Covered Box

Covered Box is the new ticket at the Sambodromo. It's an INDIVIDUAL SEAT at a box that holds up to 12 people with comfortable cushioned seats in a decorated space. Located at the Row D level, the new Covered boxes offer a higher view over the rows A, B and C open boxes, also known as frisas. The covered tent is a must. It makes sure no one gets wet in case of rain, which was a privilege only camarote ticket holders used to have. In test for the upcoming carnival celebration in 2016, the covered boxes are available only at the coveted sector 7 for now, right in the middle of the sambadromo and in front of the jury. In a nutshell, it's a little camarote with the comfort and wide views of the frisas. Much cheaper too.
Prices Per Person in a Covered Box (frisa) that accommodates 12 people.
