 Fun & Games Prices

You can expect to pay about $5 a round for games at the Carnival Midway. The games look like they function similarly to last year, where your chances of winning big prizes go up the more you play and spend.

Carnival fun prices have increased from last year.

Carnival Tickets:

It's a $1 per ticket, just like last year. But that can add up. The Ferris Wheel alone is 5 tickets - essentially $5 - to ride. Numerous rides for younger children cost 3-4 tickets, and many thrill rides cost 5 tickets.

All things considered, buying a carnival armband is more economical for anyone wanting to hop onto more than a handful of rides. The armbands are $40 this year per person. If you're looking to save money on the armbands, CFD has a deal on July 25 and 26th for "Family Fun Days," offering buy 3 armbands for $100 and get one free (additional armbands for $25).
