PKI Season Passes

Tuesday, February 11, 2003 2:33 PM
Where do you go to get your Paramount's Kings Island season pass processed? I heard that last year, the processing was done in Paramount Theater, but I don't understand how season pass holders could get into the park without their passes.

They will give you a voucher so you may enter the park then get your pass processed sometime in the day.

That is only done during the pre and post season while there are not shows going on. During the full season or before the park opens they will process your season pass in the building actually designated for that. This is at the far left end of the group sales ticket building, to the left of the entrance, almost under Face/Off.

The voucher is given to you at any park when you buy a Season Pass, whether you buy it at the park, from a grociery store (eg, Meijers) or online. That tells them you bought one and that you can get in so you can process it.

Processing was open 2 weeks before the park opened last year and I'm sure it will be the same this year. Just go through the parking lot (they won't charge you) and than go get it processed it's pretty easy.

I've got the voucher, but since I'll be able to use the building designated for season pass processing, I won't need to use it to get into the park.

By the way BeastFreak, I went in for an interview on the Special Interveiw Day, and I wasn't able to work in rides like I had wanted to, but I was offered a job in food service. However, my parents decided that since I can serve food anywhere I want in the town I live in, there's no point in working at PKI. ( I understand their logic, but its extremely stupid in my opinion ) In other words, I won't be working down their for the 2003 season. Thanks again for your help.

Seriously? I'm not offended or anything, but I know that some people on these boards ( Possibly you, Shaggy ) are parents, so they would understand where my parents are coming from.

The thing is, they were going to let me work down at PKI if I was hired in rides, but they didn't let me since I could have been hired in food service.

I am not a parent, but after being an seasonal rides employee at PKI I think what they decided was wise.

If you are anxious to hold a job for the money you'll earn, then it makes more sense to do so at a local eating establishment than perhaps to travel a distance to work. The gas and wear and tear eat away at your earnings.

However, I understand your interest in working at PKI. PKI is a great place to work. However if you were not hired to work in rides as you had wanted, then you probably would have become disenchanted with working food service. Plus it is a seasonal job, and within 5 months you would not have a job.

I do not begrudge anyone a job in food service at a park. However if it means that you must travel a ways to do so, then it may make more sense to take a job closer to home rather than cut into your profits.

If you were able to work rides, that would make travel to work worthwhile because that is a position you cannot find around every corner.

But here's the big question... have you checked into who pays a higher wage? Would your local resteraunt(s) or place of business pay more than PKI does their food service workers? Or vise-versa? If PKI pays more, than that may be fodder for your conversation with your folks.

But remember that they call the shots. Don't challenge them too much, because often they know best and have your better interests in mind.

Working food service at PKI, let alone any park, is HARD work. My hat is off to those that have done that or are doing so.
