Art initially began the carnival with two attractions operating in the southeastern area of South Dakota.
Over the years the operating area has grown larger and the number of attractions has increased where now our area of operation includes 10 states and we can offer up to 50 rides, 50 games and 15 food concessions. We also provide our customers with many creature comforts including shaded rest areas with benches, covering for hoses and wires, signs and instructions regarding game and ride rules and operations, but most importantly, easy access to staff members in case of a concern or problem. We have provided a safe, clean, wholesome entertainment environment just as Art B. Thomas envisioned. When you walk our midways you will notice our customers having fun.

idea of providing clean, safe and wholesome family entertainment for its customers.|
