West Coast Amusements is not like your regular carnival troupe. The company is dedicated to being one of the country’s leading travelling amusement companies.

West Coast Amusements is a Canadian company with offices and winter quarters in Langley. Company presidents Bingo and Jackie Hauser have lived in Langley for more than 50 years. They specialize in supplying amusement equipment to provide safe, clean, family fun at a wide variety of fairs, exhibitions, rodeos, special events and other promotional activities.

They employ approximately 350 people every year, and have four individual units that travel all over Western Canada and Washington State.

West Coast Amusements was founded in 1962 by Bingo Hauser, who has been in show business since the mid 1940s. Raised and educated in Brandon, Manitoba, Hauser started travelling 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.

Rides to check out at Agrifair will include: Super Shot, Fireball Zipper, Cliff Hanger, Tilt a Whirl, Scooters, Hurricane, Spider, Ferris Wheel, Sizzler, Ghost Party, Dragon Wagon, Raiders, Coaster, Puppie Roll (new), Berry Go Round, Bulgy the Whale and the Crystal Palace Mirror House.
