Working for Cedar Point is not a luxury experience if you simply want to work a few hours, collect a paycheck, and call it a day. You are not living in the most desirable conditions by any means, and you are working an incredibly strenuous job whether it be running up and down a ride platform, concentrating diligently at controls, or being a bag hawk at the entrance (on TTD, MF, GK, and Magnum). However, what makes the job worth it is what you put into it and what you take away from it. If you make the effort to interact with your coworkers beyond just working, enjoy the resort you have free roam of, and be that person who guests remember interacting with, you will have an experience like Marcel is having.
I found myself working there in HalloWeekends of 2013 to build a broader operations management background, and I found myself back there in 2014 because I wanted one last chance to not only learn, but be around some really incredible people to work with.
If I get a cutback sometime this Fall, I'll have to stop by and say Hello!

I'm sorry for not having updated my thread in the last couple of days, but as I have already said, I was pretty busy meeting up with friends, doing trips and planning my travels.
However, I found some time to give you another update of my life here at Cedar Point. This time, it is all about enjoying my time here, going to Kings Island, getting my first American paycheck and X-MAS in July!
Every once in a while, the crews are doing crew outings which means nothing else but having dinner at a random restaurant or hanging around somewhere. This time we went to Steak n' Shake and we combined our crew outing with our X-MAS in July gift exchange. My crew knew exactly what I love! That's why I got a T-Shirt of my favorite coaster Top Thrill Dragster and Hershey chocolate!
Daily life was going on, so just buckle up and enjoy my photos!
My first American paycheck!
Doug from last year's Texas/Midwest trip came visit me!
Together we went shopping and...
...visiting Cedar Point!
I'm so glad to have met this guy last year!
Just chillin' in Raptor's queues!
Hello! What's up?
Biggest tree in the park!
Maverick at night!
Sending postcards to my friends from all around the world!
Awesome, awesome, awesome. I didn't know what to expect when I first clicked this thread, and I did not expect this. This trip report is pretty unique. A report from a Cedar Point employee is something that everyone should look forward to. The best thing is that you left Germany and went to a place right in the middle of nowhere, just because you were a dedicated enthusiast. I am eager to see what's next on this trip report.
