About Phoenix Amusements


PAI is an interactive game rental company servicing the greater Atlanta metro area as well as many destinations around the United States. You’ll notice that some of our competitors do not mention who they are or how long they have been in business. Not us!

Founded in 1959 by Don Hankinson Sr., Phoenix Amusements started out as a jukebox entertainment provider, arcade operator and route management company. To this date, we still get requests to service juke boxes sold in the 60s!
(We do not service equipment as a part of our offerings)

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.

Phoenix Amusements was one of the first in the state of Georgia to become actively involved in the Georgia Amusement & Music Operators Association along with Music Operators of America.
