Ready, set, glow!

Kings County thrill seekers flocked to Floyd Bennett Field Saturday night to plunge down a massive inflatable slide lit by psychedelic glow lights, in an attraction one rider said was groovy for the whole family.

“I enjoyed it because, it was suitable to bring my family. It was a good time, especially at the end with the music playing,” said Daniel Hardene.

The whacky event saw locals zipping down water slides filled with UV neon green slime and then dancing to house music spun by disc jockeys.

Blacklight Slide encourages those who are going to go down the slide to wear white T-shirts, so the “UV slime” — also known as colored water — would be visible during the after party.

Hardene’s family drove an hour and a half to attend the event and said they would come back when Blacklight Slide returns.

And for those who can’t wait 365 days, psychedelic slide will be returning to Floyd Bennet Field this weekend!
