About Us

Amusement CarnivalsOur background story is based on Chesney Caravans, an iconic Queensland Caravan manufacturer who started building vans in Brisbane in the 60s.

These old-world charm caravans are purchased and transformed into unique amusement vans holding laughing clowns, lucky ducks, water racers, water blasters, etc.  We like them so much more than the modern carnival vans because they are smaller, have the old-world charm and we get to have fun and interact with our customers on the same level as them. Contact us for details.

The vans contain the most popular sideshow alley games.  From these we can add Balloon Burst, Nerf Baster Gallery, High Striker or others to create a sideshow alley suitable for any event.

We service Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast areas and more. From Byron Bay to Bundaberg including Robina, Southport, Yatala, Caloundra, Mooloolaba, Noosa Heads and out west to Ipswich, Toowoomba, Warwick and Roma.

A current ASSA vanAll Sideshow Alley Amusements has operations in the Gold Coast, Brisbane and Sunshine Coast.  We are an amusement company that started operations in 1995 and have attended thousands of school fetes, carnivals, street and music festivals, private parties and corporate events.
