a special two-night premiere on Sunday, Aug. 8 at 10:30 p.m. ET / 7:30 p.m. PT, immediately following the Closing Ceremony of the Summer Olympics, and Monday, Aug. 9 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
“NBC is proud to be the home of some of the biggest and most outrageous physical competition shows and we’re thrilled to add this larger-than-life version of the classic backyard game to our summer lineup,” said Jenny Groom, Executive Vice President, Unscripted Content, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming. “What better way to celebrate all the gold medals from the Olympic Summer Games than to give everyday people the opportunity to soar down an extraordinary 65-foot-tall slippery yellow slide.”
Featuring pairs of siblings, best friends, couples and co-workers, teams from all walks of life will compete in multiple hilarious rounds of games, including Human Pong, Body Bowling, Cornhole, Bocce Fall and many more. The two teams that make it to the final challenge will take on the Big Slipper, a colossal multi-part slide meant for only the bravest and boldest players as it determines who will earn the title of Slip ‘N Slide champion and take home the cash prize.
