The water slide is the brainchild of Erik Holm. Last July he created a Facebook group for the event with a photoshopped image of a slide running through Oslo. The event went viral, and in 3 days the page received over 60,000 likes from people wanting to slide from the Royal Palace down Karl Johan’s street. However, that was only a dream and no actual event was planned at the time. Fortunately, due to the power of social media and support of the masses, Erik’s dream for Oslo will come true this weekend.
