A GIANT waterslide came to Bournemouth on Sunday, although bad weather conditions put the fun on hold.

Earlier Sunday morning, thrillseekers were grabbing rubber rings and eagerly launching themselves down the 120m, two-lane slide on Richmond Hill.

The Daily Echo even took part in the fun (well, it is right outside our building after all...).

Armed with a GoPro, reporter Jade went down the waterslide. Check out the video below!

Slide Bournemouth is being organised by THIS Event Company, which delivered the ice rink in the Lower Gardens over the Christmas period.

However, operators deflated the attraction on Sunday due to high winds and rain.

The slide will re-open from 10am-2pm today. 

Other attractions in the vicinity include a hot tub, street food stands, bars and DJs.
