The Price Is Right is inviting fans to come on down.

In honor of the game show celebrating its 50th anniversary later this fall, The Price Is Right host Drew Carey announced The Price Is Right Come On Down Tour. The longest-running game show in TV history will be coming to fans in major cities across the U.S. starting on Friday, March 25 with the first stop at Santa Monica Pier in California.

Fans who attend the one-day launch event will get to play Plinko, spin the wheel and compete for a showdown. What’s more, folks will also win prizes that support local businesses with “deep ties” to the original premiere date back in September 1972. After The Price Is Right fans enjoy a game day by the beach complete with a lit up Santa Monica Pier Ferris wheel, viewers will have a chance to win a grand prize of $50,000. According to the show’s website, fans who are at least 18 years of age can enter the sweepstakes one time from March 25 to May 27. A winner’s name will be drawn on May 30.

Upon hearing the happy news, fans couldn’t contain their excitement. “What?! What!! WHATTTT!!!!! 😍😍😍😍😍😍🤩🤩🤩🤩,” one person wrote on Instagram. “OMG I literally HAVE to go When you come to DENVER 🙌🙌🏻🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼,” another added. “See you in Drew’s hometown!! Cleveland rocks!!” a different fan said.

Though the tour will consist of 50 stops at “America’s most iconic locations,” there will only be a handful of sites where fans can participate. It’s important to note that proof of COVID-19 vaccination is required at the door and must be in-hand before entering events. So far, we know the tour is stopping in:

While we don’t know if Drew will be at all of the tour stops, he’s previously expressed how close he keeps the show and fans to his heart. As viewers may know, the actor and comedian was named the successor of longtime host Bob Barker in 2007.

“Hosting The Price Is Right has been a dream job for me,” Drew told Deadline in August 2021. “I really never thought my safe space would be on a sound stage, wearing a mic, cameras on me constantly, and with millions of people watching. But that’s what The Price Is Right is for me. I love it.”
