Job Title – Ride Operator

For those who genuinely love working outdoors in all types of weather, love encouraging children’s enthusiasm and joy (and would also enjoy encouraging their parents and family members to share in their child’s enthusiasm and joy), becoming a Funderland Ride Operator and team member will be a fun, personally challenging, and very rewarding experience.  As a team member you’ll be juggling guest and ride safety as your top priority while simultaneously welcoming guests and having fun right along with them as they escape their daily routine and let loose on Funderland’s attractions.  If you enjoy challenging, engaged work that involves multitasking on the fly in a way that can bring joy to both yourself and your guests through your personal drive to encourage a memorably fun, relaxed and carefree day at the park for all, we’re looking for you.  Have you noticed ride operators at amusement parks that stuck in your pleasant memory of your day at the park not only for their cheery, upbeat and individual personalities but also because you felt safe on their rides due to their attentiveness to you and the ride?  That is exactly what we’re looking for.  Some basic qualities necessary to truly excel at this job are:  the ability to self-manage, multitask responsibilities, and take pride in your work and your ride, an ability to weather difficult situations calmly and use common sense while doing so, the ability to lift up to 50 pounds (children) for loading and unloading rides, abide by all state, federal, and industry safety regulations, an inherent joy in working with people and guests who come from all backgrounds and walks of life, and the knowledge of yourself that you tend to be on the bright side of life even when things aren’t so rosy overall, including in your personal life.

  • Act in a manner that embodies Funderland’s core values

Visitor Comments

I’m impressed by how Funderland caters to families … The great thing is the simplicity. The park size is easily manageable for parents with young kids … Our family is pumped that we finally discovered Funderland Amusement Park and can’t wait to go again.
