Vortex was my main coaster. I operated the ride as well as all posistions. We rotated almost ever hour from op to load & unload. I did work on the rapids for a day. Man how boaring. I was there for 3 hours. Oh yeah and of course the kalidiscope. The employees of vortex swithced between rides.

At CP I worked on the railroad as fireman and engineer--even a train girl on occasion working on the platform of crossing gates. That's pretty difficult considering I'm a guy.

Not at a park but at the local fair I worked the Musicfest,(similar to alpine bobs), The Zipper*(my favorite carny ride) a few games 1. Throw the softball in the basket, Throw the Softball in the big milk container, and my favorite game to work the put a frog on a teeter totter and make him jump into a big container, I got so good at this that when the force 10 (a ride that went really fast and produced alot of wind) was running I could make the frog on Teeter 1 go in bucket 3 from the wind...Worked the Carnie for 4 years when it was here, had fun and for some reason I found girls really liked carnies (don't know why)

I'm back on Power Tower this year too!! WHEEEE!

I'd really like to work Power Tower some day. I don't think I would get tired of it. Too bad I live out on the West Coast. Those giant S&S complexes are so amusing to watch and to be around. I liked CP's Power Tower a lot better than Knott's Supreme Scream when I visited Summer 2002.

I'm telling you, noncoaster rides are so much more fun to work at than coasters.

MaGnUmKeLly
02-25-2004, 06:51 AM
Thats the truth. I love working coasters don't get me wrong. Working Power Tower was a blast. Like when I work the red side while in controls. Thats a lot of fun. Hector I will miss working with you there. :(

Hector
02-25-2004, 08:26 AM
Yeah, Power Tower is a whole lot of fun (mostly the crew last year) and I'm excited to go back. I'm going to miss you Kelly, but you will visit many times, so it won't be as bad.;) And if I didn't LOVE working at cedar Point, I wouldn't be going for a third year all the way from here in SoCal.

To stay kinda on topic, my first summer in 2002 I worked in games, I worked almost every game along the Oceana Midway (going from the main midway to DT and WT) and back in area three AKA the Gemini Games Area. My two main games were, Gemini Speedball (guess the speed of your third pitch also found at the front of park; now it's a bank-a-ball one of the cheapest cheesiest [not in a good way either] games ever) and Gemini Top Glo (A Top Glo from Bob's Space Racer's (http://www.bobsspaceracers.com/highres1/index.html) with Classic Boomerang (http://www.cartoonnetwork.com/boomerang/)cartoon prizes). That was a fun year too.

I worked at Splash Mountain at WDW summer of 2000. I worked at Alien Encounter, Astro Orbitor, Carosel of Progress, Buzz Lightyear, and Time Keeper this past summer. Of all of them, Alien Encounter was the best. Especially the cat walk part. I loved watching the people scream. AE, you will be missed.

Hey Cid. Yes, I'm back. Good to know I haven't been forgotten. I just started a new job at Disney which has been eating 99.9999% of my time. I'm now an official computer programmer. If you ever in the Orlando/Celebration area, look me up. :)

That would be a fun ride to work at. I only got to experience it once, it was one of my Disney favorites. It's sad that Disney is turning a truly frightening ride into a cartoon.
