The History and Science of Carnival Games
June 6, 2020, 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm$26 – $39
“Step right up! Step right up and win a big prize!” A carnival barker’s famous words! Carnival games have a rich history and are played not only at traveling carnivals, but also at charity fundraisers, amusement arcades, state fairs, local festivals and even family gatherings. Is there a science to winning these games OR is it all luck? Which games should we play for the best chance at winning? Are these games rigged to scam you? We will turn into investigators and build confidence as we pull back the layers on the amusement industry while revealing the answers! Popular games will be available for play and analysis like: Balloon Darts, Ring a Bottle, Duck Pond, String Pull, Bean Bag Cans, Money Machine, Fish in a Bowl and Fool the Guesser. This is a drop-off class.
