Cedar Point Ride Ops...

Are the best! They are so "into" their job. I love it how Raptor and Mantis tear each other down all day long. It really adds fun to the experience. I am sure that the General Public have hardly a clue as to what many of the ride ops are talking about, but we enthusiasts sure do!

The best? Maybe, but my vote goes to the dancing ride ops at Holiday World! :)

The ones on Raptor are the best! On Saturday, I told one of the female ride ops it was my birthday, and then everybody on the train sang Happy Birthday to me. I had even more respect for CP employees after that.

I haven't been to HW yet but for now I agree. CP has the best employees. That's probably what makes it one of the best amusement parks. The other parks (especially SF) need to learn off of CP.

Other than HW and KG, (both visited during events), CP's ops get people in, on, and out faster than any other park.

If only the ops from MiA and KBF could go and learn a little something, maybe the lines for Ghostrider/ST wouldn't move quite so ssslllooowww-lllyyyyyyy.......

Yeah, Holiday World ride ops are way better then CP's... I may have went on an "off-day", but CP's ride ops never really looked like they were having that much fun. But as Brentwood said... Raptors were pretty cool.

I was once a CP ride opp at Camp Snoopy. It was sooooo much fun. They encouraged you to goof around with the kids a little bit. We knew when to act crazy and when to be allert. It was the perfect balance.

I would always turn little kids hats around, dance, and make faces at them, but when the time came, I would seriously measure them and check restraints and such.

Working at CP is a BLAST. It made me feel very importiant and at the same time like a kid again:)
