My one and only true connection with a theme park was a year or so stint as a volunteer trainer's assistant at the dolphin show that Six Flags Magic Mountain used to have. All of the above, and anything else I didn't write down here, is subject to change without notice.
The handsomely-feathered lady on my glove in the photo is a golden eagle, named Skye. Unfortunately, she's no longer with us. She was killed in June 2008 when she landed in the lion enclosure at the Greater Vancouver Zoo, and subsequently became a free lunch for one of the lionesses.
If you want to know the full story on that, drop me a note. It's not pretty.
