J&J BROTHERS | INNOVATION AT PLAY
J&J Amusements began as nothing more than something fun between twin brothers in 1957 who decided to open the first miniature golf center in Utah. Their love of amusements moved them to begin building some of the first fun centers and amusement parks throughout southern and central California. They would build rides and try things, all with the goal of providing more fun to those who visited their centers. When they invented the bumper boat in 1975, they were in love. They patented the bumper boat in the US and became US Coast Guard Certified. In 1990 J&J brought on new partners and began manufacturing concession go karts. And just like the bumper boat, J&J’s line of innovative and durable go karts took off. In 1993, the company was moved from southern California to Salem, Oregon. Today, J&J Amusements’ family of go kart and bumper boat attractions allows us to meet the evolving needs of the amusement industry with our safe and durable amusement products. We are 100% owned by employees – most of whom have been with the company 10+ years – who provide master planning, custom design, manufacturing and theming for complete amusement solutions. For 40 years, J&J Amusements has been manufacturing fun and entertainment attractions that are loved by the entire family. At J&J, we believe one of our advantages is the understanding that at the end of the day, we’re creating fun. Each go kart and bumper boat we manufacture will see sunshine and rain, hear laughter and play, and be enjoyed by families across the world. Our products must be built durable to last and safe to take care of each passenger they hold.
