lotsmoreorcs i worked at Six Flags over Texas sometime around 2009 or so on the security team. There was this truly hellish initiation process where you would have to stand at the line and check peoples bags and tell them they could not bring their own food into the park. Family after family with their carefully thought out foodstuffs forced to just throw it in the garbage over and over and over. Another time I stood by the exit at night and ushered several hundred people through some recently opened excess traffic exits before realizing my dick was hanging out of my pants. IDK if anyone saw but i like to think there as at least one person who will never forget that magical, balmy summer night.
lotsmoreorcs i would not be surprised if this was just MV with different props tho
Monkey Napoleon I worked at a small "theme park" for ~8 years. I'd love to write a book about it, but I doubt anyone would be interested.
The amusement industry is such a weird confluence of customer service, dangerous heavy machinery, and people acting out for basically no reason.
chumbucket I would read that book for sure. I've often wondered about the day to day of theme park labor. I had a friend in college who did summers at one and had the bad luck of working the "Harlem Globetrotters Challenge" hoop game that constantly played an electronic excerpt of "Sweet Georgia Brown" all day long.
Cena_mark I remember these at Six Flags over Georgia. They were a nice distraction from when I needed a break from the rollercoasters.
