    Hi all- Jes here. I thought I would quickly say hello to the KI Central community and share my excitement for the upcoming season- my 18th with Cedar Fair. I know how important the Food & Beverage operation is to our guests and to all of you, our most passionate fans. It's important to me as well, in part because my friends and family visit the park frequently. But also because at the end of the day, I'm a theme park nerd myself. 

    I want you to know that I am absolutely committed to elevating the Food & Beverage experience at our park. Part of doing that includes seeking out feedback every day. I want to know when our team is rocking it, and when we can do better. Although I won't be an active poster in this community, I can assure you I will personally read every single comment posted here, just as I will when comments are left at Guest Services. You will see me constantly in the park, working with our team to respond to that feedback. When you see me, please feel free to say hello and tell me about your experience. I'd love to hear from you. 

    Thank you for your past and future patronage, and for being such loyal fans over the years.

    Its so amazing seeing all of these stories! While still currently working at the park as I have since April 2017, it is so nice to see just how many different yet amazing stories I see here.  
    I currently work as an Admissions Team Lead in the Admissions and GS Department at Kings Island. I am almost certain even if you dont know me or have never met me you have probably seen me at some point in your journey through the gate. Everyone often thinks of the Rides Department as the first department you think of when you think "Kings Island". However, in many aspects we are one of the most crucial departments in the park, with so many things going into the process of entering the park that one does not necessarily think about. The friendships I have made while on and off the clock have been timeless. I pride myself in knowing at least one person from every single department. The park knowledge I gained from roaming the park for countless hours as a guest has really helped me strive to give guests the best possible experience possible. The stories I have are numerous and boundless, the conversations with guests even from 2017 I still remember to this day. Talking with a guest on memorial day about his experience in the military for ten minutes, P&G days, others as well. Theres just something so special about seeing a family with an ear to ear smile coming through the gates, seeing their palpable excitement and even on those days where you may feel a bit down, seeing that gives me the drive and purpose to do my job and provide them with the best day possible. Amongst my most memorable moments was doing the "Best Day Hype" last year in one of my first shifts after being promoted. Despite the smaller size of the crowd, I was able to get everybody riled up and excited and shout along to their favorite rides. That was a great memory. We are the first impression you see of the park and that makes it even more important for us to give you the best experience possible. The department is kind of like a second home to me with so many great people that have become some of my best friends. Love my #KIBlueCrew  Im going to miss working here when that day comes.

    I worked in Guest Services from 2015-2018. I think my favorite memory was when a young woman and her mom came in to the office looking for some information on KI's accessibility policy for guests with disabilities. I was going through the process with them, and one of the questions we ask when doing our assessments is "is there anything else I need to know to keep you safe today". The teenage girl mumbled something, so I asked if she could say that again because I missed it. Her mom said "Oh nothing, she was at the campgrounds with her friends yesterday, and they were being mean to her and she is having a bad day today because of that." So I went and filled out the paperwork needed for her to safely ride, and when I came back, I also printed out 15 dollars worth of in park credit called "Beagle Bucks" to give to the girl to help make her day a little better. I handed the sheet to the mom and went over the information, and then handed them the beagle bucks and explained what they were and said "I hope this can help make your day here the best day ever". The mom welled up and could not get words out. She simply reached her arms out as an embrace, so we all had a mini "group hug" as she kept saying "thank you so much" over and over. It was such a small gesture. 15 dollars to buy a stuffed animal or a couple of blue ice cream cones, but it changed their whole attitude and day. I loved days like that in the office. There were so many times were you would get wore down by tough situations, but then you helped someone solve a problem, and you could feel their gratitude, and it you remember why you love the job and the park.

    Jes got a reaction from MDMC01 in The new KI Director of Food & Beverage is...   
    Hi all- Jes here. I thought I would quickly say hello to the KI Central community and share my excitement for the upcoming season- my 18th with Cedar Fair. I know how important the Food & Beverage operation is to our guests and to all of you, our most passionate fans. It's important to me as well, in part because my friends and family visit the park frequently. But also because at the end of the day, I'm a theme park nerd myself. 

    I want you to know that I am absolutely committed to elevating the Food & Beverage experience at our park. Part of doing that includes seeking out feedback every day. I want to know when our team is rocking it, and when we can do better. Although I won't be an active poster in this community, I can assure you I will personally read every single comment posted here, just as I will when comments are left at Guest Services. You will see me constantly in the park, working with our team to respond to that feedback. When you see me, please feel free to say hello and tell me about your experience. I'd love to hear from you. 

    Thank you for your past and future patronage, and for being such loyal fans over the years.

    Jes McAdam-Sellers
