What is the Ride Engineering Competition?
The Ride Engineering Competition offers University students a chance to demonstrate real-world engineering practices within the industry focus of ride engineering and design. Student teams will design, plan, and manufacture an attraction for small riders based on a prompt that includes a plot of land and desired rider experience.
The Ride Engineering Competition is run as a Non-profit organization by a team of volunteer students and Young Professionals.
The only Hands-on Engineering competition in the attractions industry
Competitors in the Ride Engineering Competition engage in real engineering practices from the Amusement Industry including:
ASTM F24 Safety Standard Compliance
Prototyping and Manufacturing
Highlights of this year's Challenge
The Ride Engineering Competition is a non-profit! We are run by a team of volunteer students and young professionals with a goal to bring stability to the competition and ensure its success for many years to come!
