I'm a ride operator, I enjoy it! I work in kiddyland and safety is a must no matter how many days til opening ,safety procedure are taken. Safety of the ride, and safety upon us the operator . It needs to be known that after set up and passing inspection, safety doesn't stop. Everyday Throughout the day rides are inspected by opetators,supervisors and management if needed it!! We do realize that after we've been busy anything could become loose or out of place!! So as an operator I take the safety of the ride I operate serious. I do undetstand that I can't prevent or predict anything but I will be in a position, I pray not though , if anything did happen it won't be because my neglecting my safety procedures!!! So,safety first, my goal to remain safe at all times,remai. professional, and always Smile and treat the family kind, even their not!!! Aslong as there's laughter and fun from the little ones, my day has been made. SAFETY FIRST AT ALL TIMES!!! TOGETHER WE WILL DO IT!!
