  1. If you are coming from the north, you will go PAST the park and turn left on Western Row Rd. If you are coming from the south, you will turn right on Western Row Rd which is the traffic light at the end of the exit ramp from 71N. Once on Western Row, its the first light. Turn left on to One Team Way and follow that road (and all the cars) to security post 2. Tell the guard there you are here for an interview and he will point you in to the associate lot. Associate Services and HR are both outside of the employee entrance at security post 3.
  2. Buckle your seatbelt! It causes you to lose your rhythm to stop and buckle someone's belt. Also, don't take it personally if I pull the belt out of your hands and buckle it for you. I do it all day long and can do it much faster than you can. If you are the parent of a small child, do not insist on putting your child's restraint down before sitting down. It is literally our job to ensure they are safely restrained so just let us do it. I can't count the number of times I have had to stand there and wait because a parent insists that THEY are the only ones that can make sure their kid is
  3. Robbie's in here trying to steal all the referral bonuses. In all seriousness, Coney is an awesome place to work. The end of the season is even more fun as the weather gets cooler and the entire feel of the park is a little bit more relaxed as a result. It's an awesome crew with lots of fun people, and some really great classic rides (one of very few places left in the country with a Tempest, for example).
  4. Yes, we absolutely are allowed to tell them to show us their camera roll and tell them to delete any on ride videos or photos they have. Unfortunately most people who video now a days do it via snapchat, so there is no deleting it to enforce a consequence of breaking the rules. But I definitely made a preteen delete not only 3 videos taken on our ride, but also videos taken on two other coasters earlier in the day once.
  5. After discussing with the parks today, we are pleased to announce that we are able to have on-site registration for any last minute attendees. So if you still would like to come, you can just show up at either park! Please let me know in this thread if you are planning to register on-site so I know to expect you. If you will be LATE (arriving after check in ends), you need to let me know so I can make arrangements to meet you with your registration materials but that is perfectly fine! For Coney: Enter through Gate 1 and tell the parking attendants you are a last minute add for the ACE gr
  6. You can arrive late! That's just the times that one of us will be out at the front gate. We will leave registration materials at the front gate with a Stricker's worker after the event check-in window.
  7. EXCUSE ME HIS AIRPLANE WAS BROKEN. IT DIDN'T GO UP. No, your kid is like 8 months old and can't pull back on a lever.
  8. One of the favorite stories that goes around Coney about me was last year when I was working the kiddie airplanes (a ride I wasn't even assigned to work, I'd just hopped in to help out the overwhelmed op) and got cussed out THREE TIMES over the course of an hour because the mini golf course was closed. Twice by the same person! My favorite was when I informed her it was due to low staffing (this was our last week of weekday operations and most of our rides kids were back in school), she told me I should have planned better. Yes, because clearly the person operating the kiddie airplanes is full
  9. Friendly reminder that online registration ends in less than 24 hours!
  10. Hey KIC members! If you are interested in attending Southern Ohio Summerfest next weekend (July 28 and 29) at Coney Island and Stricker's Grove, you are invited to attend as a guest! You will not need a "sponsor" ACE member, just select "guest" for your registration type and enter your KIC username where it asks for your sponsoring member information. This is a rare chance to experience Stricker's Grove on a non-public day and there are LOTS of goodies (such as free soft drinks and snacks all day at Stricker's!) and a meal at each park included in your registration. You can register
