With Labor Day weekend marking the spiritual end of the first big mandate-less summer since COVID began. With tourism back and close to full strength, hospitality workers were busy all summer around Upstate at hotels, attractions, and restaurants to meet the resurgence of demand.
If keeping your customer service face on while dealing with an awful customer makes you want to scream, let it out on a roller coaster! One county has organized a first-ever event with Six Flags Great Escape to celebrate their workers with a free night at the park. The organizers even found a way to help Big Brothers Big Sisters while they do it.
Tourism Night Comes to Six Flags
The Warren County Employment and Training Administration invites all Warren County tourism, hospitality, and retail workers for a night of free fun at Six Flags on Monday, September 12 from 5 until 8p.
“We are thrilled to support Warren County and take part in celebrating our most important asset, our people. The seasonal workforce is the engine of our operation and key to delivering the world class experience that guests deserve in our beautiful region.” – Rebecca Wood, Six Flags Great Escape Resort President
WCETA is also letting employers nominate their workers for various awards that will be given out during the evening. The categories are:
- Excellence in Customer Service
- Emerging Leader
- Patience of a Saint
- Most Team Spirit
- Sales Extraordinary
- Lake George Royalty
How Do You Get A Ticket?
Anybody wanting a free ticket must reserve one in advance by the Friday before the event, September 9th. Reservations can be made at this link. Hospitality workers can also reserve one additional ticket for a guest for $5 more. All the proceeds from buddy tickets will go directly to Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Southern Adirondacks.
“Thank you to Six Flags Great Escape and Warren County’s workforce for including Big Brothers Big Sisters and making a donation to our community’s children of today, who will become our workforce of tomorrow.” – Bill Moon, Chief Executive Officer of Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Southern Adirondacks
