We will send you the event prospectus with all the info and costs to be a Sponsor or Vendor.

Personal tent space can be purchased on our tickets page. Please see an event coordinator upon arrival to check in and secure your location. For safety reasons and due to the high volume of vendors expected, personal tents will not be allowed in our primary gated event space at the Sonesta Essential hotel. Personal tents cannot have branding and be used to promote any businesses, without authorization. Personal tents must be heavily secured, subject to inspection by our team, and in case of high winds, you may be asked to take down or lower your tent for safety reasons. No personal tents will be allowed at Sling Experience host hotels or event space without explicit permission.

We hire security guards or Houston Police to be onsite every evening and during our busy day times.

We use an app called JoinR to track our major rides.  You can download the app and use the code “sling-event” to join our group.  All participants are encouraged to sign in and join, as it helps see where groups of Slingshots are on a map.  We also provide a write up with “rally points” for each major ride on our social media pages.

Yes!  We always have several great food options available on site.  The host hotel will also have free breakfast from 6:30 to 9:30 am for hotel guests each day.  We also often give away free food during special times or promotions, so be on the lookout!

Yes, you can bring your beverages of choice.  No alcohol sales allowed on-site.  Please be safe, responsible, and do not drink and drive.

Out of respect for our primary sponsor Polaris Slingshot, and the fact that we expect to have hundreds of Slingshots at this years event, unfortunately we cannot open up our main event space to other vehicles at this time.  Rare exceptions may be made, please talk to an event coordinator for guidance.

If you would like to camp in your RV we have a list below of RV Parks near by. RVs are not allowed to park at the hotels or restaurants at the event. We need all the space for parking Slingshots. If you will be staying at one of the hotels and traveled here with your RV, we do have free secured trailer parking where you can store the RV. Please check the MAP tab for address and information.

Yes we will a mobile detail service company onsite at Sling Experience. We will be updating this section with more information soon of the company name.

Please use the JoinR App search sling-event to find the Sling Experience Group to track your location and track our location for every ride. It allows the group to see where other riders are on a map, and chat with each other if needed.

Keep it tight. Leave a safe distance between you and the vehicle in front of you, but very large gaps will break up the group.

For our larger rides, we will provide maps and written details with rally points and times. Go to the Main Tent for more details.

We try our best to stay on time, and we’ll be taking it pretty slow.

Please fall to the back of the line if you need to break of from the group, to ensure no one accidentally follows you.

Please try to arrive at the event with a full tank before going on any major rides. Some rides may travel up to 60 miles before the first gas station stop, plan accordingly.

Look out for hand signals while riding, to merge into one lane or split into two or more lanes. Pass the hand signal back behind you. Spreading out into multiple lanes allows us to stay closer together as a group and get more people through a light.

When we pause or slow down on a street, please try to keep a lane open to allow other vehicles or our ride captains to pass. Usually if we stop or slow down on a street we are not staying very long, so please stay in or near your vehicles.

If someone is blocking traffic for you, please try to keep it moving quickly. Please try your best to stay alert and obey all traffic laws. Sling Safely.

We strive to have the most expansive group of slingshot brands at our event! We have a growing list of vendors and have updated them on the website. https://slingexperience.org/sponsorsandvendors/
