Sea World Parks Group use them quite a bit at their coasters.

Thank you! My friend was at Sea World San Diego yesterday describing it to me, and I was like, I'm so familiar with those I just don't know what they're called. Much appreciated!

Lareson wrote:Think my least favorite are the Custom Coaster control panels. Not exactly sure why they did that, but they put the E-stop at the bottom of the control panel, meaning you have to reach over it to use the rest of the controls. I've seen it on a couple of their coasters, including Twisted Twins, Shivering Timbers, and Rampage.


According to some friends who work at the park, timbers is getting a new control panel next season because the current one is old and having problems.

The main Dispatch panel at the Monsters Inc ride at Disney California Adventure. There are two panels, one at the loading station and a smaller one at the unloading station.

Does anyone know any good software to design control panels?

I mainly just want the front end of the panel designed (Where buttons, Pilot lights, etc go) that is ideally free but paid will do.

I need it to design a panel I'm building for NL2 of a decent size, and therefor I want it to be planned well.
