A big part of what makes the Funland experience so unique is all the friendly, wonderful people from around the world who work here each summer!
Here's a sample of some of the smiling faces that put the Fun in Funland.
"I love working at Funland. It's like a whole new experience. Over the past two years I have made some amazing new friends. Some from America and some from other places like Russia, Turkey, Jamaica and Colombia. All of the people at Funland are so nice and we always have fun together. Not only is it fun but the money is good. Funland is a great place to work and I have had some wonderful times working here. It has been an experience that I will always remember. I love Funland."
"This was my second summer at Funland. I enjoyed every moment spent here. When my friends and I decided to come back to the USA, there was no doubt that we would be coming back to Funland. Every day I discovered something new, families have fun, little babies smiling when they get a prize, etc. We met lots of new friends with whom we are still in touch with. The atmosphere in the park is amazing, because you feel like you are at home which is very important when you are a foreigner. Thanks a lot!"
"I really love Funland for the people who are here. Also, it was very pleasant to work with children. I received a lot of positive emotions during this summer. Working in Funland is like working in a family, you know that if you need help you receive it. It was a good summer full of fun."
"The summer of 2010 was really great. I was working in Funland all summer and I have to say thanks to all that I here. You made this summer unforgettable. I was impressed by everything the family was doing for me and for all the employees. I really felt myself as part of the family. Thank you guys for this..."
"I am one of the lucky ones who was enjoyed coming to Funland since I was a baby. Eight years ago I began working for the Fasnacht family and to be a part of other children's enthusiasm and excitement makes working here more than just a summer job. Funland has given me the opportunity to make friends with people from all over the world. The Fasnacht's have become my family and these ties will remain long after my time at Funland comes to an end."
"Working at Funland has been so much fun. Definitely one of the best summers of my life. One of the best parts would be meeting all the people. Everyone is so nice and I've made so many new friends from all over the world. It's great!"
"Before coming here, we thought working in Funland would be ordinary. But you surprised us with your hospitality, kindness and your friendship. Even if it was just for the summer, being part of Funland family was very good. Thanks for everything. Hope to see you next summer!"
"2008 is my 2nd year at Funland. I decided to come back after a really great experience in previous season. I met a lot of nice people from other countries and they are today my good friends. The great thing is that the Funland family treats us like friends and that makes our job much easier. It is also good that we worked on both games and rides which is not the case in other amusement parks where employees work just one place. Working with kids is really interesting and we can feel like them after work by riding the rides for free! I can say that Funland is Fun!"
"It’s not that easy to encapsulate the whole Funland experience. Mostly, because it is rather a style of life we have lived these months rather than work. You can’t explain why we would work 6 days a week, get tired, and still go back on our day off to enjoy it and have fun! Thanks to the Funland family members who worked at Funland this summer!"
"What can I say about summer in Funland? It was something beautiful-pizza every week, the dance party and barbeque. Here I am meeting new friends from different countries. Funland - it is not work - it is a lifestyle! Thank you!"
"Funland! The summer of 2008 is the best summer in my life. Funland is the place where you can work, relax and communicate with different people. I had a great experience here. There are many nice people in Funland. We had a pizza-party every week. We had a lot of fun at the raffle (where everyone got a prize), the Funland picnic, and at the beach party. Undoubtedly, I improved my English. It was the main purpose of my trip. I’ll miss Funland. Thanks for each day!"
"Hello! My name is Mykhailo; I am from Ukraine. This is my first time in the United States and I very much liked this country. This summer was amazing and the best in my life because I worked in a beautiful place close by the ocean-Funland! I am already 4 months here and Funland became not only a place of work, but my life. I got the best experiences of the world, intercommunicating with people. I am glad that I met so many good people like the family members in Funland. They taught me so much and from my heart I want to say Thank you!"
"Thanks, Chris Darr, for engaging me in this job. You weren’t my boss but my good friend. Now when I must leave Funland, I feel so sad. I will never forget you Funland! I hope you don't either!"
"I’ve had a great summer at Funland, the family are so helpful and welcoming that I felt like one of the “Funland family,” from day one. I have made some great friends who I am already planning new adventures with and will be very sad to say goodbye too. At Funland every day is different which made it a fun place to work. I can’t believe the summer is over, it went way too quickly!"
"Funland was my first job in USA and I really liked it. Because here I had a good experience in what I need for the future and met a lot of new friends. I had a great time and I think that Funland is an excellent opportunity for students from the whole world to get what I got."
