Ride Entertainment shares Skycoaster and park maintenance update
As parks around the world examine ways to safely re-open their properties, Ride Entertainment has announced a number of services to help operators with the process. Two key areas are the Skycoaster and attraction maintenance.
“We know that things will look different as properties start to open,” said Adam Sandy, president of business development. “We want to do our part to help parks as they prepare to welcome guests. This is why we have updated our Skycoaster procedures for parks worldwide and re-tooled our Installation and Maintenance team in a way to assist US-based parks to re-open. There is no one-size-fits-all approach. Parks will open with science and local conditions as their guides and we want to help as best we can.”
Skycoaster worked with its partners to provide cleaning solutions for flight suits as well as updated operational procedures. Lance Beatty, Skycoaster managing director, said, “As our industry faces an unprecedented chain of events, Skycoaster remains open and committed to supporting our customers to navigate these challenging times. We want to especially thank High Energy Sports for their tireless effort to find a solution regarding the sanitization 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.”
Amanda Mercado, projector director for the Installations and Maintenance division, said: “For seasonal parks, without having the months of preparation as normal, opening all of the closed attractions will require an immense amount of work (in a short amount of time) from the maintenance staff. Our installation and maintenance team can help the park maintenance teams across the country. We can supplement your labor and work with your team or project manage and complete projects for you to get all necessary maintenance completed and rides running.”
