Riverfront Summer Slide

The new Riverfront Summer Slide will be one of the main focal points of this year’s festival, taking thrill-seekers to the next level of adventure. The 30-foot high slide will whisk riders through a pitch-black tube and quickly drop them at a steep, 40-degree angle. With speeds of up to 20 mph, this exhilarating attraction is one attendees will want to experience again and again. Children, and less adventurous types, can ride down a 30-degree drop slide that is still bound to excite festivalgoers. The slide will be located in the DNR Milliken State Park on the Hill. 

Choose from the 40 degree or the 30 degree slide, for just $3.

Please note: Rules for Riding the Riverfront Summer Slide

1)      30 degree slide riders must be 44” tall

2)      40 degree slide riders must be 54” tall
