Admission Information

We have implemented a Fun Pass card system that eliminates the use of admission tickets, ride coupons, wristbands, food scrip, and cash transactions for games.  The Fun Pass contains credits that are used for admission, rides, games,  food & beverages, and novelties.  If you want to come to the Fair just to enjoy the circus and entertainment on stage and not ride rides, play games, or buy food & beverages or novelties, you may purchase an admission-only ticket for cash at the white ticket booth at the entrance to the Fair.  The Fun Passes are sold from card kiosks at the entrance to the Fair and also at locations throughout the fairgrounds, including the dining tents and game tent.  Below are the admission prices shown in dollars if buying an admisision-only ticket and in credits if using a Fun Pass. 

Children under 40" tall are FREE.

NOTE ABOUT WRISTBANDS:  We no longer sell wristbands, but the 30/30 Special and the 20/20 Special are the same value or better than the wristbands were last year.  If you purchase a Fun Pass for $20 or more, each credit on your card is equivalent to 10 cents.  For example, 20 credits for admission is equivalent to $2, and 30 credits is equivalent to $3.  When we sold wristbands last year, they were normally $30 for ten rides.  With the Fun Pass during the 30/30 Special, ten rides will be 300 credits (30 credits per ride), which is equivalent to $30---exactly the same as the normal price of a wristband in 2015.  During the 20/20 Special, ten rides will be 200 credits (20 per ride), which is equivalent to $20---$10 less than the normal price of a wristband in 2015.  The Fun Pass is also much quicker and easier to use than a wristband with ten tabs on it.

Special Attractions & Events

New for 2016:  The Equinox

 

New to the 50th State Fair is the Equinox!  The Equinox is a spectacular attraction shipped to Honolulu from the mainland for the 50th State Fair.  Riders will experience controlled flips as they are rotated 75 feet in the air on this spectacular thrill ride.

Hedrick's Petting Zoo


Hedrick's Promotions of Nickerson, Kansas, returns to the 50th State Fair with its ever popular petting zoo.  The petting zoo features new animals, including a baby goat that was born on Matson's ship the Mokihana a few hours before the ship arrived in Honolulu.  The zoo includes goats, sheep, cows, ponies, pigs, a pot-bellied pig, a turkey, chickens, llama, and alpaca.  Admission to the petting zoo is $3.  Animal feed may be purchased separately if a customer wishes to feed the animals.  However, if you do not wish to feed the animals, you may pet the animals and take photos with these friendly, amazing creatures from Kansas.

Anastasini Circus



Admission to the circus is free upon entry to the fairgrounds.  Giovanni Anastasini is the ring master and an 8th generation member of the world-renowned Anastasini circus family from Italy.  During the first three weekends of the Fair, the circus will feature high wire performers, aerial acts, magic, and illusions.  The last two weekends will feature aerial acts, Russian swing, dancing dogs, pony lion, perch act, and costume transformation. The stars of the circus are a diverse group of international performers from Italy, Russia, Mexico, Bulgaria, Columbia, and the United States.   Presenting an imposing site on the fairgrounds, the circus tent is 90' in diameter, 40' high inside from the ground to the top of the tent, and seats 900 people.

On Friday, June 17, at 8:45 p.m., one of the performers will walk the tight rope between two of the exterior 45' towers of the tent.

Fun Pass & Ride Information

The Fun Pass contains credits that are used for admission, rides, games, food & beverages, and novelties.  Below are the number of credits you receive depending upon how much you spend.

$5 =         40 Credits
$10 =       90 Credits
$20 =      200 Credits
$50 =      500 Credits
$100 = 1,000 Credits 

If you want to load $40 worth of credits (400) onto your card, press $20 twice on the screen.  If you press $20 (200 credits) and then press $10 (90 credits) and then press $10 (90 credits) again, you will have missed out on 20 bonus credits.

You may use cash or a credit card to purchase and reload a Fun Pass.

Follow the instructions on the card kiosk to purchase or reload your Fun Pass (click here to watch a video)

Credits will be removed from your card each time you use it for admission to the fairgrounds, to ride a ride, play games, purchase food & beverages, and buy novelties. 

Before getting in line, be sure you have enough credits on your card.  You may check your card balance at yellow "Check Balance" devices located throughout the fairgrounds. Card balances can also be checked at all of the food concessions. 

When you use your Fun Pass for admission, rides, games, food, and novelties, place your card on the card reader.  A green light means you have enough credits on your card for that activity.  A red light means there are not enough credits on your card.  You may reload your card at any of the card kiosks on the fairgrounds. including in the dining tents and the game tent.  If you are sharing a card, you must place your card on the card reader once for yourself and once for each person with you.  Wait for the light to turn green before paying for the next person.  Credits remaining on your card at the end of your visit will be good at most other E. K. Fernandez Shows carnivals and fairs. 

Treat your Fun Pass like cash, as losing it has the same consequence as losing a $20 bill.  Do not punch a hole in your card, bend it, or damage it in any way.  The card readers cannot read damaged or altered cards, which means you will not be able to use the credits on your card, as we will not be able to retrieve them.

If you have questions about the Fun Pass card system when you're at the Fair, please see a customer service representative at the Customer Service booth.  Be sure to keep your card, as your card and any credits on it can be used at most other E. K. Fernandez Shows events.
