About Us

Phoenix Amusements’ Background

PAI is an interactive game rental company servicing the greater Atlanta metro area as well as many destinations around the United States.

Founded in 1959 by Don Hankinson Sr., Phoenix Amusements started out as a jukebox entertainment provider, arcade operator and route management company. We maintain and service all our own inventory and have done so since our founding. Our focus has always been on the customer and our products. Expanding into new markets as technology has changed over the decades, we started to rent or lease items for the Special Events market including engagement marketing activities.

Today PAI can supply the latest and most in demand classic arcade games, simulators, sports machines and other entertainment, and arrange to have it delivered wherever our customers need it.

We are founding members of the Georgia Amusement and Music Operators Association (GAMOA) as well as long-time members of the Amusement and Music Operators Association (AMOA), the Atlanta Convention and Visitors Bureau, the International Special Events Society (ISES) and the Atlanta Metro Chamber of Commerce.

Our 50+ years in business, experience, planning and customer service are what set us apart from the rest of the industry.

Do you have insurance?

Yes, we do have full coverage insurance.  We have $2M in coverage with $1M in liability insurance.  Unlike other event rental companies, we do not have your home owners insurance cover our rentals (that’s why you’re asked to sign a waiver).

For corporate events, we do supply additional insured certificates, but do ask that you request at least a week prior to your event.

What do you include in your quote?

Our quotes are very detailed and includes photos of the item requested along with a description, electrical needs and dimensions.  If we have all event information such as venue address, event location in venue, load in time, event start and end along with pickup, we will give you an all inclusive price.  Our pricing includes the game setup, game instructions at setup and pickup.  If your event is out of town (Atlanta metro), we typically stay in your event vicinity.  We do not drop and run.  A technician will be on call for the duration of your event.  We do not charge additionally for this service.  We do charge additionally for an on-site technician or an attendant.

How long will my quote take to be processed?

We endeavor to process orders as quickly as possible as we know how exciting it is to get your order promptly, however please allow 24-72 working hours as a guide.  If you need pricing immediately, please call us. We’d be more than happy to supply.

How do I know my order has been placed successfully?

We will send you an acknowledgement email on successful completion of an order on this site.  Please note that an order is a quote or proposal request.  You are not purchasing any items.  This email will detail the quote that you have placed an will give you an overall pricing of your event if we have not contacted you for specifics.

What is your payment policy?

We require a 50% retainer and signed contract to book your event.  The remainder is due either the day of the event or the day we depart Atlanta if travel is required.

Please note that we do not issue templates for customization without a retainer.

We also require a credit card on file even if you pay by check.  This is to cover any costs for damage of our equipment during your event.  We do not process any charges without your prior consent and awareness.
