History

S&S was established in 1994 by Stan Checketts[2] and they originally made zip line gear but the company later released their first theme park ride the Space Shot, a new type of drop tower that uses compressed air to power it unlike the Intamin version which uses a cable to lift the drop tower to the top.[3]

Following the closure of Custom Coasters International, Inc. in July 2001, owner Denise Dinn was hired by S&S to start a new wooden roller coaster division.[4] The company went on to build four wooden roller coasters.

In 2002, S&S Power purchased the bankrupt Arrow Dynamics, renaming it S&S Arrow.

Founder Stan Checketts left the company in 2008.[2]

In November 2012 S&S became a subsidiary of Sansei Yusoki Co. Ltd., who purchased 77.3% of the company.[5][6] The company was renamed S&S-Sansei Technologies.
