How to stimulate the ride manufacturer to stay on the rails. (
Small fortune enterprises)--
\"Is this a roller coaster?
Asked the man behind me.
This is a reasonable question.
At Universal Studios Orlando, in order to take a car called Mummy revenge, we were surrounded by the decoration of an Egyptian tomb, next to the waiter dressed as a member of a malicious cult.
Over our heads, a row of screens showed previous passengers screaming in terror.
The only sign that we are going to be on a roller coaster is a sign that we are going to experience \"sudden and dramatic acceleration, tilt, descent and backward movement \".
\"Welcome to the world of top rides, the company has designed mummy revenge and 30 other major theme park attractions, each of which has about a million passengers per year.
Titan for $11. 5 billion U. S.
Theme park industries such as Universal and Disney (
World Top 500 DIS)
In the battle for market share.
The struggle led the prime minister, based in melesville, Maryland.
He is the busiest steel roller coaster designer in the United States. He has 40 employees and earns $80 million a year.
The Premier has mastered the technology to keep it dreaming of more thrilling rides.
\"The guests are very complicated now,\" said 48-year-old prime minister Jim sayi . \".
\"Their expectations are high.
\"Of course they are looking forward to the stimulus, but they are also asking for safety.
If, as in the past, the Prime Minister messed up the product, the result could be disastrous.
Compared to customers and competitors, Premier is relatively new to the rollercoaster scene.
The company was founded by Peter Schnabel in 1994, when he was operating North American operations for Swiss roller Intamin AG
The roller coaster giant that controls the global market for a quarter.
Schnabel went out on his own and asked Seay, a promising young amusement park executive responsible for developing new rides for the six flags.
Schnabel ordered him one.
Ticket to Maryland and take him on navy T-34 trainer.
\"If you join the Prime Minister, we can fly every day,\" Schnabel told Seay . \".
This is an offer that Seay cannot refuse.
In his spare time, he surf, ride ATVs and fly his own plane.
\"I didn\'t even ask him what his salary was,\" Seay said . \".
\"I said, \'Oh, okay, that\'s it.
\"A year later Schnabel had cancer and sold the company to Seay, who is still the only owner. (
Schnabel, who subsequently recovered, is now the executive vice president. )
From the beginning, Schnabel and Seay understood the key to the success of the roller coaster.
Every new attraction must provide something unique.
Take the prime roller coaster recently opened at maximum rpm.
It diverts the car to the wheel.
The shape of the elevator, when it lifts the car to a higher part of the track, it rotates.
When the car rolled down from the elevator, the passenger could not see the track in front --
So it felt like they were going into space.
\"The Prime Minister is very innovative,\" said Bill Lincoln, Secretary of the American Roller Coaster Enthusiasts Club, a fan club for amusement park riders. \"It\'s the go-
For parks that want custom products.
Its people are willing to do anything.
\"Because of a propulsion system called a linear induction motor, the prime minister can push the envelope (LIM)
The company is jointly developed with Paramount Park.
LIM is made up of computers-
A controlled magnet powered one by one.
Magnetic pull the metal fins mounted on the car to speed them up.
\"This is the final cleaning technology,\" said Ben Lovelace, the prime minister\'s engineer and project director . \".
\"There are no moving parts except the wheel of the roller coaster.
\"On a traditional roller coaster, the car is dragged to the top of the first hill, and the rest is gravity.
But LIM can deliver energy to the system at any time.
The Revenge of the mummy tour suddenly accelerated a steep ramp, which is impossible under the action of gravity --based coaster.
It will take several years to design and build each vehicle, with costs ranging from $5 million to $20 million --
Like an independent feature film.
In fact, designing a new journey is like writing a movie.
In retaliation for the mummy tour, the world uses a 7-
Including the behavior structure of characters and scene rendering.
The story board once asked the roller coaster to suddenly retreat and rotate 180 degrees.
The prime minister\'s job is to find a way to make it work.
\"They came up with this idea,\" said Seay . \".
\"We came up with the technology to meet our vision.
\"Once the details are finalized, the prime minister will outsource the construction.
One contractor makes a steel runway and the other contractor makes a car.
Designers and engineers only-
House, Premier is able to run lean operations with maximum flexibility.
However, a weak link in the outsourcing chain may cause serious damage.
At 1996, several LIM magnet shells are called Mr At a time.
Freeze Six Flags in Texas.
\"One of our suppliers decided to save some money,\" said Seay . \".
The defect was found during routine maintenance.
So the prime minister\'s four LIM rides had to be closed.
It took 9 months to replace all the faulty parts.
The Prime Minister has not been prosecuted and has not sued its suppliers.
Seay said that these problems are indispensable for an enterprise where almost all products are prototypes.
There are relatively few rides copied.
Although the Sir\'s problem is serious
The Prime Minister said it had the resources and commitment to meet its obligations.
\"It is important to build a journey, but it is also important to stay behind to provide spare parts and follow-up --
Jerry Aldridge, amusement park consultant, said.
\"The Prime Minister has done a good job of getting along with people.
\"Not all Prime Minister clients meet these standards.
In 2007 Prime Minister for the first time in American Myrtle Beach of Hard Rock Park innovation of tourC.
This allows the rider to douse each other with a high-pressure water gun.
But the park struggled with cash flow from the start and applied for Chapter 11 protection five months after opening.
The prime minister has paid enough to recover the cost, but he has not made a profit from the project. Roller-
The history of the roller coaster is full of stories of thriving builders who have gone through a difficult time.
Arrow Dynamics, once one of the prime minister\'s main competitors, filed for bankruptcy in 2001 after it developed a car in Six Flags Magic Mountain, which ultimately cost more than the company\'s fees.
Giovanola, another Swiss rival, was furious.
When it spent too much on a six-flag ride in Texas in 2004.
Seay seems to have learned from the mistakes of its competitors.
\"If a company wants to succeed, it needs to follow financial discipline,\" he said . \"
\"We are proud to have no debt, cash and a lot of credit at hand.
\"The recession is not showing signs of a slowdown in the travel industry, which is very helpful.
\"When you have money, you go abroad for a holiday,\" said Randy Schmidt, chief financial officer . \".
\"When the time is tight, you will go to a place like Busch Garden.
\"It is worth noting that 2009 will be the strongest year in the history of the prime minister.
It has signed the biggest contract ever: it will build a 300-foot-
New York East Rutherford is a high Ferris wheel called the new entertainment center of Taoyuan. J.
The Pepsi Global Watch wheel will become the tallest Ferris wheel in the Americas, and the beverage company will pay $100 million a year to sponsor it for 10 years (

The Prime Minister will also install one of the world\'s biggest signs for Pepsi (
Fortune 500 PEP)
On a huge LCD screen on the side of the wheel.
Seay wouldn\'t specify the budget for the Ferris wheel, just saying it was \"significantly higher than\" his normal cap of $20 million.
Back to the revenge of the Mummy, I climbed up the front seat with project director Lovelace, who managed the construction of the car.
We went through a tunnel full of animated characters and fog.
\"You can get on any journey and everything is fine,\" Lovelace said . \".
\"And then there\'s a \'Oh, s--t!
When you feel like I\'m on the wrong path.
Then you think you will die.
\"A few seconds later, when a character screamed back at us, that moment came --it\'s a trap!
We turned a corner, a towering mummy like a bellows, and we were doomed to fail.
Flames broke out on all sides of the car.
More hair-
Rising from there, in a foreverescalating rat-a-
Visual effects, fire and sudden chaos.
My car slipped to a stop two minutes after it started, and I stood up and trembled.
Lovelace has been smiling since we got on the bus.
I asked him if he was an adrenaline fan like Seay.
\"Most people I know in this industry are like this,\" he said . \".
\"You must find someone who is willing to take risks.
They ski, skydive, or do other crazy things.
Keep you awake? \" I ask.
\"Yes,\" he said with a smile . \"\"Or insane.
