Haha no I'm not giving Patrick the finger
So yeah thats not a bad idea ;) JK
Disney and Cedar Point have the most extensive housing programs. But just about any park that uses international employees will have some sort of housing that you might be able to get into.
At the time Six Flags had several internship programs at SFOG, Astroworld, SFGAdv, and SFGA that had housing options. I'm pretty sure these programs dissolved when Premier came in. But you could contact their respective human resource offices to check in. Well not Astroworld of course...
Here is the page for Six Flags Over Georgia's jobs.
13 Boomerang, 9 SLC, and 8 B-TR clones
Cedar Point is the park you probably want if you wanna go away for the summer.
I'm no CP 'fanboy' (anymore) but it was a great time! They have dorms right there across from the wildcat (the infamous 'Cedars') as well as some more right off the causeway (I think some people also stayed in old... whats that old hotel on the beach?.. there were also girl dorms next to corkscrew/wardrobe, but I think they may be gone.)
It was a great experience, for the most part. I worked there '91-'93. Get in early, try to get to talk to a ride manager if that's what you wanna do. You may get stuck in foods, I did my first year.
They work you hard though! We worked 6 days a week. It was great having other 'coaster geeks' as roommates and playing in the park quite often. We also loved goin to places like Kennywood, Kings Island, Kentucky Kingdom, Geauga Lake (oops, not anymore thanks CF)... on our days off.
I've been thinkin for years about doing a big article about my time at the point. But I hate censoring myself and ACE probably wouldn't print the story. If I published it online, I would probably get sued and get death threats.
We were young, and sometimes dumb. Did dumb things. And of course, there were 'upper people' who would try to... umm.. how should I say this... Uhmmm... you could figure it out. Let's just say I didn't get to go back in '94... There was def. corruption there, etc. Like most jobs, I guess. Well, alotta jobs anyway.
I worked at Six Flags Dallas as an intern in '95 and they said they'd have housing when I got there. They didn't. It was a bad situation, but I'm sure it's much better now. If you like CP, go stay there for the summer, despite all the crap, they were some of the best summers of my life. *** Edited 12/14/2007 10:53:04 PM UTC by J7G3***
Working at Cedar Point was a blast! They don't treat their employees right though.
But gee it was fun :) Had my first boyfriend there. Good place to come out at, a big 'homo' population.
