Retiring by a park

Postby MisterBrow » Wed Feb 27, 2019 3:35 pm

I am not close to retiring, but in the window of picking a goal. 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?

Meister Brau just wants a path from CC to SM at SFA, meal plan burrito, some shade, and a restroom back there.

If you have a pulse then Cedar Point would love to hire you to work a few weekends in October.

I've always had a fantasy that I'd eventually retire, move to Hershey, and run the Scrambler or something.

When we retire (HA!), my wife and I are going to buy a small RV and travel the country, going to amusement park to amusement park.

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!

Even though I’m nowhere close to retiring, I would love to retire near Knoebels and work there— it’s my favorite park of all time!
