Sam's Amusements was started in 1990 by Sam Whitaker, based in Oklahoma. Sam started playing fairs and festivals in Oklahoma operating nine rides, one food trailer and eight games. Over the next twenty years Sam expanded the route to include Kansas, Missouri, Iowa, Nebraska and Texas. As the route grew so did the number of attractions to nineteen rides, fourteen games and three food concessions. As you see on this website by the testimonials, Sam's Amusements is a honest, clean, well respected carnival and we are very proud of that.
In 2009 Sam took on partners, Gary and Jodi Montgomery to help operate the carnival. With the new partnership comes a renewed enthusiasm to continue making the carnival one of the best run shows in the midwest. In 2010 we have added a new attraction an Eli 16 Ferris Wheel, which we are all very excited about. In the future we will continue to update and improve on an already beautiful show.
