To-date, we have supported the addition of the 4.9-acre Aeronautica Landing theme area, a 3.2-acre picnic pavilion, and rides such as SlingShot, Copperhead Strike, and the award-winning Fury 325, world’s tallest and fastest giga coaster.

Also, as part of a $50M expansion, ESP provided services for major renovations to various park areas, including the main park entrance, Camp Snoopy children’s area, and 27-acre Carolina Harbor water park.
