What theme park-related careers exist for computer science majors?

July 31, 2017, 6:00 PM

I've always loved Disney and Universal theme parks. I've always wanted to be one of the people who invent or help design the attractions. I'm a computer science major in college. I was wondering if anyone here knew what careers might be of interest to someone of my major in the theme park world. Thanks!

Most modern rides have some sort of degree of computer control - sensing where the vehicles are, engaging start/stop routines as a result, interfacing with trackside animatronic and events... seems like a good way to put robotics skills to use.
