Athens, TX (October, 2019) – Extreme Engineering has so much to show and tell at this year’s IAAPA.  The award winning family coaster, the Cloud Coaster, has three major projects opening in first quarter of 2020.  These three projects are across the globe from Asia, to the Middle East and Canada.  Other exciting developments have emerged on the Cloud Coaster as well.  Extreme Engineering has teamed up with The Producers Group, the industry experts in theme park production, on a new dark ride attraction called “The Dark Rider.”  The Producers Group collaborated with Extreme Engineering, making the Cloud Coaster the official ride vehicle, while their team provides the show production elements, including A/V, theming and special effects.

“2019 has been an incredible year for Extreme Engineering. We are currently installing our Cloud Coaster at some leading, iconic theme park destinations, are providing ride vehicles for dark ride attractions, have developed over 12 new adventure rides, installed over 3 major adventure parks and doubled our business in engineering and fabrication to other ride suppliers,” states Phil Wilson, EVP of Extreme Engineering.

The three Cloud Coasters, to open in 2020, will be the very first on many design elements for each park.  Each project will have breakthrough features, new track design layouts, including one of the largest track lengths to date.  “Our project In Asia will be the very first coaster located outdoors, soaring guests above some iconic landmarks located in the park. The project in the Middle East will have the longest running coaster track to date, using some exciting IP in the theming that we can’t yet fully disclose,” says Wilson.

Outside of Extreme Engineering’s family coaster projects, they were very busy on the engineering design and fabrication part of their business.  In 2019 they fabricated, engineered and stamped the Dollywood tree structure for Lifeformations and Wildwood Grove.  “The tree was massive.  Over 50 feet tall and 50 feet wide with hundreds of custom design branches.  Each branch had to be clocked and bolted to the base where over 650 lighted butterflies would mount, including over 9,000 leaves,” says Jeff Wilson, CEO of Extreme Engineering.  Some of the other projects included roller coaster anchors used at Universal parks, façade structures for themed elements in dark rides, a custom mine cart attraction for a stunt show, to massive steel supports for amusement rides.

Extreme Engineering will also be celebrating the debut of The Producers Group new dark ride attraction, The Dark Rider, in which Extreme Engineering is ride vehicle and track supplier.  The Producers Group’s, booth 872, will have Extreme Engineering’s clown theme Cloud Coaster ride vehicle on display, including the column and track integration.  Their press announcement will be held on Wednesday, November 20th, to discuss the latest attraction.
