NEW rollercoaster to be featured at Hersheypark
SUN VALLEY, CA., May 26, 2015 — LA ProPoint, a leader in the design, engineering, fabrication, and installation of stage and show systems, has designed and installed special scenic elements for Laff Trakk, the first indoor, spinning, glow-coaster in the United States at Hersheypark in Hershey, PA.
LA ProPoint fabricated, and installed the rollercoaster’s painted scenic backdrops and steel-framed pass-through elements, which were skinned in painted fabric or painted wood facings. LA ProPoint worked closely with Hersheypark and Raven Sun Creative on the design, taking their concept work and turning them into shop drawings, engineered for the facility and coaster layout. The effort required 35 days and two installation phases.
The company also created funhouse mirrors, a fortuneteller’s table with crystal ball effects and floating paraphernalia, a palace tunnel, over-sized pass-through picture frames, fire rings, and giant playing cards.
Additionally, all elements in the ride area were UV painted for a black light effect, while queue areas were painted for white light. All black light elements were installed above, around, and through the ride track and ride structure by LA ProPoint riggers.
“We are honored to be a critical part of Laff Trakk, Hersheypark’s 13th rollercoaster, which takes riders on an unforgettable journey through a 21st century fun house,” notes Mark Riddlesperger, founder and president of LA ProPoint. “With the indoor glow lights and installation of iconic fun house items, our contributions will ensure that riders enjoy the rollercoaster experience of a lifetime.”
