Example of a 'carnival idea' found while searching on the Internet:

"Set up a dart game"

It's a great idea, but it doesn't give you much to work with. What if you want ideas on how to set it up because your budget won't support an expensive 'official' dart game booth set from a carnival vendor?

OUR idea listed in the Ultimate Carnival Ideas Resource Guide (Game #22):


The game: The player throws a dart from behind a clearly marked line, pops a balloon and wins a prize.

Ideas and Variations:

  • Make sure that the line to stand behind is clearly marked (for those that like to cross it…). Consider having a second line closer to the target for younger players.
  • Be aware of everything AROUND the booth…for those who may be lousy shots. Make sure that the person working the booth is safely out of the path of any thrown darts.
  • To ensure safety, use sharp darts and full balloons. (Half inflated balloons can bounce dull darts away) If you are blowing up balloons, you'll have to make sure that you blow them up ahead of time and keep the supply nearby. Special hint: The smaller the balloon…the quicker they blow up.
  • A variation is to offer different prizes for different balloon colors or sizes - e.g. the smaller the balloon hit, the bigger the prize or more prize tickets they earn.
  • Make sure that the board you choose easily accepts the darts (it can't be too hard or the darts will ricochet off possibly hitting someone - or just landing someplace you don't want it to)
  • The person working the booth should be the only one handling the darts while not in use. Do not leave darts loose around the area and the worker should hand players the darts as they pay for their turn.
  • You might offer a different number of darts for different prices. For example, one dart for $1, three for $2 and five for $3 (it gives players an incentive to spend more and increase their chance to win.)
  • If you'd rather stay away from sharp darts, consider magnetic darts or suction cup style darts. (Use a sheet of metal found at local hardware or home supply stores).
  • Pictures of balloons can also be placed on the targeting area - you can paint or draw directly on the target or tape up paper targets. Rather than balloons, you can choose an image that relates to your carnival or booth theme - if you have one. For example if you title the booth 'Shoot for the Stars' - then you could use stars, moons or rocket ships as targets.

We make sure that you have enough to work with so that you are able to customize the game to meet your exact needs.
