Frequently Asked Questions:
What are Magic Money wristbands for?
Magic Money is the new and improved way to enjoy the carnival. It is a reusable, reloadable RFID wristband that is used as payment for carnival rides, games and more. Magic Money is accepted at all food and beverage locations on the fairgrounds. Magic Money can also be used for pony rides, feed at the petting zoo, dunking booth and fair wear booths.
How do I buy a Magic Money wristband?
This year, Magic Money wristbands are available for purchase onsite only. After purchasing or redeeming a fairgrounds gate pass, guests can buy wristbands at the Magic Money locations, all over the fairgrounds.
Insider Tip: There are also several vending machines and manned carnival ticket booths throughout the fairgrounds where guests can purchase Magic Money.
What type of wristbands can I buy?
You can buy a daily unlimited ride wristband, or a pre-loaded wristband with credits. You may also add credits to your unlimited ride wristbands. Unlimited ride wristbands nontransferable or one for one, meaning only one (1) guest may use the wristband. The initial purchase of the wristband includes a $2 fee. Reloads are free! Wristbands that are loaded with credits are transferable, meaning multiple guests may use the same wristband.
Insider Tip: If you have small children, please note that children must be 36” or taller to ride many of the rides, including children’s rides. Parents with children under 48" should pay special attention to height requirements before buying unlimited ride wristbands.
How do I reload my wristband or check how many credits I have left?
You can reload your wristband or check your wristband balance by visiting a Magic Money booth, reload kiosk or by using the app. To use the app, scan the QR code on your wristband.
