SkyGlider presented by BeSafeOhio.com

One of the world’s longest portable sky rides is right in your backyard at the Ohio State Fair.  Hop on at one of the access points in Kiddieland or near the Cardinal Gate and enjoy a relaxing half-mile journey across the Fair. The SkyGlider does not take ride tickets or use the Midway ride-all-day wristband. Tickets for this attraction are $3 per rider for a one-way ride.
