Structural Design and Geotechnical Study for the Enchanted Kingdom Spinning Coaster
Sta. Rosa, Laguna
Enchanted Kingdom (EK) is the first and only theme park in the Philippines. It is located in Sta. Rosa, Laguna and opened to the public on October 1995. The world-class attraction is currently undergoing an expansion over the next decade, in the process growing the area from 10 hectares to 40 hectares. Part of the expansion is to provide various attractions, unique rides, and new facilities.
EK engaged AMH Philippines, Inc. (AMH) to carry out foundation design of their new ride, the Spinning Coaster created by Mack Rides from Germany. The scope of work of AMH includes geotechnical investigation and evaluation and structural design of shallow foundations. The final output of AMH is detailed foundation drawings for 172 pedestals.
