Ride Entertainment (Stevensville, MD) provides Thrill Rides for Galveston Island Pleasure Pier

History-making Galveston Island Pleasure Pier to feature two major Ride attractions

The recent unveiling of plans for Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier, Texas, culminates several months of major theme park announcements in the United States and abroad that prominently feature Stevensville’s Ride Entertainment Group attractions.

            Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier is one of the largest new amusement park projects to open in the United States in decades, and will be anchored by two attractions that will come from Ride Entertainment Group: a Gerstlauer Euro-Fighter roller coaster and the Funtime StarFlyer. These two attractions will be the tallest ones for the new pier, which is scheduled to open this summer:

            The Euro-Fighter roller coaster will stand 100 feet tall, and feature four inversions, and the well-known vertical lift and beyond vertical drop. The Funtime StarFlyer will stand 200 feet tall and will swing guests nearly 230 feet above the saltwater below. 

            “This project has been a great one for our team,” said Adam Sandy, Director of Sales, Ride Entertainment Group. “The fact that they purchased two of our most popular attractions says a lot for what we can offer the serious-minded entrepreneur who has a vision for something truly special,” he adds.

Local Woman starts “Collections for a Cause” to Benefit Haiti ’s Children

It’s been three months since a cataclysmic 7.0 earthquake leveled the island of Haiti but for one Stevensville woman and her daughter, the Haiti crisis remains urgent. Their continuing passion seeks to support the quakes most helpless victims, children.

While Roxie Marx and her 17-year-old daughter, Jordan, have participated in various drives, volunteered at a food pantry, delivered holiday gifts to children who have an incarcerated parent and served dinners for altruistic causes, the mother-daughter duo decided to take a leap of faith by initiating the “Haiti’s Children” campaign. By collecting stuffed animals, pacifiers and teething rings, their goal is to offer a small token of comfort for a multitude of Haiti ’s orphaned, injured and displaced children.

While news cameras repeatedly panned a solemn landscape of rubble and death, Roxie and Jordan were inspired by how the survivor’s human spirit refused to crumble. “It was the haunting images of child survivors, hundreds of thousands left all alone, that moved us to start this drive,” says Roxie. “I was already aware that a stuffed animal can be a surrogate for security, and couldn’t help but think of a particular stuffed, pink elephant that never left my daughter’s side when she was younger.”
