Fun Pass Information

An E. K. Fernandez Shows Fun Pass is required to ride the rides, play games, buy novelties, and purchase food and beverages at the Fernandez food concessions.  The Fun Pass is not valid at the food booths and other activities operated by Kainalu Elementary School, as those activities require carnival scrip.

The minimum purchase of a Fun Pass is $20, which will give you 200 credits on the card.  The initial purchase requires a $20 bill.  However, once you have a Fun Pass, you may reload it with a $1, $5, $10, $20, $50, or $100 bill.  Fun Passes may be purchased and reloaded at a Fun Passes trailer. 

Each Fun Pass credit is equivalent to 10 cents.  $1=10 credits; $5=50 credits; $10=100 credits; $20=200 credits, $50 = 500 credits, $100 = 1,000 creditsach credit is equivalent to ten cents. 

Credits are deducted from the Fun Pass by placing it on the card reader at the ride, game, novelty stand, or food wagon.  Before you stand in line to ride a ride or purchase food, be sure you have enough credits on your card.  You can check the amount of credits on your card at the machines where you purchase and reload Fun Passes, at the yellow Check Balance stations, or at one of the Fernandez food concessions.  If you have enough credits for the activity, the light on the card reader will turn green when you scan your card.  If you do not have enough credits, the red light on the card reader will come on and you will not be able to get on the ride, play the game, or buy food. 

If you have a Fun Pass from the 50th State Fair or any other E. K. Fernandez Shows event, the credits remaining on the card will be valid at the Kailua Carnival. 

If you have multiple cards and want to combine the credits onto one card, you may do so at Customer Service.

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 she 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, as the card readers cannot read damaged or altered cards.  This means you will lose the credits on your card.

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.  No refunds will be issued for unused credits.

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