Park History and Information

Sam’s Fun City is family owned and operated by Richard and Terry Sanfilippo. The park is named after the Sanfilippo’s daughter Samantha. In 1996 after a successful career in environmental science & engineering, Richard wanted to redirect his energy towards creating a family focused business in Pensacola, Florida. After a significant planning period the first phase of the park opened in September of 2000. The park has continued to grow over the years by adding Bumper boats and mini golf in 2001, phase 1 of the arcade in 2003, a water park in 2005 and an expanded arcade in 2008. With over 40 rides, slides and attractions, Sam’s Fun City is the largest Fun Park on the central Gulf Coast.
