Dream Job: Get Paid to Ride Roller Coasters

Theme Park News

Occupation: Roller Coaster Rider?
Orlando’s 67 Days of Smiles competition sounds like my dream job. For 67 days one lucky duo will get paid $25,000 to ride the rides of Orlando and experience the area’s other attractions. The winners will document their adventures via Facebook, Twitter, and blogs. To apply, just make a one-minute video and fill out the application on OrlandoInfo.com.

Orlando's 67 Days of Smiles

 The only ‘catch’ would be that you would have to take two months off from work. Of course if you don’t have a job, or you have a very understanding boss then apply away. You’ll also need an equally fearless partner which could be another obstacle.

  1. Yes, I would love to get paid to ride roller coasters. I have always loved to ride roller coasters since i was a kid, but now i like the really big roller coasters!! I will ride any roller coaster that you guys want me to ride. This would change my life. I work in a factory everyday of the week we make plastic parts and the temp. gets up to like 150 degrees its hot. I work in there 7 days a week and id like to have a change of pace please let me to this job!!

  2. I think being a roller coaster critic would be an awesome job. You know considering I live for theme parks and all, I visit a park at least once eight times a year! I mean I love coasters and have been to almost every major theme park searching for the best coaster and park. I have to say my take on a good coaster would be one worth reviewing! I would be honored to take this job and that’s why you should pick me!

    Thanks,

  3. I think being a rooler coaster critic would be a great job. I love to meet new people and see the country. I also love to visit theme parks. I visit Six Flags around 15 to 20 times a year. Most people agree with my general opinion about whether or not doing something is fun. I would be honored and pleased if picked for this job.

    Thanks,

  11. I am an instructor at a local college in my home town of Albuquerque, and I always tell my students, when I grow up I want to travel the world and be a roller coaster tester. I think my students don’t beleive me, but that is my dream. I’ve been taking rides on coaters since I was a kid. Once I got bit by the roller coaster bug, there was no turning back. I decided then that is what I want to do.
