Our History

A Family Legacy of Dedication

Ellis Amusement has successfully been operating since 1981- what was once an underdog story has transformed into one of the largest operations in the West due to our unchanging commitment to excellence in sales and service, which is still at the heart of everything we do.

Ellis Amusement started with a spark of intrigue when our founder, Rick Ellis, grew tired of booking rock bands in LA, and wanted to come back home to Idaho, but wasn’t sure where his future would take him. Late one night, he left a band gig to find a line of customers wrapped around a local gas station waiting for something that was obviously drawing a crowd. Wondering what this could be, he looked inside to see that they were all in line for a chance to play the newest rage, one of the first arcades: Centipede. Very shortly following, he left LA, came home with the idea for Ellis Amusement, and the rest is history.

Ellis Amusement was built steadily through the years because of an unwavering commitment to excellence in customer service. Every customer receives our 100% effort and quality, every time, and always will.

The operators of Ellis Amusement now continue the legacy and tradition of excellence with its second generation of owners, Rick and Marylou’s daughter and son-in-law, Ryan and Sydney Harris. They continue to honor the mission of Ellis Amusement, and will carry these values forward to future generations: the foundations of excellence in customer service that built the business, partnerships, and friendships that we love so much.
