It’s FAIR time. North Georgia State Fair Starts Thursday, Sept 21.

GET READY TO SLIDE AT SUPERIOR PLUMBING NORTH GEORGIA STATE FAIR

Hey Georgia! Get ready to slide into some mega size fun! The Superior Plumbing North Georgia State Fair is proud to add the mega slide to our already outstanding James H. Drew Exposition midway. Before being acquired by the Drew Expositions, the Mega Slide spent many years at the Erie County Fair in Hamburg, N.Y. The slide has been completely refurbished top to bottom with a colorful new paint job (fun insider fact: Yellow paint keeps the slide cool, even more so than white!). At fifty feet high and rippling out an impressive one hundred and seventy feet, the yellow and green mega slide will be one of the most iconic structures at the North Georgia State Fair. With wavy lengths of grooved, galvanized metal over a steel scaffolding support, the newest ride at Jim R. Miller Park will have everyone talking.

The first giant slide made its appearance at a state fair in Minnesota in 1968. Since then, generations of families have enjoyed this oversized attraction. However, they have become increasingly rare, with less than 10 giant slides operating in the U.S. Drew Expositions owner, Jimmy Drew, says “We are thrilled to bring the iconic mega slide to the North Georgia State Fair. We are always looking for new ways to wow our patrons, so we look for those wow attractions like the Wildcat Rollercoaster, the Georgia Mountain Lift, and now, the Mega Slide”.

Fair Manager, Tod Miller adds, “We are so thankful to Drew Expositions for selecting the North Georgia State Fair to be the new home of the Mega Slide. It is such a classic fair attraction and everyone ages three to ninety-three, loves it. We know it is sure to become a new family tradition”.
