Fall protection

Fall protection? Who needs protection from brilliantly colored leaves and crisp, cooler weather? Oh … that kind of fall. This morning started off with safety training. This is Richard: Richard spoke to our staff members who don't just dream of going high places as part of their job. These hard-working members of our team aim…

A bit of a stretch …

Okay, I admit I chose this photo so I can razz Josh about his uniform shirt not being tucked in properly. He's our Director of Human Resources Management and those HR types tend to notice untucked shirts, missing name badges, and not-quite-white shoes quicker than the rest of us. Josh is a sports nut who…

When your office is on the 10th floor …

… but you don't have any walls … … it's much appreciated when the railing for your safety harness gets at much TLC as you give to your coasters! Our Coaster Cats wear safety harnesses so they can "tie off" when they're up on the coaster structure. This new safety installation makes that process even…

Answer: Let them eat cake!

Question: When your staff works tirelessly for years to earn the distinction of being the first theme park in the nation to achieve SHARP status, a safety award, how should you celebrate? This hard-hat cake (and the Oreo cookie "dirt") was far too cute to eat. Happily, IT Director Joe's wife, Lana, made several other…

CPR = Check Pockets Regularly

Our annual CPR training for fulltimers is today. Here's James practicing chest compressions on Tim: With each compression, a few more items slipped out of Tim's pockets. And here's Craig practicing "baby CPR" on a charming little doll. Is that horror-flick Chucky? …or maybe a prop from the roadshow of Wicked.

Hold on, there…

If you followed this morning's tweets about our meeting with Sandor from IntaRide, you'll know I promised to get my mitts on some photos showing the progress on the boats for Pilgrims Plunge. Direct from the factory in Germany, here's a shot of one of the boats. We've received many emails asking about the restraint…

Where there’s smoke, there’s fire … and Bill

Three years ago — almost to the day, we blogged about our fire extinguisher training. Included a shot of Bill putting out a fire. During this year's training, Craig (our Safety Director) took a photo for me. Same guy. There's Bill again. What are the chances? We've got 80 full-time employees and we all took…

Shaken, but some weren’t stirred

I've been wanting to post for the past hour, but keep getting derailed by all the emails asking about The Earthquake. Thanks for caring. The coasters are fine. (Oh, and we are, too.) It was 4:36 this morning. The rattling began. Later, I thought of the ratty motels featured in movies and sitcoms — those…
