Cincinnati, OH -- Four former engineers of Custom Coasters International announced the formation of The Gravity Group, LLC, a new firm specializing in development and design of wooden rides. The Gravity Group is a new source for those in the amusement industry looking for roller coaster design and engineering services.

The Gravity Group team includes Lawrence Bill, Michael Graham, Korey Kiepert and Chad Miller, all former engineers at Custom Coasters International. This team is well known in the industry for their engineering work on more than 40 wooden roller coasters.

Members of this group were responsible for the design of several wooden roller coasters that are considered "Top Ten" rides, including Shivering Timbers at Michigan's Adventure, Raven and The Legend at Holiday World & Splashin' Safari and CornBall Express at Indiana Beach. This teams diverse experience has also allowed them to build roller coasters in several non-traditional locations including swamps, mountainsides and even over the top of existing attractions.

The Gravity Group has a strong background in civil, structural and mechanical engineering, allowing them to handle foundation, structural and dynamic design for a wide variety of roller coaster projects. The group looks forward to bringing many more of its creative, crowd-pleasing designs to an amusement park near you.
