Theme Park ride design and manufacture

From when we first started Garmendale back in 1980, we had a love for engineering, problem solving and creating beautifully engineered pieces that have been proven to stand the test of time.

 

The business soon grew from it’s base of certified welding and engineering repairs to specialise in the design, manufacture, installation and ongoing aftercare of rides. From simple fabrications to the more complex, demanding projects that required a high level of engineering expertise.

 

We have now taken this focus on quality manufacturing even further with BS EN 1090 certification for all of our manufacturing processes. This is the highest standard available and ensures that what we make is not only made to an agreed standard, but every part we use is fully traceable too.

 

This increasing expertise and business focus saw Garmendale grow to deliver projects for theme parks and attractions around the world. The projects below and the case studies here show the scale and breadth of these and their increasing complexity. One thing that hasn’t changed is our commitment to exceptional engineering allowing operators to deliver profits into the long term.

 

Our most recent extension is into the 3DoF arena with the design and manufacture of the Motion Master range. This is now operational or being installed in four parks around the world and they are running very smoothly and with exceptional reliability.
