FunPass for Rides & Games

Get rides and games tickets instantly, with no waiting in line!

The information below is from the 2019 Fair, and it will give you an idea of what to expect in 2020. Please check back soon!

Get a FunPass!

Want to experience the thrills and fun of our carnival rides and games in a much easier way than ever before? Then get yourself a FunPass!

New for 2019, the FunPass is a card or an app that you load with pre-purchased ride and game tickets. At each ride and game, the barcode on your FunPass is scanned, and the correct amount for that ride or game is deducted.

If you don’t use all your tickets in one day, use them the next time you come to the Fair. When you use up your tickets, load up more!

FunPass Card

Buy the FunPass Card at carnival ticket booths, with as many tickets as you wish. When you need to reload your card, do it at the Fair carnival ticket booths.

Get the FunPass app

Download the FunPass app to buy tickets on your phone. Your FunPass tickets can be scanned for rides and games directly from your phone.

The FunPass app offers many advantages that the card does not, some of which are:

  • You don’t have to wait in line to buy a FunPass card; you can buy the tickets through the app.
  • Your phone will have the barcode that will be scanned at each ride or game; no need to keep track of a card.
  • Mom or Dad can buy tickets and send them to their kids’ phones.
  • The app tracks all usage, so Mom or Dad can see how their kids used the tickets.
