Economical and durable ticket booths are very important for fair grounds, festivals and carnival operators. Thanks to the recent Michigan Association of Fairs and Exhibitions(MAFE) convention, we learned even more about this important and very entertaining business. Local, county and state fairs have a long history, many going back more than a hundred years. They’ve gone through a lot of ticket booths in that time!
There are two basic categories of ticket booths used at fairs; those used by the fairgrounds or fair committee for selling admission or parking, and then the ticket booths used by the operators to sell ride tickets. For both categories, the shelter provided for workers cannot be overlooked.
During fairs, the weather can change quickly and thus, can leave staff exposed to constant wind, harsh sun and sudden rain. The reliable shelter provided by a well built ticket booth improves the work place for your ticket sellers. With that positivity, a better experience will be enjoyed by your customers during interactions with those personnel. And as we all know, happy customers mean more visits to the ticket booth and thus, higher revenues.

Venue or fairground ticket booths can be permanent or portable. When the fair is held at the same location every year, and other events are held there throughout the year, permanently installed ticket booths are typical. For smaller fairs or festivals that share or rent the facility or property, portable booths that can be moved to a barn are more typical. A durable ticket booth is important so that the initial investment lasts regardless of who is moving them around. Par-Kut welded galvanized steel booths are extremely rugged and can easily be moved with equipment already in use at the fairgrounds.
Meanwhile, the ticket booths owned by the amusement companies and carnival ride operators are entirely portable. These ticket booths need to be rugged enough to withstand frequent moves and trips on trailers as the carnivals move from town to town. A slightly elevated ticket booth with a reinforced steel floor is perfect to allow a fork lift to pick up and move from trailer to ground and vice versa. A wheel kit option is also available to move the ticket booth up a ramp onto a trailer.
Both types of ticket booths will have one or more cashier windows, an interior counter-top, electric outlets, lights, treadplate floor, and paint in color of choice. A wide variety of options are available to enhance customer convenience, cash security and operator comfort. Exterior shelves on the ticket booth and optional signage can assist with transactions and way finding. Locking cash drawers, locking ticket windows, unbreakable glazing and floor safes can improve security. Air conditioning and heat will offer a more comfortable work environment for your booth staff.
In any circumstance, a factory assembled, pre-fab steel building from Par-Kut International will meet the need for a good looking, long lasting, permanent or portable ticket booth. Standard ticket booth packages available. Lease terms also available.
