This news could significantly impact Disney’s future.

We all know that Disney’s incredible team of Disney Imagineers is responsible for dreaming up the imaginative and outstanding rides and attractions at the Disney Parks. However, it takes a village to complete such a massive undertaking, and Disney often outsources the manufacturing of their rides to other engineering teams.

These engineering companies are huge assets to theme Parks all over the country. One of the most established companies, Dynamic Attractions, is responsible for some of the most famous and popular attractions at Walt Disney World Resort and Universal Orlando.

Now, it has been announced that Dynamic Attractions has been sold for $2 million to a foreign financial services film.

Dynamic Attractions Sold to the Highest Bidder

Dynamic Attractions is a huge name in the theme Park industry. The company has been around since 1926, but it had its big break in 2005 when it built the track for Disneyland’s roller coaster, Space Mountain. Since then, Disney has maintained a close relationship with the company.

Even if you didn’t recognize the name, there is a good chance you are a fan of Dynamic Attractions. They are responsible for building iconic rides such as Universals Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey ride and the new Mario Kart Koopa’s Challenge ride at Universal Studios Hollywood. At Walt Disney World, Dynamic Attractions contributed wins like Test Track and Soarin’.

This sale is huge news for the theme Park industry as a whole. Dynamic Attractions is not sold to the Hong Kong Finacial Services firm Promising Expert Limited (PCL). This firm also bought Nassal Cos, another theme Park company, earlier this week.

This sale will definitely be a significant change for the theme Park industry, as Disney and Universal both still maintain a close relationship with Dynamic Entertainment. It will be interesting to see how this affects their rides moving forward.
