Learn About Our
First 50 Years...


Since 1965, Bates Bros. Amusement Co has been providing high quality mobile amusement rides and concessions at events throughout Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia.

With over 40 modern rides, we have one of the region's largest selections of thrill machines for riders of all ages. We serve events of various sizes from the largest indoor amusement park and large fairs to church festivals and community events.

Bates Bros. is family owned and operated by Eric and Dee Bates, daughter Amy, and daughter Michelle with husband Brad Dallman. Our midways are managed on-site and each family member is actively involved in daily operations.

Bates Bros. is a leader in ride safety and innovation. We operate a state-of-the-art maintenance facility in Wintersville, Ohio where our equipment is serviced throughout the year by a staff of experienced mechanics and personnel. Visits from event sponsors and industry professionals are encouraged.
