Ride Entertainment is celebrating a milestone anniversary, two decades in business, more than 200 thrill rides launched to market, and over half a billion dollars in sales since founding. In their 20th year of setting new records in the industry, Ride Entertainment will put down three new attractions with record-setting attributes for height, length and degree of drop.
The American Dream project, located in East Rutherford, New Jersey, is expected to be the largest indoor theme park in the western hemisphere when complete. For this project, Ride Entertainment conceptualised and sold two record-setting rollercoasters, the Spinning Coaster, the tallest and longest full-circuit, free-spinning coaster in the world, and the Launched Euro-Fighter, which will feature the world’s steepest roller coaster drop, and a ropes course; the world’s tallest, largest and SkyTrail Explorer ropes course. It features a custom experience with two sections geared towards adventurers of all ages and also offers the world’s tallest ropes course QUICKjump.
Founded in 1998 by CEO Ed Hiller, Ride Entertainment has grown from a two-person dream to an international thrill ride company with over 130 employees. With two offices in Maryland and an office in Manhattan, the company has worked on hundreds of family and thrill ride projects across five divisions: sales, parks and attractions, financial partnerships, installations and its proprietary upcharge thrill ride concept, Skycoaster.
