About Us

The Themed Entertainment Association at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) is a club for aspiring theme park designers, engineers, and creators. All majors are welcome! Conveniently situated in Southern California, members of this club are based near critically-acclaimed world-class experiences and have a deep understanding of themed entertainment.

TEA at UCSD’s main goal is to further develop its members’ creative and professional skills through educational projects, guided tours, and competitive skill-based competitions. These have included a 6 foot animatronic spider, first place in multiple international competitions, and our largest project, the annual halloween maze!

We hope you’ll look into joining us! We love what we do, and we have tons of fun learning about this amazing industry. Visit our social media pages to see what we’re up to, and join us at our next GBM!
