Wasn't aware they were offered, unless through a coaster club or something of that nature.

I've never heard of such a thing either. I know Great Adventure works with some of the colleges with animal science majors for externships at the safari but I don't think they even do that in the winter.

Call or e-mail the parks and ask. SFGadv has been awesome with answering any e-mail I've sent them this past year.

Recently I got an email from Kings Island offering an off-season tour of the park. The selling point was to "see behind the scenes". Having worked there for the past decade, including a year in maintenance, believe me I've seen all the "behind the scenes" that I could ever want to see. So I deleted the email and now can't find it in my trash. But just to let you know that, like Santa and the M&M guys, these things do exist.

EDIT: I found it!

The Easter Bunny too?! YAY! LOL!

It's a great idea to make some cash in the off season but you'd have to have knowledgeable people running them for it to be worth while and I'm not sure how many of them are available this time of year. I suppose someone could do it for some extra cash on the weekends though. I'll shoot SFGadv an e-mail (they've probably blocked me by now!) and see what they say. Now you've got me intrigued....

Jen - I found the email and updated my post. It doesn't sound to me like it would be a money maker, but probably a good PR move.

I'd like to do it sometime just to see what it's like and if it's worth it although it would probably be torturous to be around roller coasters when you can't ride them and are going through winter withdrawal.

You can spend your winter vacations in resorts specially at those places where there is more snow fall, so these types of places are more entertaining and adventurous for you and family.
