Wright’s Amusements Carnival at Ski Hi
Wright’s Amusements has been providing carnival entertainment for more than 43 years. Family and fun — these two words define Wright’s Amusements like no other carnival company in America! In 1962, Floyd Wright and his two brothers, Frank and Charles, launched a traveling carnival that put family fun first. A half century later, Floyd Wright’s nephew, John Ring, runs the show in the same treasured tradition. “My life — my heritage—is all about making sure people have a great time,” says Ring. “What better ‘job’ is there?” Wright’s Amusements is based in Elbert, CO, but the carnival travels year-round to state and county fairs, shopping malls, festivals, and special events, entertaining thousands in Colorado, New Mexico, and Texas. From the children’s carousel to the newest thrill ride, from the midway to the concessions, it’s family fun. Winner of the prestigious Outdoor Amusement Business Association (OABA) Circle of Excellence Award, Wright’s Amusements is grateful for the recognition of our industry. But they’re most proud of the smiles they see on family faces every day, in every city, at every carnival they create.
Wednesday through Sunday
Help the local community food bank and have fun at the same time! On Wednesday, bring two cans of food to the carnival ticket office and obtain an “all day” pass for $20. Last year, it was estimated Wright’s Amusements and the Stampede Committee raised more than $400 in canned food items.
