Alabama Adventure (Visionland) Themed Amusement Park
122,000 Square Feet
This themed amusement park constructed in the Birmingham area included the design of 49 building structures and 20 ride foundations.
The buildings included retail, food vendors, shelters and entry elements.
The amusement rides were purchased from international vendors requiring the foundation design coordination to accommodate conversions of metric loading and dimensions.
Tucker-Jones also provided the structural engineering and concrete design for the water park and river raft ride flume which contained significant cast-in-place concrete water channels, troughs, surge tanks, holding basins and equipment foundations.
Special design considerations included unbalanced hydraulic loading; mechanical overturning forces and corrosion inhibiting concrete mix designs due to the constant contact with chlorinated water.
