I've always said my ideal retirement "job" to pick up a couple of bucks, and stay active, would be by doing something at a minor league ballpark. What about theme parks? I was just thinking I could work at like Knoebels and buy something not too expensive with enough room for grandkids.
Anybody done this? Doing it?
What would be the other parks?
(I'm not retiring to Orlando...)
I'm many years from retirement, but I think that its a good idea on your part. As parks want to expand their operating season, hiring people who aren't in school helps them fill out the roster during the school season. Plus, you're choosing to be there, so I'd imagine that you'd check every restraint with a smile on your face, which is always a plus.
Coast2Coaster (see the link below) is a great resource for figure out where all the parks are across the world. It maps the data from RCDB, and puts everything on a global map, where you can play with the filter settings to see where all of the parks are in a given area. If you chose something in central east PA (not sure what the exact lingo is for the area) you'd be around Knoebles, Dorney, and Hershey, and plus a ton of other smaller parks -- while also being a prime location for road trips as well. Good luck to you! http://www.coast2coaster.eu/
