I plan on buying a carnival wristband, how long is it good for?
Carnival wristbands are good only the day of purchase, and for the length of the advertised special. Usually 3-4 hours.

I want to take my toddler on carnival rides, will I need a ride ticket too?
Yes, everyone who rides a carnival ride will require a ticket, even parents riding with their children. Please check with ride height requirements prior to purchasing carnival tickets. All children will require a ticket – some rides require two riders.
