Years ago I heard about the lack of engineering qualifications from a frequent patron of the park. He got to know some of the staff pretty good. I asked him about the designs of the rides and who did them (I'm an engineer so it is in my nature to be curious about this stuff). He said that they do it all on their own because there's nobody else that would design stuff like that. Didn't sit right with me. My kids have only been to the park a couple of times, and they had no interest on riding the Verrückt, but after my conversation I told them to not get on it under any circumstances. In hindsight, would have been nice if that was public knowledge.
