Fabbri Group is an Italian amusement rides manufacturer based in Calto. They are known for producing a number staple attractions for both amusement parks and funfairs, such as the Booster and the Kamikaze.

History[edit]

Fabbri was founded by Romolo Fabbri in Bergantino, an Italian village which became to home a number of amusement ride producers after World War II.[1] Manufacturing began in 1950 with the Avio (Aeroplane Ride), a ride specifically designed for traveling shows in Italy.[1] Over the following of years, Fabbri would evolve this attraction into the popular Telecombat ride. In the 1970s Romolo's son, Licinio Fabbri, took over direction of the company[citation needed], and expanded sales beyond Italy into the rest of the European continent.[1] The company expanded once again with the founding of FC Fabbri Park Sr in 1990's, with the goal of reaching out to the world market.[1] After years of producing many different rides, the Fabbri Group entered the roller coaster market no later than 1998, with the introduction of a Wacky-Worm type ride.[2] In more recent years, the company has found success in producing large thrill rides such as the Booster, a pendulum ride which has sold over 50 units since 2000.[1] Rather than having one central facility for manufacturing, the Fabbri Group has several facilities that each specialize in their own type of ride, all of which are located in nearby towns.[1]

Notable ride types[edit]
