What are the best parks to work at for full time summer employment? Especially ones that have employee housing at a respectable price (ex. Cedar Point is like 30$ a week).
I was recently told I will be thrown out of my house starting memorial day weekend and I don't have anywhere to live until...
What do you think are the most financially stable theme park chains and which do you think are the most unstable major chains.

I found this on Intamin's site. Has anybody heard anything else about the 12 Inversion Coaster? it looks sick

In the past they have just let me stay on and ride a rollercoaster over and over (Zoomerang) 37 times before I got off the ride, Puked, and then fell asleep on a bench.
How would I go about...
What ever happened to Alan Schilke of Arrow? Is he with S&S now?He is very abstract in his designs (The Fishook Coaster and X) I would really love to know what ever happened to him. It would be a shame to lose him from the Industry (and I assume Ron Toomer is retired)
I heard a rumour he was...
