Swing Ride ont he Stampede Midway

Outside, there are several rides for the kids along the midway. There are lots of rides in the main Midway that are suitable for older children. For the younger kids, there's a Kids Midway north of the Stampede Corral (towards Olympic Way & Downtown) with rides appropriate for smaller children.

To reduce the cost of the Midway, there are Family Packs of ride tickets at a (somewhat) discounted price. If you can plan ahead, your best bet is discounted tickets from Safeway, usually available in June.

Wednesday of Stampede is Kids Day with free early (before 9 am) admission to the grounds.
