Anyone who’s been to Minnesota during the summer knows about the giant slide at the Minnesota State Fair, and if you haven’t been to the there while you’re in town, you’re missing out. No, really, you’re missing out. There’s a reason it’s called the Great Minnesota Get-Together, and attracts nearly 2 million visitors annually—the cheese curds, Sweet Martha’s cookies and French fries might be a big reason why. But enough salivating, let’s focus on the task at hand. The aforementioned giant slide now has a frozen cousin in the form of the St. Paul Super Slide presented by Securian in the heart of downtown at CHS Field, the home of the St. Paul Saints.
