From the Niagara Falls Review:
From the cold, steel hands of futuristic cyborgs to alien attacks on the streets of New York, the project manager and technical director for Niagara’s Fury is well versed in the world of special effects.
John Erickson has worked on two of Universal Studios’ main adventure rides at its theme park in Florida – Terminator 2: 3-D, and Men in Black Alien Attack. He was also recruited overseas to lend his expertise on other theme park attractions.
Now, the 47-year-old is on board with the Niagara Parks Commission as one of the lead hands on a creative team building its $7 million, six-minute thrill ride at Table Rock, part of a $38-million expansion of the more than 80-year-old facility.
“I think we’re going to make this a very intense, very realistic ride where people will truly experience moments in time,” said Erickson.
