It's an amazing experience with amazing pay. You'll find yourself meeting so many people with many different backgrounds. The work is always inclusive and the managers are always willing to listen.

Wish I had more time to be apart of a great team..unfortunately I was in a bad incident and lost my job..wish I can return for another great season. It was awesome to see the guests faces upon opening to the park purchasing tickets or passes..

For a summer job it is good money but you will be overworked and exhausted by the first week. You will have to deal with a constant flow of people and there are very little breaks from the Sun so be prepared.

Great Experience, I learned a lot about ride operations, customer service and safety. I lead a team of 30 ride operators to safely and efficiently operate rides.

There's no place else like it! You get to work with and meet so many people from all over the world and right here in the U.S. The hours are flexible and there are many opportunities for advancement! The hardest part are the long hot summer days. The key is to stay hydrated and healthy but after a while, you'll get used to it.
