West Coast Amusements was founded in 1962 by our current President, "Bingo" Hauser, who has been in show business since the mid forties. Raised and educated in Brandon, Manitoba, Bingo started traveling with carnivals at a very early age and became well versed in the business by operating a number of rides and concessions.
When he first went out on his own Bingo started an animal show, which is where the Lion in the WCA logo comes from. Bingo eventually sold the animals to zoos, bought a Merry Go Round and gradually built West Coast Amusements into the major Midway operation it is today.
Robert and Wendy Hauser, son and daughter-in-law of Bingo and Jackie Hauser, have created their own Unit and Business which is exclusive to West Coast Amusements' operations and fair runs. Bob and Wendy have built an efficient, clean and safe show bringing many new innovations to the traveling amusement industry. Bob manages all operations while Wendy manages the show office.
Stephanie and Rino Buttazzoni, daughter and son-in-law of Bob and Wendy Hauser, also play a role in West Coast Amusements' midway operations. Rino is a fully certified Heavy Duty Mechanic and Stephanie owns and operates two Cotton Candy trailers, a Pizza trailer and Slushie stands.
Robbie Jr., son of Bob and Wendy Hauser, travels on Grandma Jackie's Unit. Robbie owns his own Concession Business and has started purchasing rides as well as operating ten game concessions and managing the entire show.
Jaclyn and Darcy Benson, daughter and son-in-law of Bob and Wendy Hauser, travel on their parents' Unit. Jaclyn helps her mom in the office and manages a Game while Darcy is a forman of two Rides and is learning how to run the operation from his father-in-law Bob.
