What would you say is the best part about being a park manager at Acrobranch?
The best part about my job is that I get to grow my staff and see that they reach their full potential. I identify their strengths to push them and their weaknesses to build and encourage them.
What has been the best part about hosting birthday parties and what tips can you offer for those visitors wanting to spend the day there?
Birthday parties are stressful to the moms who do months of planning and organizing to try and get everything settled for the day. What I like most about hosting the parties, is that we get take that stress off the parents for the two hours while the children are making their way through the courses.
What has been the most memorable event that you have hosted?
The most memorable event for me has got to be a bachelor’s party that we hosted about a year ago. Granted, we told the men that they had to be sober before climbing. The amount of jokes that went around just made my day, I ended up laughing so much that my eyes started watering and my stomach muscles were sore.
