It’s time for slime!

Hundreds of revelers had the time of their lives during a Blacklight Slide party at the Aviator Sports and Events Center on July 21. Partiers from all over zoomed down giant water slides filled with fluorescent green slime and then danced the night away to a disc jockey playing popular beats.

It was one of the best nights of summer, said one East New Yorker who enjoyed the party with her friends.

“It was so much fun, a great experience,” said Jessica Coreano. “Everyone should try it and bring friends.”

And one group of teens came all the way from faraway Long Island to celebrate one of their friend’s 15th birthday after they heard about it through the social media app Instagram.

It was the best birthday bash, said Long Islander Emily Araco, and they’re already planning for her Sweet Sixteen.

“It was so much fun, it was the best night, and there was like a huge rave and you just danced,” she said. “It was just really worth it, I plan on going next year.”

And for those who can’t wait a whole 365 days for more blacklight parties, Aviator is hosting a water-themed laser-tag party called Blacklight Wars, on Aug. 26, and then a blacklight 5K run on Sept. 16.

Aviator Sports and Events Center (3159 Flatbush Ave. in Floyd Bennett Field in Marine Park, (718) 758–7500,]. Prices vary.
