All of us have had good and bad experiences with Theme Park Team Members. Wether it be at Disney or Holy Land, I invite you to share your stories on this thread. Since most of you will probably tell your Disney Cast Member stories, my stories will be at lesser known theme parks.
My "Best" Story:
The mute ticket taker - Knoebles, Ellysburg, PA
I was at Knoebels this summer on a very hot and crowded summer day, so I was surprised that Twister (a great woodie) was a walk on. Right in front of me were two men who did not have enough tickets to ride. The ticket taker was mute and smiled at the men and pointed at their tickets. They were confused, and I told them they did not have enough tickets, and the ticket taker nodded at me. They didn't seem to be very good with math, so the ticket taker and I helped them. They went up to the ride, and I gave the him my tickets, he smiled at me and pushed the tickets back. I got a free ride.
My "Worst" Story:
The one train team on the Great White - Morey's Piers, Wildwood, NJ
The fall team at a regional amusement park. They always run one train, they close off rows, and they socialize between cycles. I counted that the ride was getting an hourly capacity of 320 people an hour. They randomly shut down the ride, and when I came back later, the ride was getting about 288 people an hour. I rode and, while Great White is probably the best ride at Morey's and is worth a wait, this was unacceptable.
