Welcome To MACK Rides

Anyone entering the company building in Waldkirch soon gets a sense of the inventive spirit and real passion for speed and technology ever-present in this bright and modern place. What once began as a small craftsman’s business has evolved into a smart global player of international standing that has nonetheless retained its down-to-earth credentials. The medium-sized company still builds every ride individually here in Waldkirch before shipping them to Asia, Europa, Australia or the USA to thrill amusement park visitors around the world. In doing so, the family-run business knows the best way of combining modernism and tradition to achieve its goals. Supreme craftmanship and the latest technology provide the foundations for the success of MACK Rides.


Our team is led by Chief Excutive Officer Christian von Elverfeldt, Chief Technical Officer, Günter Burger and Chief Officer Sales & Marketing, Thorsten Koebele. All three direct our company and manage our business. Its remit is to act in our company’s best interests while increasing our long-term value.

Today Europa-Park is Germany’s biggest theme park with an attendance of more then five million visitors each year. Over 90% of the rides were created and built by MACK Rides.
