After witnessing the scope of ETC’s The Ride Works design and manufacturing headquarters, the world’s largest theme park and resort company hired us to manufacture several rides for a branded chain of Family Entertainment Centers to be launched worldwide.
Utilizing our personnel and facilities to design, engineer, fabricate and test products from initial ideas through launch, more than 30 units of four different attractions were created, installed and launched internationally at the FEC’s locations. This included the creation of an original Roller Coaster Simulator attraction.
In addition to installation, field service and support at the Paris and Orlando locations, a 14-person team of full-time The Ride Works manufacturing and support personnel managed the day-to-day operations of these attractions at the Chicago-based center, including installation, replacement, repairs, and preventative maintenance.
Launch Date: June, 1998 – first of 3 locations
Project Length: 8+ years
24 Roller Coaster Simulators
1 Weather Proof Roller Coaster unit for outdoor teaser
12+ other attraction units engineered & manufactured
