Think swimwear, t-shirts and shorts which you don't mind getting wet!

Please avoid jeans, or anything with buckles and studs which can damage the slide.

You will be asked to remove jewellery, watches, belts and sunglasses as well as anything in your pockets, so you may want to leave them at home.
