Astroglide was an Giant Slide (multi-lane mat slide) produced by UK manufacturer Bennett. Over a hundred units were produced by the company between 1970 and 1978, making them the largest manufacturer of the ride type in Europe at the time. Following the dissolution of Bennett in the 1980s, fellow UK manufacturer Harry Steer Engineering built a series of their own Giant Slides using the Bennett design.
