Happy St. Patrick’s day from Great Coasters International!

This week has been quite the exciting week here at the Kentucky office, but finally coming to an end. We have been working full force on White Lightning, and that is most definitely evidenced by how quickly the structure has been going up in Florida! For those of you who haven’t seen, the lift hill and first drop are almost completed, along with the brake run and some of the smaller bents heading towards the turnaround. It has been exciting being able to see the AutoCAD drawings turned into reality at such a rapid rate.

The coolest thing about working in this industry that I have discovered so far is how gratifying it is to work for so many hours on something so complex, and then see each piece come to life. Although detailing steel and the main design have been completed for all our rides opening this year, there are still many things to be done before opening. These next few weeks, I anticipate assembling a ride manual for the various parks and learning more about the mechanical systems that are associated with our rides I hope to be able to provide y’all with some great pictures next time!
