Theme parks are the best (work) way to meet new friends, boy/girl friends, and even newly weds. Just ask some theme parks employees in here including myself. If you want to meet most common to your liking then working at a theme park is probably the best way to meet new exciting people either from around the world or just locals!
Form long friendships! No Joke, Listen to what the park(s) say...

I can't wait till I'm old enough to work at my home park. No matter what my job is there, I'm pretty sure I'll meet at least one other coaster freak. ;)

They are a great place for getting to know people better, I have gone to parks a number of times with friends and they bring their friends and we all get to know each other and have a ton of fun!

I have to agree, working at a amusment park helped me overcome my shyness, and led me to meet some new friends and some people i regret ever meeting....(if you know who i am then you know who i'm talking about). I found my best friend, and my soul mate working at a park. He is the most wonderful person, so differnet then anyone else. And i strongly believe if my mom didnt make me go fill out an application for the park, i would have never met my Nick (the ice411), because he lives sooo far about 40 miles away from me. But i'm soo happy that we met became friends and fell in love. Its now been one year and 9 months as an official couple, and i dont regret one moment of it.
theres something inside me that pulls beneth the surface...(linkin park)

My uncle and Aunt met for the first time while working at Knott's. My Aunt was a waitress and my Uncle was a security guard.

I still stay in touch with many of the folks I used to work with. Great bunch. Heck, if it weren't for Great America, I wouldn't have met Romil who took me to a club one night where we met a soon-to-be friend Dae who got me a job at Interactive Network which got me the experience to get a job at Etak which laid-off 60% of its workforce which resulted in getting my current job at a company who relocated to San Diego where I met my future wife! Seriously!

I've got agree with this post, but in a different way.
I've always been friends with this one woman, but her and I took a trip to SFoG and we really bonded. It was a rainy, Monday but we didn't care because we were having fun, shooting the breeze, and enjoying one of our common interests and passions, thrill rides. We had the chance to experience, discuss, and enjoy rides in a way that only two thrill-seekers could. Because of her, I had the opportunity to ride (and enjoy) Acrophobia, a ride that I normally wouldn't have gone on.
