I'm new to the forum. I'm a high school junior:rolleyes , and i want to get into ride designing. I'm thinking about getting a degree in mechanical engineering from virginia tech. Would that be the best way? Thanks!:lol

*Yells over the forum space*:
"Hey, No Limits Thriller!... We have a customer in line 2!"

I'm one of the "artsy people"... but we have a few engineering specialists who can probably give you a good answer to this question. Above all, make sure that you love the field that you are aiming for (not just aiming for it because it might get you into the industry). If you don't love your field, even being in the industry will probably not make you happy...

New Post Re: Hi! So what about all those artsy people - where do they fit in? I have seen Alcorn-McBride's Theme Park Engineering course, how about something a little more geared towards design?

New Post Ride Design LOL @ Holly.

As far as ride design is concerned, there are a lot of disciplines involved just like with theater design. Mechanical engineering is what I do, and because (thrill) rides are mostly steel constructions, iut is a fairly obvious choice. But things like electrical engineering, software programming, civil engineering etc also play a part Smile

New Post Re: Ride Design Thanks. I can come up with themes, designs, general ideas, etc. but I can't draw Surprised ! I'm good at math, and I like the technicalities, so I thought engineering would be the way to go.
