In the early 1960′s, Bob Ottaway, who had grown up around his grandfather’s Joyland Park in Wichita, purchased a few carnival games and began to earn his living as a “carnie.” In 1964, his wife Gwynneth and three young children joined him on the road. Through the years and plenty of hard work the small company grew.
Bob Ottaway died in 1988 and his children continued running the carnival and adding new rides. As the business grew, so did the family. Currently Ottaway Amusements is managed by Danny Ottaway, Vicki Flattery and her husband, Chris.
Our season runs from April to October and includes thirty locations in Kansas and Oklahoma. We offer eighteen rides, eleven games and three food concessions.
Ottaway Amusement Company has provided fun, family entertainment for over 50 years and strives to awe and thrill the next generation.
