It all started in 1939 -- at the NY World's Fair. When the event was closing, John and Morris Vivona negotiated with a man to purchase his Ferris Wheel. From those humble beginnings, Amusements of America has grown into one of the largest carnival companies in the US.
Now in its second and even third generations, the company travels the country, bringing smiles to the faces of millions of Americans each year, and helping dozens of non-profits raise much needed revenue for their communities.
Their two units travel from Vermont to Florida and everywhere in between. They have had decades long relationships with county fairs and community festivals and they continue to bring the finest amusement rides available to the events they play.
Along with state of the art food stands and wonderful prizes, Amusements of America has brought the joy of the carnival midway to generations of guests.
