custom attractions
We create world-first, one-of-a-kind attractions that evoke an emotional and life-changing experience for riders. We have a proven track record of delivering custom rides and innovative Custom Attractions to the top theme parks of the world. We leverage our experience with heavy-duty motion bases, show-action equipment, and custom coasters to immerse riders into the thrill of flight, driving, or experiencing popular attractions with their own senses.
heavy-duty motion base
Our heavy-duty motion base (HDMB) is built to exceed the highest operational up-time. With a class-leading payload allowance, the three degrees of freedom (3-DoF) HDMB is a must-have for modern-day parks. Perfect for a highly themed cabin or a tour bus turned into a motion show on your property, the HDMB is sure to leave both guests and your operations team smiling.
over the top attractions
Over-the-Top racing coasters deliver the rider and market new and exciting features, and an over-the-top experience, unlike anything they have ridden before. Setpoint’s Over-the-Top Dueling Coaster offers a vertical track design that delivers unrivaled family thrills with maneuvers not possible with standard track design. This first-to-market experience and an exciting dueling option provide theme parks and attractions with new marketing opportunities.
show action equipment
Our Show-action Equipment takes lifting, animating, and projecting rides to the next level. Setpoint specializes in working with your ideas and themes to combine show action sets with ride systems. These heavy-duty and highly reliable solutions enhance your creative team’s ability to produce unique shows while keeping the attractions safe and exciting for riders of all ages.
swing thing systems
The award-winning Swing Thing coaster gives riders of all ages an exhilaratingly smooth flying sensation as they pivot front-to-back and side-to-side in a dampened experience that eliminates the jerks and pops of traditional suspended coasters. This unique design allows riders’ feet to dangle freely as they rush over hills, down drops and around turns on an original coaster unlike any other.

ROBOTICS SYSTEMS INTEGRATION

U.S. manufacturers are searching for ways to remain competitive and lower costs in their respective markets. Setpoint offers automated solutions that integrate robots into custom automation equipment. As an authorized FANUC robotics integrator, Setpoint has successfully integrated single and multiple large- and small-scale robots. Due to the diverse nature of robots, integration in a variety of areas is made possible.

LEAN MANUFACTURING AND SYSTEMS

Incorporating lean automation functionality is the standard practice on projects by Setpoint. Our engineers design machines knowing there will be defective parts that need to be rejected prior to the next test, inspection or assembly process. Before parts are ever introduced into the process, they can be checked for the right color, orientation, and size. If they don’t pass, they are not allowed onto the machine. If during the process a part is found to be defective, the work-in-progress software will track the specific part and ensure the bad part is confined to a non-compliant materials box.

AMMUNITION

Setpoint’s unique position in this antiquated industry is developing lean manufacturing practices that facilitate quick changeover between calibers, helping you respond to your customer’s changing requirements. Our machines are the only systems using computer technology and servo actuated presses in this industry.

"The Joes" Legacy
“The Joes,” as they are affectionately known, wanted to build a company that was more than just another engineering house. Based on failures with a previous employer, they were determined to build Setpoint on a strict project management foundation. The Joes wanted their company to maintain a continuous understanding of where it stood in relation to its customers’ budget.
