As we continue to strive to enhance our guests’ experiences and make your visit more enjoyable, we would like to introduce you to MAGIC MONEY. The North Texas Fair & Rodeo will be using one currency throughout our grounds, except for purchases made in the commercial exhibits building. Fair patrons may purchase Magic Money cards from our Magic Money booths that are located throughout our fairgrounds or pay through the Magic Money mobile app. Magic Money can be used to purchase food, drinks, carnival rides, petting zoo, games, dunking booth and fair wear.
Magic Money is simply digital tickets, and the Magic Money app is of simple ease and convenience. So, make sure to download the Magic Money app before you arrive. Scan the code on your device or Magic Money card, and you are ready to go.
THE MAGIC MONEY APP ON YOUR APPLE OR ANDROID SMART DEVICE CAN RELOAD ADDITIONAL FUNDS OR TRACK FUNDS USAGE. YOU CAN ALSO PAUSE THE MAGIC MONEY CARD DIRECTLY FROM THE APP IF IT IS LOST OR STOLEN.
What are Magic Money cards for?
Magic Money is the new and improved way to enjoy the carnival. It is a reusable, reloadable RFID card that is used as payment for carnival rides, games and more. Magic Money is required at all food and beverage locations on the fairgrounds. Magic Money can also be used for pony rides, feed at the petting zoo, dunking booth and fair wear booths.
How do I buy Magic Money?
Magic Money cards are available for purchase onsite. However, you can also buy Magic Money through the Magic Money Mobile App. This will allow you to purchase items or reload your card from your mobile device.
Insider Tip: There are also several vending machines and manned carnival ticket booths throughout the fairgrounds where guests can purchase Magic Money.
What type of cards can I buy?
You can buy a daily unlimited ride wristband, or a pre-loaded card with credits. You may also add credits to your unlimited ride wristbands. Unlimited ride wristbands nontransferable or one for one, meaning only one (1) guest may use the wristband. The initial purchase of the cards includes a $2 fee. Reloads are free! Cards that are loaded with credits are transferable, meaning multiple guests may use the same card.
Insider Tip: If you have small children, please note that children must be 36” or taller to ride many of the rides, including children’s rides. Parents with children under 48″ should pay special attention to height requirements before buying unlimited ride wristbands.
How do I reload my card or check how many credits I have left?
You can reload your card or check your card balance by visiting a Magic Money booth, reload kiosk or by using the app. This is the best way to easily keep track of your credits and reload. Most reload stations accept cash or credit cards.
Can I use my card next year?
Yes, all Magic Money cards will be able to be used next year at the North Texas Fair & Rodeo.
What should I do if I lose my card?
Go to the Carnival Office, located near the entrance to the carnival, or the nearest manned carnival booth. If you have downloaded the Magic Money app, you can go directly to the app and pause the band so additional purchases can not be made.
You may purchase Magic Money packages in increments of $1, $5, $10, $20, $40, $60, $80 and $100 denominations or select a different, more specific amount that fits your needs. Any amount of money can be reloaded on to your card or mobile app.
Magic Money credits are: 1 credit = 1 dollar (after the purchase of the card)
