Disneyland Park, Anaheim, California
A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, Portland Bolt was called upon by The Resistance for a secret mission on the planet Batuu. The mission was to help create a new addition at the happiest place on earth. Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is set to open at Disneyland Park on June 24, 2019.
Portland Bolt has manufactured anchor bolts and construction fasteners for Disney projects in the past, including Grizzly River Run in Disney’s California Adventure. However, Galaxy’s Edge is the most extensive and challenging amusement park projects we have worked on.
The project required 37 separate releases with exact on-time delivery dates that were critical for the construction schedule. Because the site at Disneyland was top secret, Portland Bolt was required to contract with special freight carriers to ensure clearance for delivery at the job site.

In addition to the Galaxy’s Edge project that we featured in this newsletter, we have provided bolts for many other rides and roller coasters at theme parks throughout the world.
One recent project involved the manufacture of anchor bolts for the Supergirl Sky Flyer at Six Flags Theme Park in St. Louis, Missouri.
Another 2019 theme park project required the manufacture of A325 Type 3 structural bolts made from weathering steel. These bolts were shipped to the Universal Beijing Resort.
