Our Engineering Expertise In Amusement Park Rides and Attractions
One example of our engineering in amusement rides is a drop tower we supported. We functioned as the ride engineer for a European drop tower manufacturer installing a ride in the US that was located close to the coast. We validated the ride with FEA (including redesigns when required), physical testing, on-site installation support and ride commissioning support. Within the first two months of the ride being opened, a category 1 hurricane hit land close to the installation site with 76 mph winds and the site experienced a magnitude 5.8 earthquake. Quite the unexpected tests, but the ride survived everything just fine.
If you have a ride that needs proper certification. Trust the experts at MJ Engineering to get you everything you need and more to ensure that you have the perfect ride.
