What parks offer housing for employees (dorms, apartments, etc.)? I know that Cedar Point and Valleyfair! both offer this, but what other parks do?
Six Flags housed the international employees at SFNE and AFAW as I recall. I remember hearing about this at an AIMS conference about four or five years ago. Don't know if they're still doing that.
After hearing all the horror stories at our beloved Cedar Fair corporation's Cedars at Cedar Point I can only imagine what Six Flags housing must be like...

i think disney world offers housing.
WDW only offers housing to College Program students. Everyone else is on their own. They do have folks that help you find an apartment, though.
Old carpet covering the halls, and the wood floors in the dorm rooms are in need of painting or staining. Laundry facilities contain only a few washers and driers; not nearly enough to support the needs of the many occupants.
I have heard that the phone line problems have been fixed, but when I was there it was difficult to get a outbound line due to them being tied up by personal computers.
...And the parking, UUGGHH, THE PARKING. I was permitted to park in Space Spiral lot, which is near DT. I had to walk from there to Cedars, which is across the street from Wildcat.
But what would you expect for $12 a week?
I am not complaining. I have some very, VERY good memories from that place. One of the best, and worst times of my life were in that building.
Cedar Point offers a few alternatives to Cedars. Commons and Bayside are off point (beside Breakers Express hotel) and charge higher rent, but offer transportation to the park, semi-private showers, heat, a/c, more space, a rec center, large laundry facility, cable TV, Kitchens, and a few basketball courts.
I've lived in both Cedars and Commons, and they each have pro's and cons.
Dorney will refer you to some very inexpensive housing that cater to seasonal park employees. I checked into it once a few years ago.
Okay, I done. Thanks for reading. I'm usuially on topic, but never answer the first post.
Edit- added a second parenthesis. *** Edited 4/18/2005 2:14:07 AM UTC by dexter***
