You know the ones…Daylight Saving Time Ends on the 4th (Fall Back), Election Day the 6th (Must Remember to Vote!!), Veterans Day Sunday 11th (Thank a Veteran) and of course Thanksgiving Day the 22nd ….now for me November 13th is both circled and underlined because that is both my Wedding Anniversary (19 years strong!) and also the Start Read More...

No Tricks – Just Treats – It’s October!

It’s hard to believe that we’re entering the final quarter of 2018!  It’s been a great year thus far and we hope things have been going well for all of you too! October means Fall Festivals, Haunted Mazes, Fright Nights, as well as fall maintenance, winterizing equipment, and preparations for refurbishing. There are seminars starting for continued education or certifications. But there is also a KEY event that takes place in October that I would like to focus on for this month’s Read More...

 Did you see that Face ?!?!

Have you ever looked at riders faces while you are riding your favorite thrill ride or go-kart? More than likely the answer is No. May I ask why Not?  - My thought is for those few moments you lose focus on the cares of your life. You are so in the moment - the last thing you want to do is look at someone you don’t know. But you could be missing out on the chance to see your fellow man/woman Read More...

THESE CRAZY, HAZY DAYS OF SUMMER!

Everything but LAZY for the amusement industry!  August is the final month of summer when things are in full swing. Many children have returned to school and others are preparing to return in just a few weeks. Are your seatbelts still in good condition?  Exposure during these past few months has done some damage, even if you can’t see it – the material breaks down in UV.  Be sure to have replacements on hand so you don’t miss a single day Read More...

Time for a Summer Adventure…

  Independence Day Fireworks, Car Shows, Drive Inn Movies (Yes I remember those)  Daytona Racing, Summer Blockbuster Movies,  Family Cook outs, Weekend Cruising, Trips to the beach (lake or river) and Trips to the local Amusement Park or Carnival (also My birthday)!! All these things remind me of summer more specifically -July! July is the half way point of the year; No one is thinking of Ice or Snow in the Northern States. Any thoughts of “snow birds” in the South are Read More...

Meet Chad Reed ~ A Very Amusing Person ~

My Introduction to Amusements It’s been said that if you wait long enough or search hard enough what you are looking for will sometimes find you. I believe this to be a fact, because this job found me!  I have worked in many  different “jobs” over the years. And all were fine…Ok most were fine.
