New Attraction: Giant Slide Turns 50

Giant Slide Turns 50

The iconic five-story Giant Slide celebrates its 50th anniversary at the 2019 Minnesota State Fair. An estimated 9 million fair guests have ridden this landmark attraction, which is owned and operated by three generations of the Pittroffs, the family that first brought the slide to the fair in 1969.


Stop by for a selfie and buy a limited-edition commemorative T-shirt and hat (available only at the 2019 State Fair and while supplies last). Rides on the Giant Slide are $2.50 per person. Riders must be 45” or taller to ride unaccompanied; anyone under 45” must ride with a parent or guardian.

8 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. daily
