The story of Ed Morgan and Karl Bacon, ride inventors of the modern amusement parks. Inventors of the tubular steel roller coaster, flume ride, corkscrew roller coaster and many Disneyland and Walt Disney World ride systems.
Starting with a small machine shop in 1946, Ed Morgan and Karl Bacon would become the premier ride designers of the modern age of amusement parks. Having been picked by Walt Disney in 1954 to help construct Disneyland, Ed and Karl maintained a twenty-year working relationship with the Disney organization. Many of the most popular attractions at Disneyland and Walt Disney world contain Ed and Karl’s ride systems.
Ed and Karl are the inventors behind the tubular steel roller coaster, the looping roller coaster and the flume ride; three attractions that have changed the way the world has fun.
This is the story of their journey, in their own words, from a poor machine shop with one burnt-out truck, to a company of over 200 employees building attractions for customers throughout the world.
