Theme park supplier stories

Theme park suppliers

Ensuring the successful operation of amusement and theme parks are a wide range of theme park suppliers and third parties.

No park is complete without a core selection of rides and attractions, supplied by theme park suppliers around the world. Common ride types include roller coasters, dark rides, flat and thrill rides, water rides and transport modes.

Other customer-facing theme park supplier services include:

Food and beverage: from quick service and snacks to gourmet and fine dining

Entertainment: including mascots, live performances and seasonal events such as Christmas and Halloween.

Retail: featuring merchandise and custom products

Other services may assist in a behind-the-scenes capacity, such as consultancy, financial, recruitment and marketing services.

Theme parks and amusement parks may also rely on external companies to assist with long-term investments. This includes the design, installation and master planning of rides, attractions, structures and other elements.

Some parks use internal departments for a lot of projects, such as the Walt Disney Company which has an in-house team known as Walt Disney Imagineering, a long-standing organisation that specialises in immersive storytelling.

Technical services are a growing area of demand, with the advancement of expectations requiring different and enhanced solutions. Theme parks have as a result invested in new products including Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR), and Mixed Reality, some of which are standalone additions or existing rides that have been adapted to enhance the guest experience.

Attractions featuring performance or visual elements can also utilise the services of theme park suppliers who are specialists in AV and videography.

A comprehensive range of theme park suppliers is found in the blooloop directory.
