Dora's Carnival Adventure is a flash game based on Dora the Explorer cartoon series. In this game, one can pick a treasure chest and then fill it with treasures they win by playing carnival games. Choose a treasure chest, and then select a place to play. Each carnival game differs and each has rewards that add up to treasures that go in their own personalized treasure chest. At the carnival, for instance, one can play air hockey, a crane game, and a slide race to win tickets that one can trade in for prizes, such as printable games. Dora's Carnival Adventure game features six treasure chests which act as profiles.



  • Swiper's Air Hockey: Play a game of air hockey against Swiper. Each time a goal is scored, a ticket is won. The first player to ten points wins.
  • Benny's Bowling*: Play a ten-frame game of bowling with Benny and get the best score. A ticket is won each time all the pins are knocked down. The player gets two chances in ten rounds.
  • Slippery Slide Race: One can choose a character (Dora, Boots, Swiper, or Benny) for their sled and race down the slide while trying to beat the other two characters to the bottom to win tickets.
  • Color Wheel*: Choose a color and Señor Tucán will spin the wheel. If it stops on the chosen color, a ticket is won.
  • Tico's Bumper Cars*: Bump against the other players across four levels before they bump against you. Bumping into one of the flashing cars earns tickets.
  • Thirsty Dolphins*: Spray water at the dolphins to win tickets.
  • Boots' Crane Game: Grab various boots from the crane to win tickets or see something silly.
  • Roberto's Bubble Game*: Play a Pac-Man game where Robot Bird has to clear a maze while avoiding bubbles. Grabbing batteries enhance Robot Bird's power so she can pop the bubbles. Tickets are awarded if Robot Bird touches one or if a level is cleared. If a bubble touches Robot Bird, a light will go out. If all three lights go out, the game is over.
  • Balloon Race*: One can choose a character (Tico, Boots, or Isa) for their balloon and spray air with an air gun while trying to beat the other two characters to the top to win tickets.
