As theme parks and attraction sites around the world prepare to ramp up cleaning and maintenance efforts to reopen safely, Ride Entertainments is offering two services to help – Skycoaster and attraction maintenance.

Skycoaster provides cleaning solutions for flight suites. As Lance Beatty, Skycoaster’s managing director explains: “As our industry faces an unprecedented chain of events, Skycoaster remains open and committed to supporting our customers as you navigate these challenges times.

“We want to especially thank High Energy Sports for their tireless effort to find solutions regarding the sanitisation of our flight suits and establishing a procedure to help guide you during operations. We wish everyone a safe and healthy season and hope to be flying soon.”

Ride Entertainment also offers installation and maintenance services, designed to supplement parks’ maintenance teams or project manage and complete projects so that the required maintenance of rides are completed on time.

Whether it is train rehabs or chain replacements, Ride Entertainment’s installation and maintenance team can assist theme parks to ensure they are up, running and safe when it is time to reopen.



Skycoaster, extreme thrill ride specialists and sister company of Ride Entertainment, hosted its annual Skycoaster seminar at Cedar Point, Ohio, in late September.

The turnout for the event was high, with attendees receiving onsite training from industry experts. Training from Skycoaster’s partners including learning about mile high rigging and cable inspection, KCL engineering lighting systems, Joytech specialised video systems and high energy sports, including flight suit inspection.

Following the training, seminar guests attended a dinner. Attendees also had the opportunity to experience the rides and attractions on offer at Cedar Park, hailed as the “rollercoaster capital of the world.”

Adam Sandy, president of business development at Ride Entertainment, said: “We’ve seen interest continue as we moved the seminar our of classrooms and back to amusement parks so site controllers can learn in a hands-on environment.

“Through the past decade, Ride Entertainment has invested in Skycoaster. The debut of the Sky Sled capped off several years of research and with new products, like lighting and video systems, we work to ensure that Skycoaster increases the bottom line of each owner,” Sandy continued.

Tidal Twister proves a hit at SeaWorld San Diego


SeaWorld San Diego’s new rollercoaster the Tidal Twister is proving to be a hit with visitors of all ages. The coaster opened at SeaWorld San Diego in late May this year.

The horizontal duelling coaster experience is the first Skywarp Horizon from Skyline Attractions at SeaWorld San Diego. The ride was launched in partnership with Ride Entertainment.

According to Ride Entertainment, the attraction has started off well with visitors young and old enjoying riding on the coaster.

As Adam Sandy of Ride Entertainment commented:

“We are honoured that SeaWorld put their faith in us to help deliver a world’s first attraction. In a park with so many different types of coasters, the Skywarp Horizon really defines itself as a different attraction.”

The attraction has a marine theme, centred on coral reef protection and sustainable aquaculture. It takes guests on a journey of twists and turns along a figure of eight track as the trains reach speeds of 30 miles per hour.

Tidal Twister features two trains, each of which holds 16 passengers, who face one another in forward and backward facing seats.

The new rollercoaster is situated next to the resort’s aquarium and Aquaria touch pool.
