Buy Now and Save: Mega Pass is on sale for lowest price of the year

SPRINGFIELD, IL – With warmer days just around the corner, this is the perfect opportunity to take advantage of the Illinois State Fair’s Spring Savings Spectacular! Many fairgoers do not realize now is a great time to take advantage of money and time saving offers such as discount admission booklets and Mega Passes. The Illinois State Fair is an annual end of the summer tradition that provides the ultimate entertainment experience for the young and old with thrills, chills, and shrills.  Whether you want to spin, flip, scramble or scream, the Illinois State Fair has the ride for you.

The Mega Pass is the ultimate savings featured at the Illinois State Fair.  A Mega Pass provides fairgoers with unlimited rides at the Carnival Midway and Adventure Village every day of the fair.  (Giant Slide, Sky Glide, and Tram not included).  Right now, Mega Passes can be purchased at the Emmerson Building on the state fairgrounds, by phone (217-782-0775), or online at for the low price of $70.

Buckle up and hang on!  All new this year, the Illinois State Fair will expand its carnival footprint with the addition of a rollercoaster, the Bullet Train.  This new freeform rollercoaster will be a top attraction for the 2018 fair.  The ride sends fairgoers 33-feet in the air for a series of turns, curves, and drops.  “This will be the first year the fair will have a rollercoaster on the grounds,” said State Fair Manager, Luke Sailer.  “Fairgoers can soar to new heights aboard this centerpiece of the Carnival Midway.  It’s just another reason why a Mega Pass will be a must have item at the 2018 Illinois State Fair.”

Fairgoers will want to act fast, as this hot deal will not last.  The Illinois State Fair Mega Pass is available until July 31st for just $70.  Come August 1st, the price will increase to $90 through the end of the fair.
