An Amaze spokesperson said: "There has been a lot of interest in a giant water slide coming to Brighton and Hove since the RNLI closed off Edward Street to host a similar slide some years ago.

"An American company has promised to bring a giant slide, but it is yet to materialise.

"Amaze is a local charity supporting families with disabled children and young people. We are keen to keep our services running and fundraise in a fun and positive way. We are proud to be the ones to open the slide to the public for the first time in Brighton on a first come first served basis."

Tickets are £12 per slide, which includes a minimum donation of £5 to the charity plus a booking fee of 80p.

Riders over the age of seven can book from 10am to 6pm, and will need suitable clothes such as swimming costumes or shorts and t-shirts.
