We Have a New Ride Company - McGinnis Amusements!

MGinnis Amusements logoRides, Food, and Games Since 1949

For over 6 decades, McGinnis Amusements has been a full service carnival company providing amusement rides, food and game concessions.

Operating primarily in northern Ohio and Pennsylvania, McGinnis Amusements features rides for adults and children alike, as well as myriad food and game concessions, which they set up at fairs, festivals, and private events from April through October. All of their rides are modern, safe, and well-maintained.

The McGinnis philosophy has always been to provide exceptional service and top notch entertainment to those within the communities they serve. Having maintained a sterling record for over 30 years, their longevity speaks to their success, and Middleburg Heights is delighted to feature them at the 2022 Summer in the City Festival!
