In theory, working a theme park is a fun gig. After all, you get to spend your days surrounded by delicious snacks, water slides, roller-coasters, cuties in swimsuits and costumed characters, what's not to love, right?!
Despite the conceptual whimsy of getting paid to hang out at a theme park, the reality is it's a job just like anything else, and that means there are some very, very bad days. In fact, the very aspects that make theme parks fun can also make them incredibly dangerous (hellooo upside-down roller-coasters).
It should be noted that most theme parks are incredibly safe 99% of the time, and statistically, riding a rollercoaster is far safer than riding in a car. However, that 1% makes for some pretty brutal stories.
Worked at a Six flags as a sound technician, so I spent most of my time backstage with the characters and actors. One time I walked backstage to find a headless Bugs Bunny and Scooby Doo having sex, costumes just unzipped, not off. Not exactly a horror story but definitely scarring.
