Kendra Kane - Amusement Advantage

There are times this particular shop has so many interactive and locational narratives that I question my sanity, but always there via email, text, and phone, is Kendra. I'm sure I infuriate her at times (I'm meticulous and a perfectionist; not always a good thing!), and yet she's always been... Continue Reading

First shop with Amusement Advantage

I am one of those people who get a bit (or a lot, according to my partner) nervous about the unexpected. I am going to complete my first shop with Amusement Advantage this week at an aquarium. I have read as much information as I could find about this company... Continue Reading

Amusement Advantage Scoring Confusion

I just completed my second shop for Amusement Advantage. My first one I totally bombed. I got home and realized that I forgot a few MAJOR steps and didn't even begin to fill out the report until I talked with the scheduler. Neither of us were certain that it would... Continue Reading


HORRIBLE HORRIBLE Company. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME. THEY REFUSE TO PAY YOU. Once you sign up for a shop, they non- stop call, text, and e-mail you. You can't have another job or other obligations because you need to be able to answer asap or they will remove you from... Continue Reading

Are the Amusement Park Jobs with "One Ticket" the "Most Sought After MS Jobs"? Yes or No?

Do you perform the Amusement Park Shops on your own or take someone with you? If you worked for PGE or any other company with a Union the tickets are very reasonable. Some of the Theme Parks are raising prices to keep attendance down to levels where your... Continue Reading

Amusement Advantage

In all my years as a shopper, not once have I ever seen an assignment on AA's website. Not even if I search every state. Granted I've never been on their website right at the release date they have listed. Do they really go that fast, or what? :)... Continue Reading

Hey guy, My partner and I wanted to get a little kinky recently after being initiated by the nototious book 50 shades of grey. One thing lead to another and we wanted to try something out. After a fair of research of divers websites, we spotted this one restraint which we fancied a... Continue Reading

Amusement Park Shops

I did my first one this past weekend...well...I can't say I would do it again under the same conditions. Compensation was 5 tickets, you use one for the shop then you are responsible for paying for all the other stuff. We had been eager to go to the amusement park... Continue Reading

Amusement Advantage

Does anyone else have trouble getting AA to assign you shops? I apply every month and have never been assigned a single shop. I know that these kinds of shops (e.g. aquariums) typically are very involved and lengthy, and maybe they don't want to assign them to someone who... Continue Reading

Amusement Advantage Job Postings

Ok their website says they release shops on the Friday closest to the 20th. I don't do this on a monthly basis, but when I am looking for shops from them I often check back around that time. I haven't seen assignments from them since 2010, yet they often post... Continue Reading
