  A natural salesperson, Sydney "Syd" Duvall loves the limelight and has been a natural salesperson from the earliest days. One rainy evening in October of 1999, Syd stumbled across a traveling carnival and sideshow setting up a giant tent on the site of a small amusement park north of Columbus. Quickly connecting with the owners, Syd found an opportunity to make a new life traveling the country selling carnival classics such as cotton candy and kettle corn outside of the tent.   On September 17, 2021, a freak accident occurred as the show returned to Columbus for the first time in 15 years. A late night helium leak inside the tent left Syd and the other members of the show just a little bit twisted. Today, Sinister Syd still stands atop a barker box telling jokes and attempting to draw in a crowd to taste flavors that just shouldn’t be; from cotton candy that tastes like popcorn to popcorn that tastes like cotton candy.

  A day in the life of a cabana server begins well before park opening, washing down lounge chairs and putting the finishing touches on our cabanas to prepare for the arrival of our guests. Once the gates open and our cabana guests check in, our cabana servers act as their VIP hosts for the day, providing food and beverage service as well as acting as park ambassadors, interacting with guests of all ages and answering questions about the park and its attractions. Some of our cabana servers also act as food runners, working in a centralized location to assemble orders and delivering them to our cabana guests in a timely manner. Working as a cabana server is all about team work as a single cabana may host up to 15 guests and filling a large order may require a parade of servers to deliver hot food and cold beverages to our hungry guests. In a typical 10.5 hour shift, our cabana servers may walk as many as 7-10 miles, making this position ideal for those who enjoy working outdoors and are looking for a great way to stay active this summer!   Applicants without a resume will be able to skip resume upload option.
