Alumni events for former theme park employees?
Written by Robert Niles
Cedar Point's inviting its former employees back for a reunion.Tweet
The event is slated for Labor Day weekend, Aug. 29-Sept. 1. A Toledo Blade story reports that tickets for alumni will be $24.95 and available online, though it does not provide a URL.
Cedar Point includes an alumni section on its website, where former employees can search for one another and reconnect. As a former Walt Disney World cast member, I've wondered why other theme park companies don't do the same thing. After all, many of us remain loyal fans of the parks where we worked, and could be encouraged to return for visits more often, as well as to continue being ambassadors for the park, encouraging family and friends to visit as well.
If Disney can have special programs for family reunions, weddings, honeymoons, quinceañeras and other events, why can't it do something targeted at alumni? If you are a former theme park employee and know about, or have participated in, a park-sanctioned alumni event or club, tell us about it in the comments.
