Amusement Technical is one of Europe’s leading specialists in the design and manufacture of amusement park ride control systems. Whether an upgrade to an existing plc is required, or the delivery of a complete control for a new ride, we can implement the latest proven hardware, software and safety products to current industry standards. Our cost-effective ride-automation solutions include ride safety systems, ride supervisory systems and sub-system controller interfaces systems for all types and sizes of theme park rides.
As a worldwide leader in amusement park ride control systems' design and manufacture, we are fully conversant with all PLCs (Programmable Logic Controller) and both AC and DC drive systems by all the main manufacturers. These include Schneider Electric, Rockwell Automation (including Allan Bradley), Mitsubishi, Siemens and Pilz.
We are frequently invited worldwide to deal with amusement and theme park ride control system issues both by parks directly and also on behalf of other large ride manufacturers.
Adaptation of rides to accept modern PLCs or drives (retrofit control systems) is a very common scenario for us and this can usually be carried out entirely on site in a short amount of time.

We specialise in writing or modifying PLC software applications for all types of amusement park rides. We design all of the hardware circuits and we write every line of program code, so that we can tightly integrate the control system to your application.
All control system work produced is supplied with supporting documentation in accordance with EN13814.
Whatever your ride, your automation challenges are similar: increase safety, improve reliability, and bolster profitability.

We have designed and implemented amusement ride control systems for a range of rides including:
We don't just work on new attractions. If an existing control system needs replacement, refreshing, or fine-tuning, we can provide a retrofit solution to migrate you to the latest technology and protect your investment long term.
We regularly provide independent assessments of existing ride control systems and, if required, perform upgrades. These enhancements can include replacement of obsolete, unsupported equipment, ensuring rides are up in line with the latest safety standards, or adding more functionality to the ride control system. Also, we offer preventative maintenance services for ride control systems and access to our on-call engineers on a 24/7 basis to minimise ride down-times.
A niche specialist, Amusement Technical has designed and supplied safe ride control systems to the theme park industry for over ten years. We provide control systems to leading parks across the world.
We design our ride control systems to meet customer specifications and applicable sections of international standards such as:
With safety and reliability at the core, we work closely with the Park Safety Inspectors to obtain authorisation and approval at the earliest possible opportunity. We also frequently work with certification bodies such as TÜV SÜD, ADIPS (UK) plus US state inspectorates.
Our bespoke solutions often incorporate one or several of the following:
From system design through to implementation and commissioning, we provide the skills and experience for your project requirements. Our services include:
Safety is our chief priority. Our systems are designed to comply with the latest safety standards.
We design, configure and build our control panels with a focus on ease of installation and commissioning. We thoroughly test all factory wiring and devices before shipping your system.
The on-site setup of your control system includes thorough testing of devices, PLC programming, and training for park personnel.
Our programming expertise spans from first-generation PLCs to the latest Allen Bradley Studio 5000 and Siemens TIA Portal and Mitsubishi FX software.
We support all our ride control solutions. As a matter of course, all our systems are monitored to ensure remote diagnostics, minimal downtime, and swift resolution.
We produce a comprehensive operator's manual, as well as complete sets of electrical layout and schematics for all our control systems.
We frequently train maintenance staff and ride operatives to ensure they have the necessary knowledge and skills to manage the ride control systems and deal promptly with any system issues.
We offer machining production and supply of replacement parts. Also, we have a team of engineers, on hand, to install replacement parts and component assemblies.
Whether you want to commission a new ride, refurbish an existing one, buy a stock item
or simply source some spare parts then we can help.
