Don’t want to wait in lines? A limited number of Midway Express Access passes ($15) allow fairgoers to receive single-day, front-of-the-line access to midway rides. In order to receive front-of-the-line access, customers must also have ride coupons or ride wristbands, which come at an additional cost. Extreme rides are not included.
Extreme rides include the Slingshot (single rider $35, double rider $60) and the Sky Ride (weekday prices one-way $4 and round-trip $6; weekend prices are $5 and $7. Extreme rides do not accept ride coupons or wristbands. Prices per ride vary and are subject to change.
According to tulsastatefair.com, wristbands are not recommended for children under 36 inches because there are a limited amount of rides they can safely ride. Parents with children under 48 inches should check height requirements before purchasing to make an informed decision whether wristbands are the best value for their children.
