Ride in style in the new Slick Pickle Party Bus. The bus lets travelers sit back and relax on their way to concerts and reunions.

An idea has been brewing in New Castle for some months to get people to and from parties while also being safe on the road.

More than just a taxi or passenger van, the new Slick Pickle Party Bus lets friends start the festivities before they get to the main event.

The Slick Pickle can make just about any trip someone can come up with, said manager Mandy Fleming.

The Slick Pickle Party Bus is licensed and registered to go out of state. Fleming said the only restriction is that a round trip has to be under eight hours.

The inaugural launch of the Slick Pickle was in October when a group headed to Notre Dame for the Garth Brooks concert. Last month, a party rode the Slick Pickle Party Bus to and from 8 Second Saloon in Indianapolis.

The party bus is like a stretch limo with room to stand. Couches line the back and the cabin is wired for sound.

“We can hold 14 passengers,” Fleming said. “The playlist is up to the guests. Our sound system connects via blue tooth to your phone.”

Fleming said Slick Pickle is working on a routine trip to wineries and casinos, as well.

The party bus is perfect for private events, bachelor or bachelorette parties, birthdays, weddings or sporting events.

The Slick Pickle does not provide alcohol or food during the ride. However, guests are allowed to bring their own libations on the trip, since they aren’t getting behind the wheel.

Slick Pickle prices are $150 for the first hour, $125 for the second hour $100 for the third hour and $75 for the fourth hour.

A four-hour trip is $450, with each additional hour being an additional $50.

Trips on the Slick Pickle after midnight are an additional $25 per hour.
