What are the best tickets in the Sambodromo?

The Sambodromo was built to provide a great show for the viewers. Each type of ticket has benefits.

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, Access Group, and 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.

What time should I arrive?

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. The entrance is from 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?

Here is the list of what is allowed and what is not allowed to bring:

- Each person may bring up to two food items (sandwiches, fruits, cookies)
- Each attendee may carry a maximum of two plastic bottles of any beverage, each 500 ml

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

Yes. There are several kiosks and vendors on-site. Payments are accepted via credit card, debit card and cash.

How to go to and from the Sambadrome?

We recommend that you go to the Sambadrome by taxi, subway, or transfer. We do not advise taking conventional buses as many routes change during the parade days. We also do not recommend going by private car as there is no nearby parking, and the streets around the Sambadrome are blocked, making access difficult.
