The giant slide on the Illinois State Fairgrounds is now up for sale.
According to Amy Raftis with Prairie State Bank & Trust, the bank now owns the slide. The bank is not interested in owning the slide and hopes to sell it as soon as possible.
Anyone interested can purchase the Pittroff Giant Slide for $135,000. […]
The slide is privately owned, but it does operate as a vendor of the Department of Agriculture during the fair. This means it is under lease with the Illinois Department of Agriculture which calls for a single lease payment plus a percentage of income to the fair.
