Hi, I'm going for an interview for ride host on Monday. Is there any staff members here that can PM me about the recruitment process, and where to find accommodation if (Fingers crossed!) I get the job?
Thank you!

Firstly good luck! But remember staff at the park do monitor Towers forums including TowersTimes and TowersStreet so be extra careful when posting any let's say 'constructive feedback' online. Also welcome to TowersTimes!

Working at a Theme Park?

by CoasterTastic » Sun May 14, 2017 5:57 pm

Hi all, I'm new to the forum. :D

So eventually when I leave school, I would like to work at Alton Towers with the aim of operating a ride like nemesis, etc. I understand that you can't do this overnight and wondered if anyone on here who might work at a theme park, etc could give me some info about this? Many thanks. :)

I believe that you can become a ride operator as long as your 18 or older. I think they will require you to do a small period of ride hosting before becoming an operator though. They will train you to operate the ride so you will need pretty much no prior experience anyway.

You wouldn't go straight to a large coaster though. You'd be doing a season or so on a smaller rides or a couple of small ones first to get to grips with operating.

Good luck :)
