SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — Time is running out to snag the best discount for carnival rides at the Illinois State Fair.

In an announcement made Wednesday, fair officials said the price of the carnival Mega Pass will increase from $65 to $75 on Monday.

The Mega Pass is good for unlimited rides at the Carnival Midway and Adventure Village for all 11 days of the fair.

Amy Bliefnick is manager of the Illinois State Fair. She says the pass is "a fantastic deal for fairgoers."

The pass doesn't include the cost of admission or to ride the giant slide, sky glide or the tram.

The fair runs from Aug. 7 through Aug. 17 at the fairgrounds in Springfield.
