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 EXECUTIVE BOARD

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.

Mack Rides Stakeholders

Mack Rides is owned by Dr. Roland Mack, Jürgen Mack and Michael Mack. All three share the passion of creating outstanding attractions. With their experience and the daringness to break new ground the company develops each and every day to build the best rides in the industry. And with our own showcase at Europa-Park, we can learn from the daily operation and maintenance. This expertise is unique in our industry.

THE MACK FAMILY

For eight generations the Mack family combines daringness, experience and tradition in the amusement industry. What started as a small carriage workshop has grown into a modern, family-owned ride production.

 

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. See our Inverted Powered Coaster with the Arthur theme or our Islandic launch coaster bluefire and watch the reaction of our visitors.

OUR PASSION

It’s the rush of adrenaline, the laughter of our visitors and the cheers during the rides.

We love to make people smile with our rides every single day.

OUR UNIQUE PROCESS

MACK Rides is proud to create all core-components in-house here in Waldkirch: outstanding design, modern track manufacturing, handcrafted fibre-glass plastics and vehicle assembly.

Planung

ENGINEERING

The first development phase involves intensive dialog with the customer, because their wishes, aims, and requirements must be precisely established so that such considerations can be incorporated in the track layout later on.

Biegemaschine

TRACK MANUFACTURING

State-of-the-art, specially developed production processes guarantee both high-quality fabrication of the track layout with unbeatable precision as well as production times that are faster than average for the industry.

Bügel

TRAIN MANUFACTURING

Whether seat framework, restraint piping, vehicle frame, or wheel casing, all vehicle parts are manufactured by MACK Rides in Waldkirch.

GFK

DEVELOPING THE VEHICLE DESIGN

The design of the vehicle is developed in close consultation with the customer. Our highly skilled craftsmen produce any initial prototype based on
the final drawings.

Sitze

FINAL ASSEMBLY

Once all the individual parts have been produced, the final assembly stage can get under way – also in Waldkirch. All the parts are assembled and the electronic components are installed.

Schienenschluss

COMMISSIONING

An experienced team of supervisors from MACK Rides travels from Waldkirch to the roller coaster’s new home and oversees the construction of the supporting elements, tracks, and all other stages until the ride enters service.

OUR COMMITMENT

We are committed to upholding our most cherished values in every project and task we take on.

Over 235 and eight generations of passion and entrepreneurship made MACK Rides one of the most successful companies in the amusement industry. From a wagon builder to an international operating attractions designer the company always grew sustainable. As an operator and a manufacturer, the Mack family is bringing this expertise back into our new products and developments.
