What are the best tickets in the Sambodromo?

How to get my tickets?

Tickets for the Carnival will be available for pickup at a 3 day period before carnival in our Hospitality Desk. For pickup your ticket is necessary to schedule the time, because it speeds up the process for costumers.

How old a children can watch the parade?

In order to preserve the integrity of the children's hearing system, the Juvenile Court for Children and Adolescents of Rio de Janeiro established a minimum age of 5 years old to enter the Sambadrome. Minors under 5 years old can not enter the sambadrome, even with tickets or accompanied by those in charge. Minors of 5 years old or older must be accompanied by legal guardians and must have a ticket. Do not forget to bring a document to prove their age.

What is the difference between the parades of the Special Group, Acess Group or Champions?

The Special Group is the elite of the samba schools. The two days of the event is the highest point of Carnival and normally these schools have the most exciting sambas and the most excited fans, but the ticket value is the highest.

When the costumes are available for purchase?

We depend on the samba schools and our suppliers. Usually in mid-November, when samba schools have defined their plots, their wings and themes, we have costumes for sale.

What time should I arrive?

The parade starts at 9:30pm and the gates of Sambodromo open at 7pm. The show is long and goes until the morning, so if you prefer to save your energy to watch the last school, we recommend you arrive later, around 9 pm. Remember that in the entrance at 7 pm and at the exit about 6 am increased the flow of people, so if you want to avoid overcrowding, choose another time.

What can I bring to the Sambadrome?

You can take food and drinks to the Sambodromo. Just keep the limit of two 500ml transparent plastic bottles with any drink and two food items (snacks, fruits, sandwiches etc.) per person.

Is it possible to buy food and drinks at the Sambodromo?

Yes. There are several kiosks, snack bars and vendors inside the Sambadrome. Credit and debit cards are accepted.

How to get and return from Sambodromo?

You can go to the sambadrome in several ways. By taxi, Uber, subway or transfer are the most recommended options. We do not recommend that you go by conventional bus as many bus routes change during the parade days and we do not recommend that you go by car as the streets surrounding the sambadrome are closed, making access difficult.
