Well I spent $41 including entrance fee but that was only for myself (2 beers at $5.00 each, 1 ear of corn at $3.00, $5.00 camel ride, $3.00 paintball game).
Souvenirs, it depends on what you want. They have from $10.00 necklaces to $175 corsets (which the lady didn't tell me was that much until she booted me into it and I liked it - but didn't buy it...I can buy a push up bra for cheaper).
Food, I think the most expensive thing was that ugly turkey leg at $7.00.
Rides mostly were $5.00 to $6.00 (camel ride, bungee jump, a couple of house mazes to go through). Since I don't have kids my day was cheaper. My friend had her two kids there and she probably spent $100 total on just rides they wanted to do, food and a couple of small souvenirs.
I'd say plan on at least $30.00 per person extra after the entrance fee just to be on the safe side.
