That time Dick Kinzel lost a lot of money on a low FUN price

OK, well, I was probably wrong. I was just trying to come up with a way that saying "corporate doesn't tell me anything" in regards to Mean Streak could be a half truth instead of a lie. Not that I think its wrong for him to deny knowledge or anything.


I was way off in my previous statement. Somehow Rob Decker's entire department managed to escape my mind.

Would this be a definition of a disgruntled employee? Lol

That was the past, but it's funny the general manager of Cedar Point was asked what's going on with Mean Streak at an employee meeting recently... His response was "I don't know what you're talking about, corporate doesn't tell me anything"

So you don't get the joke....

They are but they continue to treat there staff like dirt and give the season staff no incentive to stay at the end of the season.

And that is based on personal, current experience?

You know when I worked at Geauga Lake, they had a bonus system for seasonals.....

Oh, it's based on a decade old grudge instead.

It's funny how us lower management were handed a piece of paper w all of our staff showing us there accumulated points and TOLD to write up our staff for tardiness or call offs with the goal to eliminate at least 1/3 of our seasonals so Cedar Fair didn't have to pay that bonus put. Wow talk about lack of core values. I was not amused, considering the rest of the season it was the opposite.... Work em hard!

So you weren't writing up employees for being tardy or calling off excessively? To the extent senior management had to do part of the job for you and your fellow members of "lower management" by putting together lists?

And honestly the Mean Streak thing is not a joke. I don't take such a answer from the GM, the leader by the way which lied to his staff before the season even began. There is public relations I get that, but all he had to do to avoid the lie was simply state the obvious nothing more. It's just another consistent example of why I don't even want to do business with Cedar Fair Parks let alone ever work for them again.

Really dude, you don't get that this was tongue in cheek humor on the part of the GM? You're the only one who is bothered by nothing.

I'd rather be in my boat with a drink on the rocks, than in the drink with a boat on the rocks.

There's something going on with Mean Streak?

I thought they buried Mean Streak opening night of HalloWeekends?

But then again, what do I know?

Is it still a streak even though it's no longer mean?
