I just wanted to know how many of us are aspiring to be the next Anton Schwarzkopf. Though I did want to design thrill rides, I think it would be much more fun to be involved in the everyday operation of a theme park, and have thus changed my life plans accordingly. :)

Anton Schwarzkopf?--pffff--I plan on being the next Werner Stengal! Seriously though, I hope to become a coaster designer.

I wouldn't mind working for Dana Morgan...but an engineering degree might be nice. I wonder if he needs any geo-engineers??

I WILL be one. I am determined to become a structural engineer and then go to work for Arrow. I would like to revive the mega looper consept, however I would of course make sure the roughness problem was not a problem any longer.

Thas crazy, Arrow was my goal too! But I just have one question, is structural engineering a branch from civil or is it seperate?

You can aspire to be the next Anton Schwarzkopf, but make sure you design the coaster well enough so it doesn't kill people like the coaster he designed in Alberta Canada at the big mall.

I thought it was arnold not anton, but please feel free to correct me if i am wrong and i just might be. I might become a designer of thrill rides and rollercoasters especially, But the career I have in intrest will possibly , if i use money wisely and invest smart, to own my own themepark. But this would be a long ways off because I will start highschool next year.

I would personally like to be part of Universal Creative because I just love theme parks and the way they pay attention to every detail.

So far, I believe that the only school in the country that offers structural engineering as a major in itself is University of California, San Diego. Technically thats my major here, but I'm not currnetly taking classes for it. It concentrates on the concepts behind basic structural systems, ie bridges and expands to all sorts of areas: Off shore, aeronautical, automotive, and astronautics etc.

I WILL be the next Schwarzkopf/John Miller/John Allen!! As you can see, I will be designing both wooden and steel coasters. I know it's a lot of hard work, but I'm willing to work hard!! :)

It wasn't Schwarzkopf's fault people died, the people who own the coaster didn't maintain it correctly, causing the train to break apart.

That would be the best job, but personally I would rather be a CEO of a park and make decisions what rides I want to build and how much cash I will spend to pack the park with new rides!!

I'm already in the field. Got any twisted ideas, like this....

400' coaster, 100 of the drop vertical to 80 degree slope. 180' loop. 105 MPH

Class of 1993 here! Texas Tech has a Masters Program in Civil with a Structural Focus.

The car frame came off the wheel base and the people were flung into the supports. The problem was fixed, so it won't happen again.
