In 1947, Mannie and Melba Davis, along with Mannie’s parents, Joe and Martha Davis, leased five rides from Eyerly ride manufacturer out of Salem, OR. In the early years, the four Davis’s booked the equipment with other carnival operators at locations from California to Texas. They operated as far south as the Mexican boarder. After a few years of long seasons, the plan changed. By 1950, they were purchasing the five rides they had previously leased and they incorporated in their home state of Oregon.The carnival now plays over 60 dates, including events in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Arizona, Nevada and Utah.

Along with at least fifty monkeys, you will find a rain forest, endangered species, an aviary, an electrical train and children’s zoo right in the middle of the Orange County urban jungle.

The Zoo grew, always emphasizing quality rather than quantity, and soon became one of the most popular attractions in the City of Santa Barbara.
