    Training can be such a joke. You're given 2 days, although you can request more (which is frowned upon by trainers), to learn 8 rides. It's not that hard if you can remember all the safety rules and how to operate each ride, but my training partner got 3 days off before starting so she had forgotten everything on her first day. I feel like you can tell them you have a ride fully down and they would believe you. They do a test afterwards, but if you memorize most of it you're good.

    Training for rides is rushed through whether you’re ready to work or not. Safety training is lax and very little is done to help prepare ride operators for emergency situations.

    Basic. You are given 2 days of informative training in a room of new hires. All procedure and emergency info. Then you go to the shops you are assigned and if you're lucky, given good training tips. There is no one to really explain what to do. If you never used a register before, you learn about its function at the informative training portion and only use 1 register to practice on for 3 mimutes and its only with the new touch screens. If you work at a shop with the old touch pads, you're expected to study how to use it from your packet. Again, if you're lucky someone at your shop will help you learn how to use the register. Cleaning procedure is not consistent, if you're closing not everyone closes the same so you always want a supervisor to check the shop to make sure you cleaned correctly.

    It's called Scare school and dress rehearsal, they teach you on how to act as monsters and how you dress in the costumes according to the characters. For Black Out and Line Control Attendants, we dressed uniforms and make sure we get our spots in Maze or outside of Maze and learn how to control the guests and keep eyes on etc. It's A LOT of fun to learn so much. I love it.

    Very smooth job training. Show you around the entire park. Initial Training are sort of rude.
