The Sesame Slides "Tunnel Slide"

Sesame Slides were a series of colorful slides that were at the park on opening day. They were located near the Nets 'N Climbs.

Children would walk up a flight of stairs to a landing from there they could either go down the row of slides that faced the front of the park or a long blue "tunnel slide" that faced the back of the park.

You can see the tunnel slide in the top left of this image:

The tunnel was actually a series of pieces that were attached together over a flat slide.
