The National Roller Coaster Museum (NRCMA) is expanding its Texas-based archive to include a nearly 10,000sqft exhibition space to be named after founding board member and Uremet Corporation founder Mark Moore.
The Mark Moore Wing will display a portion of the Museum’s collection of artefacts, designs, photographs and ride vehicles for public viewing and research purposes. Its nearly three-story vaulted ceiling will allow the largest of the equipment and signage to be displayed, as well as providing a second floor mezzanine for additional exhibits. The new building will be attached to the existing 10,000-square-foot archive space with a new entrance building featuring a 1930s Eyerly Octopus ticket booth, pre-experience theatre, and a multi-purpose carousel-themed meeting room.
Building construction is due to be completed in summer 2021.
A 1:48 scale model of the entire museum building complex, including the donated artefacts, will be on display during the 2018 IAAPA Attractions Expo at the NRCMA booth #4314, November 12 – 16.
