F.A.Q

Q: Does It Cost Anything To Have Amusements At An Event?

A: Very little. In fact, your organization stands to gain substantially by sponsoring a festival or carnival. Kissel Bros. will pay your organization a percentage of the gross ride ticket sales and a flat rate for each game or food concession. Your only expense might be for electric and water services for our living accommodations plus security, restrooms, and refuge containers.

Q: Does Kissel Bros. Provide It’s Own Insurance?

A: Yes. It is State law to carry midway liability insurance. Ohio’s inspectors will not even process an annual permit without proof of adequate insurance coverage. Kissel Bros. carries liability insurance which surpasses the State minimum requirements and provides each of our sponsors with a certificate of such coverage naming the sponsor as additional insured. Of course, we recommend that you have a specialist review the certificate and consider additional insurance if he or she suggests.

Q: Does Kissel Bros. Provide It’s Own Electricity For The Rides?

A: Yes. We have 5 mobile generators capable of supplying over 1 thousand kilowatts of combined output. We also have one of the most modern electrical distribution systems in the industry which meets, or exceeds, the latest version of the National Electric Code.

Q: How Far In Advance Does Kissel Bros. Schedule It’s Events?

A: Our schedule consists of a great number of fairs and festivals with long term agreements. Therefore our schedule changes very little from year to year. However, there are often available weeks during the early Spring and Fall due to calendar changes. If you would like us to consider your event, please contact us as soon as possible. Our schedule is normally completed before the first of the year.

Q: Does Kissel Bros. Rent Rides For Private Functions?

A: Yes. However, short term rentals involve substantial overhead expenses which must be passed to the person or organization renting the equipment. It is often a better value to consider a longer rental period.

Rentals should also be scheduled during periods when the ride of interest will not be in use at one of our scheduled events. Removing a ride from an event for rental would increase the rental expense proportional to the amount of revenue the ride would have generated at the event.
