A Carnival Life

Twin brothers, Luke and Christopher Hennessey, run their family’s amusement business, March Amusements.

Their family have been in the carnival industry for four generations, and their grandfather and father are still involved in the business.

March Amusements rides appear in at least 50 shows a year (mostly regional agricultural shows and fairs).

At the Royal Easter show they have two rides: The Skywalker (which they purchased in November of last year) and the Wave Swinger.

SkillsOne chats to Luke Hennesey about what's involved in operating rides and travelling around the country!
