Fun Pass Information
FUN PASSES WILL BE SOLD AT THE FAIRGROUNDS ON TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY (SEPTEMBER 6 & 7) FROM 10AM TO 6PM AND ON THURSDAY FROM 10AM.  BUY EARLY AND AVOID WAITING IN LINE TO BUY YOUR FUN PASS AT THE FAIR.

E.K. Fernandez Shows has converted to a Fun Pass card system that requires the purchase of a Fun Pass to pay for admission, ride the rides, play games, purchase food and beverages, and buy novelties.  The number of credits loaded onto your card depends upon the amount of money you spend.

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

If you want to purchase $40 worth of credits, press $20 twice. If you press $20 + $10 + $10 you will receive 380 credits (200 + 90 + 90) instead of 400 credits.

The Fun Pass may be purchased at kiosks located at the entrance to the Fair using cash, credit card, or debit card.  There are two videos on the home page; one that demonstrates how to purchase and reload a Fun Pass and one that demonstrates how to use a Fun Pass.  We suggest that you watch both of these videos before coming to the Fair.

Credits will be removed from your card by placing it on the card reader at the admission stand, ride, game, novelty stand, and food station. Before standing in line to ride a ride or buy food, be sure you have enough credits on your card.  You can check the amount of credits on your card at yellow Check Balance devices located throughout the fairgrounds or at the Fernandez food wagons.   If you have enough credits for the activity, the green light on the card reader will come on when you scan your card.  If you do not have enough credits, the red light will come on and you will not be able to get on the ride, buy food, or play a game.  You can reload your Fun Pass at the Purchase/Reload kiosks on the fairgrounds. 

You may have your own individual Fun Pass, or you may share a Fun Pass with family or friends.  If sharing a Fun Pass, you must scan it once on the card reader for each person.  For example, if a mother has two young children with her and purchased one Fun Pass, she will need to scan her card three times on the card reader at the ride.

Do not punch a hole in, bend, or damage your Fun Pass.  The card readers cannot read damaged or altered cards.  This means you will lose the credits on your card, as we cannot retrieve them from the system if the card is damaged.

Treat your Fun Pass the same as cash, as losing a Fun Pass has the same consequence as losing a $20 bill. 

Do not throw away your Fun Pass, as any remaining credits may be used at other EK Fernandez Shows events or at next year's Big Island Fair.  No refunds will be issued for unused credits.

If you have questions about the Fun Pass when you are at the Fair, please visit our Customer Service booth.
