Darien Lake Tantrum Roller Coaster Special Inspections
This project was to construct a new $5 million roller coaster at Darien Lake Theme Park Resort.
Unique Project Features
The coaster takes riders on a 98-foot vertical lift at a 90-degree angle, then into a 97-degree drop and pretzel inversion. The ride reaches speeds of 52 miles per hour. The project required the installation of 68 drilled concrete pier foundations and construction of a new building for loading and unloading riders.
Encorus Group Solution
Encorus Group provided on-site concrete and special inspection services for the ride’s caissons and concrete foundations. The coaster opened on schedule in June 2018.
