Alberto Zamperla

As possibly the industry’s most prolific ride manufacturer, Zamperla’s products can be found in theme parks and amusement parks across the globe.

Son of founder Antonio Zamperla and a member of the IAAPA Hall of Fame, Alberto made great strides in the US after establishing a sales and spare parts office in New Jersey back in the 1970s. In 1998, Zamperla was chosen to supply rides for Disneyland Paris. The company now supplies almost the complete spectrum of amusement rides, with increasingly imaginative designs and concepts. Often it will kit out a full themed area of a park, and sometimes an entire park.

The family’s circus and travelling cinema roots make Zamperla well suited to operate Luna Park at Coney Island in New York, and the upcoming Luna Farm in Bologna. With Alberto’s son Antonio Zamperla now serving as chief innovation officer, the Zamperla name should continue to be a household name in the industry for years to come.
