If your family is coming to Omaha, stop by this 'great fun experience' for the whole family. Just stop and get some wax paper; place it under you, and watch yourself 'fly' down the slide! FUN FOR ALL!!

This is a good place to hang out with friends on the steps nearby the slides. It is a bit dirty with some litter, but the paper bags and cardboard box scraps are there to make it easier and faster to go down the slides....More

My 4 year old could have stayed on those slides all day. A lot of people were coming to enjoy them, and all were patient and courteous. Two cops on horseback were close by talking with pedestrians and taking pictures. A very family friendly atmosphere.

We were looking to kill some time on our recent visit to Omaha. The slides were great for the kids and walking around was the perfect way to do so.

My daughter loves the Gene Leahy Mall slide and ok, maybe I do too! Bring some wax paper - it will make you go down faster!

My husband visit Gene Leahy Mall every time we are in the area for dining or a concert at the Holland. A wonderful place to stroll hand in hand or just sit and watch others enjoying themselves.

Response from Rick M | Reviewed this property |
I believe that the deepest point is 12 feet, but the river walk itself is much shallower than that. The current is basically nonexistent and I have never heard of any problems or accidents in all of the years that it has... More
