The State Fair of Texas combines the best of Texas culture, all in the heart of Dallas: fried food, football, live stock, and fun games. To celebrate the biggest event of the year we’re offering the ultimate State Fair experience: CAR-nival Ride. With CAR-nival Ride, you could score a ride for you and up to 2 friends in one of our fair-themed rides to experience some of your favorite games in your Lyft ride.
How to participate:
Unlock CAR-nival Ride by opening the Lyft app, inputting your destination, and then scrolling through the different Mode options past Economy, Luxury, and Extra Seats to select CAR-nival Ride. Once selected, hit the request ride button.
You’ll be able to request a ride in CAR-nival Ride between 11AM and 7PM from September 28-30 and October 5-7. Passengers throughout Dallas will be able to bring the fair experience to them via their Lyft ride - there will be four themed rides with classic carnival games outfitted in the trunks of cars. Passengers will be able to play for the chance to win fair favorites like cotton candy and popcorn, tickets to the State Fair of Texas, and ride credit - including the chance to win up to $1,000 in free rides.
In order to request a ride in CAR-nival Mode, you must be in Dallas between NorthWest Highway and Deep Ellum, and as far west as the Tollway, and as Fair Park (see map below).
Once it goes live, simply tap to request a ride in CAR-nival Mode. If you successfully request a ride, you’ll be able to have a fun fair experience, then you can head to your destination.
