Many a childhood is colored with a visit to a theme park. Hot weather, overpriced food, and annoying fellow patrons are nothing compared to the thrill of your first coaster or seeing your favorite character in the flesh for the first time. Depending on your perspective and your tolerance for excessive capitalism, it might even still be worth the hassle all these years later. 

Going to the parks is one thing. Experiencing them as a worker is another story entirely. Some workers from Disney World, Six Flags, and other parks took to Reddit to give the most wholesome and...not so wholesome behind-the-scenes park stories possible. Keep this in mind next time you think about Splash Mountain
