With the Prudential Marina Bay Carnival here, it's time to let go, unwind and have some fun with your friends and family, footloose and fancy-free! To experience the 50 thrilling rides, games and contests without delays and hassles, we're introducing Carnival RFID Cards for seamless payments. 

Do away with cash payments and just swipe your card at the rides. This not only helps you save time but also ensures that you don't always have to carry a lot of cash around. Continue reading below to find out more about the Carnival RFID cards.

What is a Carnival RFID Card?

This is a card that works on RFID technology. RFID uses electromagnetic fields to automatically identify and track tags attached to objects. The tags contain electronically-stored information. It is one of the most common methods of automatic identification and data capture.

Where can I purchase a Carnival RFID Card?

The card is easy to get once you're at the carnival. Go to carnival's box offices at the gate or the top-up boxes to purchase yours. Alternatively, purchase online via this website. After purchasing your credits online, an electronic ticket with a unique embedded QR code will be sent to your email address. Present the electronic ticket via your phone or tablet at our box offices onsite between 22 December 2018 to 24 March 2019 to claim your card. Kindly note the blackout dates and timings mentioned above

How much does it cost?

The thing about Carnival RFID cards is that they don't burn your pocket while providing an easy way to make payments. Each card costs $10 and this purchase amount is immediately credited into your card. In other words, S$1 = 1 carnival credit.

Where do I get to use the card?

Here's the catch. The Carnival RFID Card can only be used for payment at all carnival rides and games. Some of these games include The Star Flyer, Das Fun Shiffe, Mach 5 and Wave Swinger. For food and beverages, you will have to make payment by cash or cards (where accepted).

Where do I top-up my card and is there a specific top-up amount?

You can top-up your Carnival RFID Card at the box offices (found at the entrance gate) or top-up boxes found in the carnival. There is no specific or minimum top-up amount required for the card.

You can use your card till 24th March 2019. Also, keep in mind that this card is non-refundable so ensure that you make the most out of it if you're buying it. 

We're always striving to make your experience at the Prudential Marina Bay Carnival more pleasant and fun. The Carnival RFID Card is one initiative to help with this. It's easy to purchase, use and recharge, and therefore, makes it a handy payment method for both friends and family.
