Premier Rides to service Ocean Park attractions

Premier Rides to service Ocean Park attractions
March 25, 2013

US-based rides specialist Premier Rides' aftermarket ride support division, Premier Service, has been selected by Ocean Park Hong Kong to provide technical services and support for multiple rides over an extended period of time.

The contact marks one of Premier's largest service related contracts to date and will see Premier Service and Ocean Park work together to incorporate the latest in new ride technology into existing legacy rides, which are still extremely popular with the millions of guests that visit Ocean Park each year.

The upgrades will include the incorporation of state-of-the-art controls and braking technologies as well as other innovative features, ensuring that the rides can operate reliably and efficiently for many years to come.

Explaining that Premier and Ocean Park's technical staff will work closely together to complete these upgrades, Premier Rides President Jim Seay comments "we have done technical projects before with Ocean Park; they have a very talented maintenance team with excellent skill sets and are passionate about keeping their equipment operating at the highest level. Ocean Park has a reputation for setting the bar high for the quality of the guest experience and the quality of their equipment."

Premier Service has seen a significant increase in its business due to the tremendous global growth of the amusement industry. It has established a Premier Rapid Response Team, which has already been dispatched to multiple parks to augment existing staff for parkwide rehab efforts or to address specific technical projects.

Premier's technical staff has already been onsite and will continue their presence for an extended period.

As Seay adds "we are honored by the trust placed in us by Ocean Park's management and look forward to a long-term cooperative effort."
