Wanna Be a Theme Park Designer? Like NOW?

At TPU we’re dedicated to giving our readers a realistic vision of what it takes to have a career in attraction design. None of this pie-in-the-sky, ‘think happy thoughts’ and Someday Your Prince Will Come nonsense here, kids! It takes years of study and lots of connections to get into THIS private club, buddy. Unless…




To quote from the email we’ve just received:

On USA Network TV’s The Moment, show host Kurt Warner gives people thrown off-course by life events (illness, injury, death in the family, financial burdens, etc.) a second chance at pursuing their dream careers. We are looking for people who were on the right path to achieving their dream but had set backs that never let them finish accomplishing those goals. 

For this season we are looking for people who once had the dream of becoming a Theme Park Designer. If chosen for the show we would pair them with a highly acclaimed mentor that would train them for 10 days. At the end of the 10 days the person chosen for the show will have an interview to be hired for an amazing company. If they perform well then they will legitimately be offered their dream job in a well-established company!

Sometimes life gets in the way of achieving your dream but The Moment wants to offer the opportunity of a lifetime for ordinary Americans who never got to fulfill their dream to finally seize their ideal job and rewrite their life story!
