FUN FOR THE ENTIRE FAMILY

and THAT’S why they keep coming back

Held at exciting venues around the province, fun for all age groups, and home to some of the country’s best rides, we are more than just a fun fair – we are a playground for good spirited fun and enjoyment, leaving our patrons with absolutely memorable experiences.

As a trustworthy family business, our top priority is our patrons and the enjoyment they experience at our fair. We aim to ensure that each time you experience the fair it is a memorable, by proving a service that is fun and suitable for the entire family to enjoy together.

First Generation
Tommy Chetty founded Tommy’s World Fair in the early 1940s. He began simply with a single act called the Wall of Death, which earned him a spot in the Durban Museum. Making history, and leaving a legacy behind, he will forever be remembered, and his legacy will live on through his son Joey Chetty.

Second Generation
Joey Chetty witnessed his father turn just one act into a truly successful family business. He and his brothers were all part of the fun fair and each had a key role to play in the running of the business.

Third Generation
Sandy Chetty, along with his brother Duran Chetty assisted their father to run the fun fair. With their help, Tommy’s World Fair has developed and grown to become even more renowned. The family-oriented business has strengthened and become even more successful due to the fact that it offers an experiential service that is suitable for the entire family to enjoy.

Our Company
Our fun fair is a mobile theme park that operates within the Kwa-Zulu Natal region. We have been in operation for over 40 years and adhere to the most stringent safety standards. We currently have 14 rides in operation.

Our company specialises in providing family-orientated entertainment. In essence, we promote communities and people of all ages to come together and enjoy themselves within a safe and secure environment. Our staff are fully trained and experienced, ensuring utmost safety of our patrons.

WE CARE
In every area we bring our fair to, we make it a priority to make an authentic difference to the greater community. We have successfully started “WE CARE”, which is an initiative whereby we invite a local orphanage to spend a day at our fun fair free of charge. We also employ approx. 30 locals in the areas we set up in, as a means of creating part-time employment for the underprivileged.
We are dedicated to adding value to the communities we operate in and really making the happiness aspect that our fair brings tangible for as many people as possible. We aim to spread further across Kwa-Zulu Natal, focusing on setting up fairs in impoverished areas, to bring our experience to those who are unable to afford it.

Our | Services

We have a unique

blend of talent that allows

us to offer such a diverse

range of services.

SCHOOL PACKAGES
We offer the ideal initiative to schools to raise funds. Using the fun fair, we offer various packages specifically catered for the different needs schools may have.
Certain requirements have to be met before we can set up at a school:
• School must have fencing
• Area that the fun fair will be setting up on should be big enough to accommodate all of the rides and the surface needs to be level
Our various school packages allow students to either pay a reduced price for one day during the week to come to the fun fair, or the school can sell tickets and armbands at a special price and get to keep a percentage for the school fund.
We normally charge to go to a venue, however where schools are involved we waive this fee and rather work on offering a package that suits both Tommy’s World Fair and the school involved.
THEMED PARTIES
Have a birthday coming up? Or do you simply wish to celebrate things a little bit differently this time round? Let us create your party/celebration for you!
Our well trained team of staff have the latest and greatest ideas to throw you the perfect party, so avoid the stress of trying to plan a party because Tommy’s World Fair has the perfect package for you!
Whatever your desired theme is, we can make it happen. From Princess Packages, to the Cool Car Carnival, we have something for everyone.

PRIVATE HIRE
Hire any of our rides to give your branding/advertising campaign to give you a spectacular, WOW-factor edge over your competitors.
A perfect option is our Big Wheel ride, proving to be the ideal choice when looking to raise a significant amount of attention and talkability. With a memorising height and colourful appearance, it is definitely sure to stand a cut above the rest. A far more effective option than billboards, the Big Wheel, amongst other Tommy’s World Fair rides will ensure that your message gets across memorably.
Have an event that could do with some Hollywood Sparkle? If so, then our Hi- Roller is the perfect solution. Imported from Las Vegas, Nevada, it is the first of its kind in the country, and is a truly magnificent and unique thrill ride that will successfully allow you to raise the bar with your communications campaign.
