For more savings, ride on special discount days! This year we have four days when the number of tickets required to ride the rides or play the games is reduced by one ticket all day long. These specials are offered all day on Thursday, Aug. 23, Monday, Aug. 27, Wednesday, Aug. 29 and Monday, Sept. 3.

The physical requirements for access to rides are set by their manufacturers and vary based on individual ride dynamics. For example, some of the Kidway rides may have a maximum height of 54 inches while others may have a minimum height of 36 inches, and still others may have a minimum height of 42 inches, unless accompanied by an adult. Mighty Midway rides generally have a minimum height of 48 inches. Each ride/attraction at the Minnesota State Fair is required to have a clearly understood and visible sign that communicates to the public appropriate height instructions and warnings regarding safe use of the attraction, including instructions for persons with disabilities and parents of minor children, as well as limitations or exclusions due to age, weight, height or physical condition. We also provide information kiosks in both the Mighty Midway and Kidway where guests can measure their height for the purpose of determining which attractions may be appropriate for them.
