How to Pay

  • The Carnival accepts: CASH, all credit and debit cards plus Google Pay and Apple Pay 
  • Pay One Price: Purchasers should be made aware that all rides have height requirements as stipulated by the ride manufacturer. If an unlimited ride credential is purchased for a patron who is not at least 42” tall, it may not be a good value. (See link below for ride regulations).
  • Cashless Midway:  The Magic Money system does not utilize ticket sellers, however, for customer satisfaction we have ticket ambassadors stationed near the large kiosks to answer and assist customers with the self-serve system. 
  • The Magic Money electronic system is a fully self-serve, intuitive system for customers to use and allows all rides, and game plays from a single, reloadable wristband. 

Customers have three options at the self-serve kiosks. 

  • Option 1- Redeem advance sales. Using the tablet, the customer scans the QR code on the advance sale ticket (either from the hard ticket, printed ticket, or off their phone). They are given the option to purchase tickets to play games. The system prints a physical wristband, and the customer attaches it to their own wrist. 
  • Option 2-Purchase unlimited ride wristband. The customer selects on the tablet the number of unlimited ride wristbands they would like, and if they want to add on any additional tickets to play games. Then, each wristband is printed, and the customer attaches it to their own wrist. On-site purchases are subject to additional service fees. 
  • Option 3- Only purchase ride/game tickets. Customers still have the option only to purchase ride/game tickets. The customer uses the tablet to choose how many tickets they would like (tickets are $1 each) and a wristband is printed with them loaded onto it. On-site purchases are subject to additional service fees. 

Customers can always add more tickets to their wristbands at any self-serve kiosk.
