Daryl Barr started in the amusement ride business in September 1997 with a set of Pacer Karts (electric Go Karts). The business was known as Western District Pacer Karts. With the popularity of the Karts came requests for more rides.
Daryl expanded the business to include Zap Zone, a laser tag game played in a giant inflatable “Spaceship”. Over time Daryl grew the business, with more rides saw a new name; Barr’s Amusements.
The business now has 18 rides at its disposal and with many contacts in the amusement rides business, Barr’s Amusements can organise big rides like the Sizzler, Dodgem Cars, and more. With contacts for Clowns, Face Painters, Carnival games, Fairy Floss, Ice Cones and Popcorn, Barr’s Amusements can arrange the complete package. We even have access to wristbands and tickets and can offer a seller of these for you.
We find that fete organisers prefer to deal with one person in organising rides and attractions. This relieves the stress of dealing with different operators and making numerous phone calls to check whether they are coming, or whether they are on time.
With over 20 years experience in fetes and festivals, Daryl and the Barr’s Amusements team are only too willing to help out committee members where they need it most.
