Carnival Ride Prices & Restrictions

Hours of Operation

Butler Amusements presents an extraordinary array of rides, from those just for children to the Super Spectaculars that tower over the midway. These exciting, enjoyable rides, operated by professional personnel, thrill children to kids at heart. The Main Lawn Carnival opens at 3 p.m. (Monday through Friday) and Noon (Saturday and Sunday). Kiddyland opens at Noon each day.

Ride Bracelets and Coupons

P.O.P. (pay one price) ride bracelets are offered daily at the Fair. September 7-9 and September 14-16, 2018 Bracelets are $32. Bracelets are $30 on September 10 - 13, 2018. The purchase of an admission ticket to the Fair and a bracelet will allow unlimited rides within the carnival area on the days listed above.

As rides have height requirements, patrons under 42 inches tall are advised that P.O.P. ride bracelets may not be the best value for them. During the Fair, individual coupons are $1 each. Sheets of 27 coupons are $25. Sheets of 80 coupons are $70. Sheets of 120 coupons are $100.  Each ride requires 3 to 5 tickets per ride.
