    Interesting Things Ride-Ops Do

    I had a "dang she mad" moment when some kid unbuckle the seat belt in the empty seat next to him as the train was moving out on Mystic. I would also be lying if I didn't say I get one of those moments at least twice a week.

    the most common question at Mystic: Is this a water ride? Can I put _____ in the truck? Is this the Son of Beast?

    Yelling at ride ops??

    I work at Mystic Timbers which is a 48-inch ride. We have huge stacks of the purple wristband, that I try to put on kids if they make the height. I have had numerous times of parents yelling at me because " You are letting all these people in front of us" ... all because I was checking her height. The only negative thing is, we only the 48-inch wrist and nothing else. TBH depends on which greeter.... Banshee greeter= sunburn (happened to me on Saturday) but Mystic greeter isn't horrible on slow days but Saturdays it's a rough hour.
  5. Mystic is also IOE.. and last season had an issue and that why it went down to 2 trains last season for a couple weeks

    Usually, if we a see a phone out, when they come back into the station, we ask them to delete what they took. Mystic Shed has a camera so we can usually tell when someone recording so we always ask them to delete the picture or video right infront of us.
  7. my supervisor was shoved by a guest due to a bag. Usually, most people aren't too bad about it. Just the rude stand out. I guessed one dude got kicked out of the line for being drunk and as he came out he took my height stick and threw it in the bushes. I kinda just stood there and was really confused.

    Park Nitpicks

    I know if I am at separator, I try to work with people but since our station is super small we can only have 2 trains in a row. If you are nice about it, I would pretty much let you go there as long as you don't mind the extra wait.
  9. Honestly, if staffing is good which it is during summer, we have 2 greeters. Anything at mystic can get stressful *cough cough* Separator. Separator is the main cause of problems.
  10. I was rehired back to the Tenders (Mystic). During my interview, they recommended me to work at Mystic. I was in shocked because it was the brand new ride and I was a 1st year. When we had training 2 weeks before the park opened we couldn't even touch the ride. We did all our training standing at greeter. When Passpreview night happened, it was a brand new experience for everyone. No one on the crew even checked bars with people on the train. I actually didn't get to ride Mystic till opening day when I went as a guest. I have created so many memories and became friends with everyone on my crew. The hours are long, since Mystic is ERT, I have to be there at 8:45 am while other rides it is 9:20am. I have spent so many hours at the island during the summer and can't wait for it again. This is the one job, that I love going to. I know my supervisor will help me or even back me up. The job teaches you to get thick skin and how to deal with guest. I can't tell how many times I have been cussed out this past summer. I even went back for Winterfest but sadly Mystic was closed for the last week. Can't wait for this summer

    "Is this a water ride?" I can't tell how many times I heard this summer at Mystic.

    No idea if anyone said anything about this but Mystic Shed also has the SOB anti-rollback and chain lift in it.

    Ideas for the Crypt building?

    If we go off what crew runs the ride, Shake Rattle and Roll is consider Rivertown along with Backlot Stunt Coaster.
  14. Honestly, I have no idea.
  15. I can confirm it is 35 degrees for us to start the ride and get her going.
