First year doing Ride ops!


Trained for the whole 240 Boardwak Area


-Green Lantern

-SUF-evacs are going to be a pain lol

-The Twister

- Parachuter's Perch



Congratulations fellow Parachutist!


I loved working that ride in the mid-80s. Operating two chutes at once made the time fly by. The only drawback was that it got extremely hot on that concrete pad all day broiling in the sun, but you do get one hell of a tan! :Heatmizer:

Thanks Mike! Lol farmer's tan! I'm Asian so I have that tan built into me. We'll see about the tan.

As for the stressfulness I know how hard it is. I was in foods last year and the long lines were just unbareable. I figure its more stressful operating rides than a cash register! ;)

The enjoyment of afternoon swims? :)



Hahaha i never swam! We had hoses though that we often soaked ourselves with and guests glared in jealousy. It was just a chance and no hours vs the security of more hours type of thing. Plus i miss the sea lions.
