Prepare to drop some knowledge next time you visit the carnival.

Summary: I collected data at the carnival for a full day. Then I used that information to figure out which games are the biggest scams using science to analyze them and show you how to beat them. I also figured out how much the carnival actually pays for the prizes so even if you win, you lose. And then I visited the carnival with my professional baseball playing buddy to dominate all the games. It worked well.



I make videos like this once a month all year long while supplies last:

This guy explains things more clearly than my teacher...

At the PNE in Vancouver, I won one of the huge prizes at one of their "impossible" games. They had a weighted baseball that flew like a knuckleball, and you had to break plexiglass bottles. I didn't tell them before hand I was a pitcher who threw an amazing knuckleball. Needless to say after I missed my first throw and realized the pattern, things didn't go the way the carnie expected. I still have my 6 foot tall penguin to this day.

As a mechanical engineer who spent years studying these concepts, I’ve understood them now even more thanks to these videos. Thank you Mark

Lol your wife’s reaction was great! Thanks for explaining this so thoroughly. I knew they were scams but this tells exactly why.

I remember reading somewhere that they will have some employees walk around with armfuls of those giant prizes or push them in a cart or something to make everybody else believe that it is possible to win those things on a regular basis.
This guy explains things better than a "trained" teacher in less than 10 minutes. Some of my teachers don't even get to explain something like that in a 1 hour lesson.

I worked at an amusement park. One day there was a terrible earthquake. The entire park was leveled to the ground. The only thing left standing were those milk bottles.
I don’t even go for the games and prizes…..I go at night time for the lights, the sounds, the smell, and there’s something nostalgic about being at a fair or carnival with someone you love being with. Can’t beat it. It’s very romantic.
I must say that after having worked in an amusement park and in several of these types of games there is a better way to handle the peach basket one. Throwing the ball at an angle (at least 45 degrees if you can manage it) so that it hits the side of the basket will dissipate the kinetic energy by having the ball roll around the inside. I was told to encourage players to do the very same thing and would demonstrate for anyone who was patient enough to listen to me before making their first throw (Not many). I would spend all day in the corner of the booth throwing the ball into the baskets and making every single one no matter how far away. It never ceased to amaze me how few would ever listen.

Another thing I noticed that you didn’t see/mention: the standard three point shot that most people are used to is a high school distance. That is measured at 19 ft 9 inches. The NBA three point is 23 ft 9 inches. So having a carnival shot at 28 ft is approaching half court. It’s VERY difficult for most people to make. Just something I noticed. Great vid!

On the ladder one, does it count as a loss if you tip, or only if you fall off? If the latter, then tipping over to be on the underside of it would be the winning strategy, if you're strong enough, because then it becomes less a near-impossible test of balance, and more a modest test of strength and endurance.
It's heartbreaking to know that most things you enjoyed as a kid were meant to trick you and manipulate you

Having the speed gun under clocked isn't "borderline fraudulent". It's straight up fraudulent and hopefully they get sued over it
You're wife's reaction was priceless! Make sure you keep that clip available the next time the carnival comes to town. 😉

Mark, you are hilarious, full of science, a great entertainer, and maybe the best science TRvidr around. Except maybe Physics Girl. She's not hilarious but she does Great Physics! Thank you, Mark. Bring back the squirrels!
Important to keep in mind the reason the prizes are so cheap for them is cause they buy in large volumes. If you were to just buy one it would cost you a lot more.

I’ve seen a guy walk up the ladder standing on two legs (we thought he was David Blaine) so what this guy says about thinking of it as a tightrope really checks out.
mark rober is one of those people who if they were asked, "whats 1 + 1", he would explain the whole standard mathamatical system. Dont take this as an insult, love ur vids <3
