  1. ^while they may need the most to operate, most rides have at least one other ride paired with them and they're not as popular so they need staff badly. I worked AE/Viking fury and loved every second of it compared to being sent to some of the bigger rides.

  2. ^you'll probably hear in February.

    I started in the 2015 season in rides and loved it. Very fast paced, got to test ride all the time and everyone there is focused and doesn't make it a boring work environment. But you have to be 16. I was given a list of rides to choose from but the later you interview the smaller the list gets. Also, when I interviewed in 2015 they put people at Banshee who were applying for the first time so don't get your hopes down for anything but MT as that will be the ride everyone wants next season probably. That being said. Don't walk in your first day expecting to be driving the coaster.

    Last season I worked in merchandise. My love for my job turned around. A lot of people want to start drama. And unless you are 15, you will have a supervisor younger than you. A lot of your job is standing behind a register, especially if you're under 16 due to labor laws. Overall, merchandise, while I made a lot of friends, is where I will be returning to next year if I do.

    If you're in it for the money. Go to foods, they get paid the most, if you want a good environment I would say go to Merch or admissions and then apply to rides when you turn 16.

  3. Not sure about the drink/dining plans since we don't have that option but our Funpix account is linked to each of our cards.

    You can do that? I had my FunPix account linked to my card but didn't know you could link it to other cards. That is kind of a big loophole ripe for abuse.

    Technically you are allowed up to two cards per account. Unless that changes next season. Also interested to see if accounts will have to be completely remade.
  4. Friday night when I was at the park, during one of the pre recorded fireworks announcements throughout the day I noticed they said it was presented by some website (didn't catch the name). When did this start? Seems like KI is taking a lot of sponsorships recently. First Fast Lane. Now fireworks...

  5. Has the park said if the coaster will be painted/stained?  I love the look of fresh wood, but within 6 months, unstained wood turns grey.

     

    Just wondering about aesthetics...

    I have not seen anything officially, but it would only make sense for them to put some sort of protective coating on it, which probably would protect the wood and keep it looking nice.

  6. Since it's not listed under the FAQ, for those that purchased it this year, can the entire family use one account as Disney does with their Memory Maker?

    They could change things, but that's basically how it worked this year. If you or your child/spouse was in a pic you could walk up and get it no problem.

    As of 2016 you are allowed 2 season passes per account. But that could easily change next year. You can give your kids the pass or have one kid pass and one adult pass to run around with and basically just ask them to add any picture and unless it was censored for any reason they will do it. Or you could use the self serve kiosks which can sometimes be finiky with scanning cards

  7. Just got back from a nice short trip to the park. Arrived about 10:45 Firehawk, Zepher, lunch, Racer, Banshee, The Bat, Eifel Tower, BLSC, Beast. By then the boys were coastered out and we left around 3. The park was packed as I expected on such a nice day. By the time we left the food lines were nuts.

    Is there drink refill station in Action Zone anywhere? I didn't go hunting over by Invertigo. If there isnt, there needs to be one.

    I think Chicken Shack and Ice Scream Zone can refill but no dedicated Coca-Cola refill stations

  8. There was...but FunPix is more than digital downloads......it's connected to passes, connected to apps and a website where you can see/edit your photos and even share. Not a 1 time deal. With FunPix you have until the season is over to claim all of them....unlimited, no additional cost unless you want them printed at the park.

    it also discounts the prints to 5 dollars

    EDIT: also you still can get one individual photo for digital download nad access it on the FunPix website still. But if you ride more than 3 rides with pictures or want your front get eine too then it is better r to just buy the Daily or Season FunPix
