Carnival ticket prices

Ticket Information for Carnival 2024/25 will be available soon. Please see below for 2023/24 information.

Advance booking is strongly advised, and all tickets are booked for a specific day, and are non-refundable - but if you book through the Carnival website, you can log in to your order at to swap the date of your visit if you require.

Tickets will be available on the door, subject to availability, however it is expected that some days will sell out, so please book online if possible as we cannot guarantee availability on the door. Tickets are also less expensive if booked online before 23:59 the night before your visit.

To make booking in advance better value for you, we've scrapped all booking fees, and the earlier you book, the cheaper your tickets will be. Tickets purchased on the day of your visit (online or on the door) will be more expensive, so book before midnight the day before your visit to save.

Tickets include entry into the hall and 10 vouchers per person unless stated otherwise. Children aged 3 and under require a free ticket (no vouchers included) to enter - you can book these online with the rest of your tickets.

For information on Carer tickets and Ride Access Passes, please view our Accessibility Guide.

*Please note you can arrive at any time during your booked session - you do not need to arrive at the start of your session.*


  • One voucher per ride
  • Two vouchers per stall (please note some stalls only accept cash)
  • Three vouchers for inflatable play (per child, up to the age of 12. Maximum height 1.5m)

Vouchers can only be used on the day they are purchased, and are non-refundable.

Please note we do not offer a Blue Light/NHS discount, and Young Scot cards must be Young Scot branded - the unbranded National Entitlement Card is not accepted for the Young Scot discount.
