Theme Park Design Series: Electrical Engineering

The fourth installment of this series about theme park design will focus on Electrical Engineering. As the most broad discipline, electrical engineering involves nearly 100 different systems. It can be considered the system integrator, or the “accountant”, of the design team.

The most involved of the facility engineers, the Electrical Engineer is the one whose systems literally power almost all the other ones. Two of the best in the business, Kristen Williams and Matt Schoenherr from EXP, have been critical in creating immersive environments for themed attractions for decades. Since electrical engineering is the life blood of every new building design and construction, we will discuss what makes this discipline especially exciting and challenging in the themed entertainment industry.
