  • Final plan – this is the last step of amusement rides drawing.

It contains all the details info of the amusement park rides.

You could have a complete amusement rides design through this stage.

Step #3:Under Production

There are 3 main operations you need to consider at this stage.

These include:

Fiberglass Manufacturing, Steel structure Manufacturing and Assembling

Fiberglass Manufacturing

As you begin the amusement rides manufacturing process, you have to shape Fiberglass.

This may involve:

  • Cutting fiberglass into various sizes based on the design requirements.
  • fiberglass polishing 
  • fiberglass painting

NOTE: Take accurate measurements at every step.

This is to avoid unnecessary wastage of fiberglass.

Steel Structure Manufacturing

Steel structure Manufacturing involves a series of processes.

Depending of your amusement park rides, you may consider the following:

  • Cutting
  • Welding
  • CNC machining
  • Debarring
  • Bending

In each of these processes, be sure to get the right tool and equipment for each task.
