A Day in the Life of an Operations Manager

A Day in the Life of an Operations Manager

I was challenged with writing a post about what I do as a Duty Manager in the park. At first I thought this would be a pretty easy blog to write since I’ve held this position for 14 years, but then I started thinking about my daily responsibilities. I like to think that I have a plan when I come to work. I have tasks and assignments that I’m responsible for and that I work on, but on operating days, my plans don’t always come to fruition.

Our goal is to ensure our guests have a phenomenal experience at Busch Gardens.

The puppies are just about 10 weeks old, so everything is new and exciting to them. The puppies are meeting their trainers as well as learning basic behaviors like how to sit, their names and potty training. But as with a lot of puppies, Conner and Finn love to play and then take really long naps.

Time For A Makeover

This year, we will be doing a full makeover of the front yard at my house. There are plants that are 12 feet tall, and that were there when we moved in, that need to come out. So I’ve been working through plant books and catalogues and trying to work out what should go where.

Land of the Dragons® Celebrates Its 20th Anniversary in 2014

Land of the Dragons® Celebrates Its 20th Anniversary in 2014

In April, 1994, the area formerly known as Grimm’s Hollow had been transformed into a bright, interactive, lively children’s play area. Land of the Dragons came alive with a three-story treehouse that had a dragon throughout it, breathing smoke and roaring with every child’s push of a button. There were even net climbs and slides and towers to play in. Several of the rides in the area were refurbished and re-themed, while new ones were added. Th
