Rides 4U - New & Used Rides Now Booking Food, Games, Rides for select dates!

The Minnesota State Fair announced its lineup of rides and attractions for the Mighty Midway and Kidway at the 2019 Minnesota State Fair. 

"We will have two rides that are new to our midway in 2019.  Mr. Ed's Magical Midways is bringing in a Zero Gravity and Skerbeck Entertainment Group is bringing in a Sea Ray.  2019 game operators and operations remain largely unchanged in our midway as compared to 2018," stated Jim Sinclair, Fair Deputy General Manager and Midway Coordinator.

"Our Kidway will have no new ride operators or rides in 2019, but we are making some changes in ride layout in an effort to create a more open center area and provide for greater visibility through the entire Kidway" added Sinclair.

Sitting off the Mighty Midway is the iconic five-story Giant Slide, which is celebrating it`s 50th anniversary this year.   It is estimated that over 9 million fair visitors have ridden the slide since it opened.  The Giant Slide is operated by the Pittroff family and first brought the slide to the fair in 1969.  To celebrate the 50th season, special limited-edition commemorative T-shirts and hats will be available outside the slide.

The 2019 Minnesota State Fair runs Aug. 22 - Labor Day, Sept. 2.
