New This Year: Ticket Kiosks

If you’ve been to the FunFair in previous years, things may be a little different this year, so we wanted to share about the changes to make everyone’s visit to the FunFair a bit smoother!

This year, instead of tickets, rides will require credits. And instead of ticket booths, the Soundside FunFair will have ticket kiosks (see the pictures below). These kiosks will be self-service, and will allow you to purchase a fun pass card to put credits on (and to reload later in the evening as needed) or to purchase an unlimited ride wristband on-site.

For those purchasing a wristband from these kiosks, you will purchase the band and then take your receipt for the wristband to the ‘Arm Band Redemption Station’ (to the left of the kiosks) to have your wristband put on. All members of your party receiving a wristband must be there to have their band put on.

For those who purchased a voucher for a discounted wristband from CYP over the last month, you will take your voucher straight to the ‘Arm Band Redemption Station’ to trade for your wristband.

For those purchasing credits/wristbands from the kiosks, prices are as follows (fun pass cards and wristbands will have an additional activation fee):

  • -100 credits- $10
  • -200 credits- $20
  • -550 credits- $50
  • -Unlimited Ride Wristband- $30

Rides on site range in how many credits they require from 20 credits to 70 credits, depending on ride intensity.
