I work at an amusement park where only half of the actors are actual actors. The car ride was kind of relaxing, compared to the events that had led up to it. After a while of sitting in the car however, my back brushing against the seat, I felt a familiar sticky sensation on my skin.
I had been wearing a loose, thick shirt so I hadn't noticed right away that I had started to bleed again. Also, the journey into the underground had kept my mind fully occupied, so maybe I just hadn't paid any attention to fleeting discomfort. Now that I was leaning against the backrest, the fabric rubbing against my skin, I finally noticed the dampness.
"Sorry, could you pull over for just a second?" I begged my co-worker. Darius nodded and parked near the side of the road.

xI work at an amusement park where only half of the actors are actual actors. First off, I'd like to say that I'm sorry for not responding to any of the comments on my last post. I was feeling rather sad and decided it would be better not to spread my bad vibes. Then again, I cannot claim that I'm doing any better at the moment.
As of me writing this, I'm riding shotgun in my manager's pick-up truck. Dale hasn't said a word in two hours, he's just staring at the road ahead of us clutching the steering wheel so hard his knuckles have turned white. He's muttering incoherent stuff I can't understand, but I keep hearing the words "Shit" and "Fuck" amidst his ramblings, so I assume the rest is PG-13 as well.

I work at an amusement park where only half of the actors are actual actors. After the horrors of yesterday night, I tried to get at least some rest in the early morning hours, but laid wide awake. At around ten, when the sun was already high in the sky, Dale came knocking on my door.
He greeted me with a forced smile, obviously trying to appear confident. He looked like he hadn't gotten a wink of sleep either. "Are you ready?" he asked softly.
I swallowed and bit my lip. "I don't want to do this," I confessed.
"I know," Dale muttered. I remember thinking there was something off about him. As if he was quarrelling or struggling with himself. The frown on his face looked deeply conflicted.
Ever since I arrived here, I found it hard to trust anyone in this home. For all I know, it's like Bridget said, they could most certainly sell me out. I'm... keep reading on reddit ➡
I work at an amusement park where only half of the actors are actual actors. Officially, I'm fired now, but then again, I've spent the last twenty-four hours or something driving around with my manager, so that really doesn't matter all that much.
Dale drove all day and all night. When we finally pulled over at a rest stop, he told me to stay in the truck and went outside to get himself some coffee.
I did as he told me. My seat had gotten all soft and weary and my butt hurt from not having stood upright for so long. I almost felt like the car was absorbing me. I leaned over to take a look into the rearview mirror. My hair was matted and my eyes bloodshot. Ever since we had fled from the park, I hadn't been able to shake that feeling of my reflection not being my own. Don't get me wrong, it's no one else's, it just... isn't mine.

I used to work at an amusement park where only half of the actors are actual actors. While I wasn't sure about this yesterday, trusting my gut and therefore the bunny-headed girl has actually paid off for once. I didn't enlist Dale or his family's help because by now, I trust them just about as much as, you guessed it, some random rabbit. That doesn't mean I don't understand where Dale was coming from. I do and I don't even blame him, but it's hard to stay rational when you realize a person would willingly trade you for another.
Calling a co-worker would definitely not have been an option, seeing as it took Dale over a whole day to get us here. So, if I had been to call one of my friends, they would not only have to drive all the way out here with no detailed knowledge of the location except maybe their navigation system, they would also have to ta... keep reading on reddit ➡
I work at an amusement park where only half of the actors are actual actors. Do I though? Should I say I used to instead? Scratch it, it's unimportant. After what I learned yesterday, I feel like I couldn't take it all in if I tried.
I woke up when the first bright beams of morning sunlight found their way through the windscreen of Dale's pick-up truck. Slowly opening my eyes, I couldn't remember where I was at first. Then, everything came rushing back to me and I admit I felt like throwing up.
"You're awake," Dale remarked from beside me. "How are you?"
"Awful," I muttered, rubbing my eyes. "Were you awake all that time? How long was I out for?"
Taking a look at the car radio's display, he replied, "Six hours I think. And no, not exactly. I pulled over soon after you fell asleep to take a short nap, but I couldn't really rest, I'm... a b... keep reading on reddit ➡
I work at an amusement park where only half of the actors are actual actors. This last night was simply awful for me.
The moonlight coming in through the window which had neither curtains nor blinds was just bright enough to add to my already persistent unease. I tried to cover it up with my blanket and pillow, but they simply wouldn't stay in place. Then I tried to sleep with my head resting on the other end of bed. That actually helped for a little while, but the knowledge of me being at the mercy of strangers and the shapeshifting monster standing outside staring voidly through the window kept me anxious and on high alert.
Every creak of a floorboard, ever gust of wind that hit the roof from outside made me jump. At first, I tried to occupy myself by rewatching some cartoon episodes I had downloaded on my smartphone. Somehow, things t... keep reading on reddit ➡
I work at an amusement park where only half of the actors are actual actors. I arranged a meeting with the Mime yesterday, under my friend and co-worker Anne's supervision.
When I entered the park this morning, I wasn't sure where this would get me except maybe to a hospital, but one thing was for certain: I was already scared shitless before I even entered the park.
I had to delay my routine with Mr Scratch seeing as I had told Anne I would meet her at nine. I arrived at the park at eight thirty, but I knew that the sock puppet would keep me occupied for well over an hour. Therefore I decided to visit Nathan again.
He was just driving by the entrance to Twin Vale Point when I reached the western town, but stopped the carriage as soon as I came into sight. How times change... He looked rather upbeat and happy to see me and when I approached him,... keep reading on reddit ➡
I'm a guy in my 30s who has no fear of looking like a total dork, because I am one. My work employs a lot of teens and I have to be around them a lot as their direct or indirect manager. Obviously at points when it's quiet we shoot the shit. They'll talk to me about Tiktok, of course I know what it is but around them I always call tikkytokky and talk about it like it's Facebook (eg "oh your new tikkytokky status got 500 likes? How many friends do you have on there?"). Sometimes they try to teach me how to do a tiktok dance, I'll play along at first but it always devolves into either the macarena or a Mr. Bean dance, they try to correct me while I insist I'm trying. There is real debate about whether I can actually do the woah or am intentionally doing it totally wrong. Sometimes I'll even throw in a "back in my day we rofl-ed to may-mays of lolcats instead of dancing half naked on the tikkytokky!" for extra dad cringe.
Also I laugh at my own steady stream of bad dad jokes, the best a... keep reading on reddit ➡
It's one big amusement park.
This is why it's struggling against real events.
The important essential functions and structures are bare bones and neglected while the cruise industry is being rescued. The cruise industry.
Some say it's about cruise industry jobs but maybe it's an issue so many jobs are tied to amusement industries. No, entire cities if not states are tied to them.
Las Vegas is a ghost town right now. It's based on exaggerated live shows, casinos, and restaurants. How long will it take Las Vegas to recover? What happens to the state of Nevada?
Miami resisted quarantine for a reason. It's economy is based on tourism. The whole city is an amusement park. Restaurants, clubs, beaches. Go up to Orlando where you have disneyland, sea world, universal studios.
New Orleans, Hawaii, Los Angeles. The list goes on where partying, drinking and eating keeps the engine running.
Not just for tourist but it's how many Americans live across the USA.

I (21F) went to Disney World last March (2019) with my boyfriend and his family. It was my first time ever at Disney World and I had a blast! It was super fun and I’m actually glad my first time at Disney World was when I was an adult because... I actually remember it. The only downside? Children. everywhere. and I know, duh it’s Disney so there will be children everywhere, but they made the experience in the parks really annoying sometimes. Waiting in line and hearing a child scream and cry was not very magical at all LOL. The amount of times I had a stroller hit the back of my heel from a Karen was too much for me to count and the amount of newborns I saw in the parks was outrageous. I made a comment while in the park saying something along the lines of “why even bother bringing your child to Disney World if they’re not going to remember it. Like wait till they’re at least 14 or something” and my Dads boyfriend disagreed with me and said how you HAVE to bring them here when they’re l... keep reading on reddit ➡
I work at an amusement park where only half of the actors are actual actors. After I acquired a certain revolver from Dale yesterday, I spent the remainder of the night staring at it. I played around with it a little, harmlessly imitating some rather cool Western scenes. I admit that didn't help me making any sense of it though.
Either way, when I finally went to bed, I took it with me and placed it on my nightstand. For some reason, I felt like I wanted to keep it close to me.
The revolver has a standard six slot cylinder. When I checked it, I found that there were five rounds in it. This was unsurprising seeing as back in the day, cowboys wouldn't load them fully. From what I know due to my extensive "research", and by that I mean hours and hours of watching Westerns, that is because these early revolvers did not have any safety mechanisms... keep reading on reddit ➡
I work at an amusement park where only half of the actors are actual actors. After yesterday's chaos, my time at work today was surprisingly peaceful. However the knowledge that I would be meeting my manager later on hung over me like a spectre.
On my way to the sock puppet's cage, I picked up my backpack which I had left next to the restroom's door yesterday. I by no means wanted to go in there alone, so I just hurriedly snatched it up from the ground and got on my way. After my routine with Mr Scratch, I went for the Stagecoach to see Nathan.
I have noticed that whenever I would come to visit him, he would drop his usual gloomy and grim demeanor and take on a more lively personality. I've grown very fond of him over these last few days. He's a huge motivation for me to keep doing what I'm doing, and even though he keeps denying that ther... keep reading on reddit ➡
I work at an amusement park where only half of the actors are actual actors. Ever since my interaction with the Mime yesterday, I haven't stopped wondering about what sets the not-actors apart from one another.
After a while, the numbers scratched into Dale's skin came back to me. 3/8. I have started to believe that three is the number of pretenders, of actual pretenders, that is. Those who react to iron. I'm not sure what exactly that means in regards to upper management since I can hardly imagine the Mime being part of it, but if my theory is correct, that means that there are two more of them.
I didn't know what I would achieve by figuring out which ones are which, but I was sure it would help somehow. The whole iron-thing would indicate that contrary to my former belief, not all of the not-actors used to be humans who got turne... keep reading on reddit ➡
Here is the list of Continued Business Closures in Ohio as of June 4th. Amusement Parks remain on this list after today's reopening of entertainment style venues.

I work at an amusement park where only half of the actors are actual actors. I think I've mentioned a couple times before that I am a huge fan of wild west movies. This is probably why I'm so fascinated by the Stagecoach.
My daydreams about this gorgeous carriage usually involve steering it, sitting inside of it and being driven around or even riding on top of its roof like the Laughing Cowboy. I really am a bit envious of him about that. Ever since I first saw the Stagecoach, I just wanted to ride it so badly, be it only once.
Well, it seems this dream of mine has finally become sweet, sweet reality today. And I paid the price for it alright.
My chest and stomach hurt like hell... but it was worth it.
Let me explain.

I work at an amusement park where only half of the actors are actual actors. After things were rather boring yesterday, I can hardly put what I experienced today into words. I am not quite sure anymore where all of this is going, but even though uncertainty has taken its toll on me these last couple hours, I'm determined to see this through to the end. No matter where it might lead me.
When I arrived at the park today, it felt like the premises had been awaiting me. There was a fresh breeze blowing and the air smelt strangely nice. It was almost welcoming.
There was nobody by the employee entrance and on my way down the streets to the cage of the sock puppet in the horror-themed section, I did not encounter a single soul. Once I reached the funhouse however, I spotted Darius standing beside Mr Scratch's shelter. He noticed me approaching a... keep reading on reddit ➡
Just announced via DeWine's press conference. Will update with official link when it is released.
Also includes Casinos and Water Parks. DeWine did say they had been working with them last week on finalizing and submitting plans to re-open, so this was most likely planned and not a reaction to the Kings Island suit, and would have been announced yesterday if the press conference hadn't been cancelled.
Edit: Official confirmation.
I work at an amusement park where only half of the actors are actual actors. Even though I fainted yesterday, both my colleague Darius, who was with me at the time, and I agreed to further investigate the restroom. If we are correct in our theory, it is the heart of the amusement park. If there is one place to look for the truth, it's in there.
Which is a weird thing to say seeing as it is a restroom I'm talking about.
Before I headed out to meet with my co-workers today, I packed some more laurel from my neighbor, who I believe I'm starting to really weird out at this point, another iron nail and a pair of silver earrings. I really have to be careful with my usage of the latter. I can't tell where I'll get more silver if I were to lose these. I most certainly don't have the financial means to just buy it.

I live in a small apartment located in a larger residence right by a very busy street. The lady who I live door to door with is a friendly older woman with an avid passion for gardening. She keeps a ton of potted plants on her balcony and all throughout her home. I've been over at her place a few times to chat and have lunch together, so I knew she would gladly help me out.
She sure was surprised to have me knock on her door in the early morning hours and ask if she had any laurel plants. Still, she scurried off into her living room and returned with a greenery sprouting twig which she handed to me with a friendly smile. I t... keep reading on reddit ➡
I work at an amusement park where only half of the actors are actual actors. Let me preface this by thanking those of you who have expressed their concern about me on my previous post and assuring you that I am feeling a lot better. I don't believe the Stagecoach has had any effect on me. My injuries have gotten better as well, even though I've discovered that I've twisted my ankle a bit and therefore have trouble walking, which is why I'll probably stay off work tomorrow as well.
What I'm about to tell you happened on Halloween. Fall is one of our busier seasons since Dale always has us go all out with spooky decorations once Halloween approaches. This of course makes work just all the more tiresome. However that's not the only thing making life for us actors harder than it already is around that time.

I should start off by explaining a couple things. Our park doesn't focus on one specific theme. We have four sections that are fenced off from one another. There's a spooky one, a western one, an old-timey hollywood one and one that looks like everything there is made of candy. We get a lot of visitors, mostly families and young couples. Every single one of us actors, the actual actors, is assigned to a specific one of the other things. The ones that aren't actors but pretend to be.
Now, you might be wondering why a park would keep around non-human creatures that pose a potential threat to its visitors and of course, you'd have to ask management for an exact answer. My best guess however is that they are in fact good employees: they don't need to be payed, look extremely real and offer a way more authentic experience. Of course, the experience cannot be too authentic, if you catch my drift. That's what we, the actual actors, are here for.
Every section has two actors and two o... keep reading on reddit ➡
I work at an amusement park where only half of the actors are actual actors. In my last post, I mentioned I was going to meet up with Joshua, Mr Scratch's former handler, and that's what I did. We had agreed to meet at twelve pm at his place.
Now, I'm not a shy person. I used to be, but that is a past long behind me. Even though I consider myself rather brave, I admit my fingers were shaking a little when I pressed them down on Joshua's doorbell. About ten seconds later, a lady in what looked to be her late thirties opened the door. She eyed me up and down before sighing deeply and pushing the door wide open, motioning for me to come in.
"You must be from that wretched park," she grunted. "Come on in. Joshua's waiting for you in the living room."
I offered her a polite smile as I stepped inside, which she promptly ignored. She pointed at a do... keep reading on reddit ➡
I work at an amusement park where only half of the actors are actual actors. I already mentioned that my co-workers and I were going to meet up today in my last post and that's what we did. And boy, was it a day.
When I arrived at the saloon in Twin Vale Point at four in the afternoon just like we had discussed, the other actors were already sat at the large round table in the middle of the room, talking excitedly.
"Fashionably late to her own party," Mitchell commented, raising the bottle of light beer he was holding to me.
I grinned. "More like Darius's party though, isn't it? Did you bring the key?" I asked, sinking onto the cushioned chair flanked by Anne and Maxine.

I work at an amusement park where only half of the actors are actual actors. After I introduced the two pretenders from the Hollywood section in my last post, I'll have to touch on one of my earlier mentions again this time.
I never really thought I would have to talk a lot about the Nurse. The only questions asked about her have been inquiries as to whether she is hot, because apparently, my description of her missing her lower jaw and being braindead have not been a sufficient answer to that.
However there have also been comments about how her non-threatening and rather pitiable appearance may be a front and that she might be more dangerous than she's letting on. I admit I never truly took that possibility into consideration, but if I ever had reason to believe it could be the case, today is the day that I got it.

I work at an amusement park where only half of the actors are actual actors. After I mainly talked about my suspicions regarding my manager in my previous post, I finally want to introduce the two other pretenders that roam the theme park. I also want to mention that I have some rather interesting news up ahead, but first things first.
The Hollywood section of the amusement park I work at is, and I'm going to be frank here, the one I care for the least. Its rollercoasters are rather standard and tame and there's nothing special to me about its design. It looks like something out of a movie, sure, but not the type of movie I'd watch. Everything in there is shiny and glammed up. I can't deny it all looks very pretty, but it just doesn't catch my eye as much as the horror or wild west section do.

Those who have read my first post will know that half of the actors at the amusement park I work at aren't really... actors. We call them pretenders, not-actors or monsters, plain and simple.
Also, just saying, I had some trouble thinking of a shorter and less misleading title this time. I get it, I had it coming, but the joke about the unpaid actors got old really fast.
It appears I have to preface this one by answering some frequently asked questions regarding Mr Scratch.
Yes, I do give him scritches and belly rubs and all that stuff from time to time. I often find myself treating him like my pet, even though I really shouldn't be doing that. Due to his size and strength, I have not yet attempted to play or wrestle with him, nor do I wish to try anytime soon.
About his anatomy, I guess I could have made myself more clear. Imagine a huge, d... keep reading on reddit ➡

Just started reminiscing on the time I snorted 5mg of 3-meo-pcp before going to Six Flags several months back.
Damn I should’ve written a trip report at the time because I’ve forgotten most of the details due to my recent benzo problems.
All I remember is that I literally had 0 fear the entire time.
It was 6 hours of pure adrenaline seeking.
My friends that were with me were too pussy to go on some of the rides and coasters so I was mostly doing my own thing.
I kept going on that sky-diving ride over-and-over.
By the end of the night I think I experienced “adrenaline burnout” or something. I think if your body is in that flight-or-fight mode for too long your body is just eventually like “nawh. No more endorphins for you nigga.”
Because I was going on the biggest and scariest coasters and rides, chasing that adrenaline high and got literally nothing. Like I would be on a wild roller coaster and just be like “meh. Boring.”
But the 6 hours before that were a fucking blast.

Especially right after finishing a ride, gives you a moment to rest and think about how much fun you just had, and get excited for the next ride.
I work at an amusement park where only half of the actors are actual actors. After my last post, I initially wanted to introduce the two pretenders from the Hollywood section today, but in light of very recent events, I changed my mind. It's very late as of me writing this.
Let me preface this by explaining a few things. While the park is closed for the season, that of course does not mean we are allowed to stay at home. There are two reasons for this. For one it would be utterly irresponsible to simply abandon the creatures in our care and also, we would not get paid a single cent. Paid leaves don't really exist in Dale's book. That means they do exist, but only on paper.
Therefore, even though the park is completely void of visitors, each of us have to come in at least for a couple hours a day to check up on the pretenders. By the way, t... keep reading on reddit ➡
I work at an amusement park where only half of the actors are actual actors. Since I touched on the one not-actor from the western section who left a lasting impression in my last post, I think I should introduce the other monster from Twin Vale Point. If you could even call it a monster.
However I need to get some things out of the way regarding the pretenders' origins before I get started. None of us actors know where they come from or what they are. All of them have been here long before any of us started working our current jobs. Then again, Nathan might know something. He is the other actor from Twin Vale Point, but I'll get to that in a second.

As a native Minneostan who hasn't lived home for years I always like to share MN facts with as many people as I can. Especially love being like "Oh yea that thing you like? It actually has a tie to MN" or pretending like I know everything about MN.
Most recently was getting to inform someone where the Peanuts writer is from.
Anyways today I wanted to start compiling a little list. Here's what I've got off the top of my head atm. Please share any random link to MN you can think of. Preferably being mildly socially relevant to someone outside of MN. Bonus points to something that I can reference here in europe.
I can understand if both are not available at the same time but the vote is so close. For any Ubisoft Devs on this Subreddit, I think many players would be happy to buy both since they would go together so well. Can any Dev tell us why they would not do both?
EDIT: I'm sure that amusement parks were charging 10x the regular price for ice cream and pizza back then as they do today. So, the items in bustling city life would definitely fit.
