BALTIMORE (WJZ) — It's one of the leaders in the thrill ride and amusement park business, and it's located on Maryland's Eastern Shore.
Ride Entertainment draws up plans for roller coasters and parks in the United States and around the world.
"We've done projects pretty much everywhere. We have some ongoing projects in China, we've done work in Japan, we have a 240-foot tower ride there," said Adam Sandy, chief development officer for Ride Entertainment. "Attractions in South Korea, a lot of work going on in Dubai right now. Pretty much anywhere you can think of outside of Antarctica, we've kind of planted our flag with one of our attractions."
The Stevensville based company is celebrating its 20th year in business, with more than 200 thrill rides launched to market and over a $500,000 in sales sine it was founded in 1998.
"We've got about 15 full-time people and about 140 part-time people. All the part-time people are in our operations group in New York because we operate seven attractions there," Sandy added.
Ride Entertainment is currently working on the American Dream project in the Meadowlands, New Jersey. The location is just four-and-a-half miles from the Lincoln Tunnel and includes two roller coasters.
"That project is real exciting and will open next year. It will be the largest entertainment construction project in the world. Our two coasters are the anchor of this attraction," Sandy said. "One coaster is the spinning coaster which spins four people around the track. The bigger ride is the Launch Euro-Fighter. It will be the king of roller coasters in the New York area."
Ride Entertainment was founded in 1998 by CEO Ed Hiller. The company has worked on hundreds of family and thrill ride projects.

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

My uncle lived with us back in    Ohio then and he played the drums. I grew up with a Rock band practicing in my basement.    I did not know it at the time but this little town I lived in knew how to rock. When did music become your main interest and what lead you to take music so seriously?   When I was 13 I saw my first rock concert. It was The kinks (one for the road tour.)    It changed me instantly. Suddenly that was the only thing I wanted to do.    To this day I'm still doing it. My guitar obsession had just started and    I did take some music theory lessons as well. I began learning how to create music or write a song.    I recently worked with two clasical Violinist. A Saxsaphone player and a Pianist. The Music theory lessons did pay off as I was able to talk to them in a launguage they understood.  Being a Singer
