Ramblin' River Run is a unique water ride experience that takes guests through the history of Georgia Tech and the life of the famous student George P. Burdell. Designed and created for the national Iowa State Ride Engineering Competition, this experience allows guests to experience a hybrid flume and bobsled track that runs throughout the experience while also discovering the famous stories at Georgia Tech.
Matthew is responsible for the overall creative development, concept art, the ride's story, graphics of control systems and security layout, modeling and 3-D printing, prototyping of track and rides vehicles, material expiration, and testing of model pieces.
Ramblin' River Run is developed to follow ASTM F2291 and ASTM F24.70 safety standards with a team of engineers and business majors. Matthew also helped create a project charter, theory of operations, and risk assessment for the experience. This experience is still in development and planned to be designed and constructed in virtual reality.
