Attention all Ride Ops!

Tuesday, February 25, 2003 10:55 AM
Just figured I'd start a thread dedicated to the greatest job in the world by giving a shout out to all my fellow ride ops out there. I thought it would be cool to get us all together on one thread and we can let everyone know which park & which rides we work at. I work @ SFSL and will be the lead over the Steam Train, Sling Shot, Turbo Bungy, and the Eagle's Bluff rock wall.

Does it count if I'm retired? If I could pay my bills doing it, I'd be doing it right now. I tell ya, when it's time for me to retire, you know how I plan to scratch up bingo and Geritol money. ;)

Last time I checked, those of you who work at a park can't post on sites like this for fear that you let out vital information.

Not all ride ops just run the rides. Some ride ops become supervisors and so on, and they become informed of vital information about the park.

You are allowed to say your a ride op, you just shouldn't open your mouth when you know something. Just saying your a ride op isn't a reason for termination, opening your mouth is.

janfrederick, Haven't started working yet, but I'm sure I'll get used to the rattle of a classic Arrow.

No it won't...the management doesn't tell the ride ops anything they wouldn't want heard anyway. They ain't stupid! They know Ride Ops love to gab.

And yup...cool ride to run...

Really, you shouldn't say you are a ride op. Then your fellow CBers will hound you for any information you may have about the park you work at. Would any of you be able to handle the repeated requests from the masses?

They only thing you might know that they wouldn't want the guests knowing is why the ride you are standing out front of is really broken. You tell them technical difficulties and nothing else. They might not appreciate, "The flim flam maladapter with piston return springs ruptured causing a guest to lose his finger. The ride will be open just as soon as we replace the widgit and clean up the blood."

Transfan,

I think they can handle it okay. Honestly, some "CBers" believe anything they hear. Just like someone else said, the 4-D at SFGAm must still be in the sheds. ;) Some people are just so gullible...anywho, if they can't get it from them, they'll just ask the Dippin' Dots guy.
