River City Carnival is headquartered and operates exclusively in Nebraska. We live and work here, and we take pride in living the Good Life.
Safety is a way of life at River City Carnival. Our NAARSO (National Association of Amusement Ride Safety Officials) certified inspector is also certified in operations, and is onsite daily working alongside our crew to maintain the highest standards in inspection and ride operation procedures.
Our team takes pride in being professional on every level, from the office staff to ride attendants.
Our workers are in uniform with the River City Carnival logo clearly visible at all times while the Midway is open, making it easy to identify us!
If you have a question while you are on our midway, there is always someone available in the ticket booth or on the midway to help you!
Each ride has not only height requirements, but also other safety regulations that must be followed. Please follow the instructions of the ride operator, as well as the rules on the safety signs outside each ride and attraction. Please note that not every ride is available at every event.

You have questions, and we have answers! Please feel free to send us an email at RiverCItyCarnival@gmail.com if your question is not answered here!
I am almost tall enough to meet the height requirement, why won't the operator let me ride?
Each ride has safety and height regulations that are put in place by ride manufacturers to ensure the safety of every rider. The operator isn't just being mean- they are just following the rules and keeping you safe!
Will the rides continue to operate in the rain?
This depends on a variety of factors. Some rides and attractions cannot operate in any type of rainy situation, while others may be able to continue to operate under light rain conditions. We do keep a close watch on the weather, and in the event of any potentially hazardous weather, we will close.
How tall do I have to be to buy an armband?
We generally do not recommend the purchase of an armband for anyone under 36 inches.
How can I get River City Carnival to come to my town/fair/festival/event?
Send us an email at RiverCityCarnival@gmail.com or see our contact section.
Can I purchase tickets/food/play games with my credit or debit card?
We do not have the ability to process credit or debit cards at this time, but we do generally have an ATM onsite.
