Robyn Foreman

Seasons worked: 1996 -

Funny story or happening:

My first job in the park was in Entertainment as a Zombie. As most of you know, we are required to exhibit no emotions, no smiles and definitely no speech ability. Sometimes this is alot harder than it sounds cause' the guests are always trying to make you react. That first year we had a pretty lively group of dead people but I remember in particular a cast member named Courtney. He was dressed as the dead farmer and part of his deal was to climb up on top of our multilevel stage and jump down to the next two levels to scaring the guests into screams.

One particular evening we were all out doing our "I'm dead" routine when we observed him climbing the stage. As is custom we stopped and looked so the guests would do the same. He reached top and welding his axe, let loose a mighty roar as he jumped to the next level. Unfortunately, the stage had had enough and gave way. There we are putting up mighty fight with complete hysteria, running up to help him because he is stuck at mid chest. This unfortunate incident ended with the whole cast having to go underneath and pull while some poor entertainment guy stood on top and pushed. I don't think we came out for at least and hour because there was no way to keep a straight face on the job after that.

Martin Dahl



Seasons worked: 1979-1981

Funny story or happening:

After surviving the heat of 1998, I'm reminded how much we avoided the record temperatures in 1980 by spending nearly the entire day in the Palace. We worked 10 shows a day, probably 12 hours a day.:

During one lunch break, Ted Gurley and I went to East Fort Worth to deposit our paychecks. We stopped at the liqour store on the way back and picked up a big bottle of Mr. Boston's pre-mixed martinis. We nearly finished the bottle on the drive back, stumbled back through the park, and ran the next 3 shows with quite a buzz. Ted ran sound, while I ran one of the Super Trooper follow spots. As I recall, they were fairly flawless.:

One thing that makes this funny is that it was sort of out of character. While I drank socially, I was not into alcohol abuse. I'm not encouraging it by this story, either.:

Also, see Misty Shatto in this section.

Seasons worked: 1966 - 1977

Funny story or happening:

I was working a double at Happy Motoring #1. John Bement was foreman. John sent me to the bend and told me that when his assistant foreman came back from lunch to meet him at El Chico's. Well, just when the assistant came back, one of the Happy Motoring cars caught on fire at the bend. I got the kids out of the car and walked them up and got the fire extinguisher and gave it to the assistant foreman to go and put out the fire. I told him I was going to lunch. Well, when I got to El Chico's, I told John what happen. He looked out the door and saw this cloud of smoke. He ran out of El Chico's and while running back to the ride, he fell down and hurt himself. By the time he got back the fire was out and everything was fine. I also ate his lunch that he had just paid for.

Seasons worked: 1986 -

Funny story or happening:

The best story I can think of right now is...

Back in 86', SFOT still hosted Senior Night's. One Friday night during Senior Night I was working fire watch 2 in the Cave (Back when it was GOOD). The park was virtually empty do to the fact that it had been raining all night.

The phone at Fire watch two rang and woke me up from a much needed sleep and I was asked to watch out for tub no. 22 (Don't recall if this is the actual number, but will us this number for sake of this story).

There was a couple, Male & Female asking to keep riding the ride and not get out of the tub upon reaching Dock. Well, with the park dead and no line, the loader said sure.

The question was, "Why in the world would someone want to keep floating around in a circle in the cave."

Well, I saw why. this couple had made the cave ride there, "Own personal Honeymoon Suite", at Six Flags over Texas, the FAMILY park, or should I say place to start your family.

Needless to say upon seeing me step out of the darkness and a yelling "Hey" they decided not to ride through again.

The funniest park of this whole thing, was they never stopped there act of "Family Making" when I stepped out and yelled. I don't think he ever missed a stride.

Benton Jennings

Seasons worked: 1975 - 1976

Funny story or happening:

The funniest thing is - we still do it! ( we went "pro" and moved on from Flags..) For 23 years. Hard to believe. Come and visit us at our website - too strange to be true - it's better than "Cats" - I saw it again and again! THE GUNFIGHTERS

Funny stories? -- Ye gad, everyday and every show and the things we did after we'd finished for the day back behind whatever scenes we could get into -- some of which tales are still classified. There are those on the River who know, and those in the Cave, those on the Fiesta train, those in shops and stands, those...

Ah, but our fondest memory was a scene repeated too many times as far as we were concerned:

"Hi! I'm Twathey, and I've theen the Thouthern Palath thow four hundred and thixthty thixth timeth!"

"Hey, that's great Tracey ---- how many times have you seen OUR show?" "Ummm....none..."

"Get out of here Tracey..."

Yessir, we did it when it MEANT something to be a Gunfighter at Six Flags....just what that was we never knew...but it meant something by god! Eleven shows a day! June '76 we had to be there 7 days a week for the whole month - no days off! No fancy air conditioned dressing room - we had to stay outside all day! We had to have fingers stuck in our backs who knows how many qonzillion times and hear that "funny" phrase: "Hey! I gotcha! Yuk Yuk!" We made people laugh and applaud and take our picture with their grandma and all for a whopping $2.10 an hour! We were the envy of red tags and the scorn of the blues. We were the only employees who could wear long hair and beards. We were of legal age. We were out of our cotton-pickin' minds! But we were THE GUNFIGHTERS.

Ok, I have to go now as they are locking the doors and turning out the lights. Maybe they'll give me a banana if I'm good.

Funny story or happening:

While working at the Southern Palace in the Fall, I watched the male members of the troup do the entire show in drag because the park was empty and no patrons were filing in...Hysterical.

Karl Lewis

Seasons worked: 1977 - 1977

Funny story or happening:

Our building was shaped like a ship. We were situated in the moat around Skull Island and our audience sat just under the (then slideless) skull. Most of our puppets were rod puppets, worked from underneath and held out the roof. We did ten to twelve shows a day during the summer, so we got to know our routines so well we could do them without thinking. One time during the summer, we all decided to switch parts. Disaster! Someone didn't pay attention, let go of their puppet's rod, and the puppet fell overboard and was floating on it's back down the moat! Then our one pair of marionettes got tangled in the American flags we would send up the masts for our finale... up went the flags, with a pair of black-light skeleton puppets!

We had to cancel the next show in order to untangle them. Was Argyle upset! Then there was the time it was so hot, all power in the park blew -- except for the transformer that ran our puppet show and the Spindletop next door to us. We were the only working attractions for about 2 hours!

Seasons worked: 1985

Funny story or happening:

Working in SPalace meant never a dull moment. The show that season was called "Celebrate, America!" and went through major holidays. For Halloween, we did a number to "Ghost- busters" and the gals wore short white coats and nurses' hats for costume. The dance sequence was pretty up-tempo, and included some fast turns, and I was forever losing my nurse's' cap into the audience! Also, I'll never forget the time that after a sequence of behind-the-stage pranks, Steve Dahlem hung my undies off the back of the Christmas tree prop as it came down onto the stage!

I'm now a psychiatrist, living in Boston. (sounds pretty boring, compared to the days in the Palace)! Sad to hear that so many beloved cast members have been victims of the AIDS epidemic. Because showbiz folks are on the move so much, I didn't hear the sad news often for months or even years later. Does anyone know of any movement within ShowPro to donate $ to any AIDS/HIV organizations?

I actually started as a season passer groupie, became an actual employee in the rides department, worked one year in guest relations, and my final year backstage at the Southern Palace. Memories from GR include a "May is over" dinner given to us by Bruce Neal (and all the people who came to see my first hangover the next day; the GR girls outing to the Sunset Club; and as I had totally memorized Barbara Kraus's calorie counter book - people were always calling me up at GR to ask how many calories were in....My very fondest memories of Six Flags are: the Canoe crews of '75 and '76; Happy Motoring and the candy stash; Chaps with Bonnie Bledsoe; swing shift on the Mine Train; and hanging out at the pool with Greg Adams.

I was foreman of Cave in 1991. One day we had a tub jam that I could not get unstuck out of the water. So I had to jump in which was not that uncommon. However, the water had just had blue dye added to it and my legs, shorts and underwear were blue. It was funny but the comments that I got still stay with me today. It was funny.

update: Another story... My first ride to work was Chaps. I had a great time but we had to run on rocks to hop the cars. Well one day the rocks gave way and sent me sliding onto the t rack with a car moving right towards my legs. Well needless to say, I was not a ble to get out of the way so I was run over by one of those cars. Everybody aro udn could not believe it and just stared at me. It hurt real bad but I got up a nd just went back to work. But to this day I cannot see a little car without ha ving pain in my legs. (just kidding)

Funny story or happening:

When I first registered here I left this field blank, but I could not stay silent forever, so I am re-registering. I worked at River during its final season, and as the final day drew near, strange things began to happen. My favorite was the time that, as I rounded the bend for the Indian Village, I (and all the passengers) suddenly became aware that someone had disrobed all the Indians; they had even placed a broomstick in a 'prominent' position between the legs of the young male indian (a.k.a. the 'Mazzola boy'). I froze for a moment, made some comment about the 'shameless natives', then continued my spiel. When I returned to dock I rushed to the phone to call the ride in Code-2 due to 'nude Indians', but it took forever for the office to take me seriously since I was laughing so hard. Eventually, the operations manager came down and loaded for me so that I could go to the back-area and re-robe the Indians.

Funny story or happening:

Update: After a long and semi-distinguised career which included multiple promotions, one demotion and a layoff, I have finally severd my ties with SFOT. As painful a decision as it was at the time, it was the best move I have ever made. I am now very happily employed by the City of Arlington as a 911 Emergency Services Dispatcher. To all my friends, it was a heck of a ride, but it is time to get off the roller coaster and walk down the exit ramp of life. Update: As much fun as I have had in my career at Six Flags, sometimes things happen that you will remember forever - and not because they were fun. I will never forget March 21st. A few minutes after 5:00 pm, I received a call that there were guests in the water at Rapids. I sprinted from the Safety office to the Rapids, where I learned that a boat had turned over and guests needed help. Myself and eleven others employees were very involved in the rescue - regardless of what Wendy Crown, self appointed Rapids Ride and Theme Park expert has to say. To: Barry Anderson, Donnie Sawyer, Chris Ulrich, Sean Lynch, Scott Cunningham, Elliot Porter, Tom Haggard, Jimmh Hudgins, Joe McDaniel, David Looney, and Kevin Crump: guys, you are without a doubt the finest group of people I have ever worked a crisis with. If, God forbid, we ever have anything similar happen, I would not change a person who was there. As far as myself and the safety department is concerned, everyone did just what they should have. I am proud to call you guys my co-workers and my friends. I am proud to have such a great group of guys that I can count on in a crisis. It could have been a lot worse if not for our efforts. Thank you!



Looking back, I see that I have to change my entry to this otherwise wonderful page. Mainly because one who until this moment I considered one of my best friends. I am not the worst fireman in the world. Eric Bunch only thinks that because he was my trainer and it wasn't until he quit that I was able to full realize my potential. If it wasn't for him, I may have been the fastest ever to become a full engineer. (Just kidding, Eric.)

I consider my best friends in the world to be the ones I have met at Six Flags. Including Ray Kendall, Chris Ulrich, Eric Bunch, Brandon McDaniel, Chris Barron, Rob Karper, Darin Niederhaus, just to name a few. Many girlfriends against whom only a few I hold a grudge.

I remember well the Giant Freeze-frame Newspaper incident. I believe I still have the picture somewhere. I remember fire hose wars at Splash with Zeke Taylor and Paul Allegria. Riding in the suicide truck (with power steering by "Armstrong") during Snow-blowing for HIP. Somebody dropping a box of ice on Copeland Road. Brad Hart taking out the fence at gate 4 with the Lift-master. pulling up countless trashcans full of sludge out of Flume 1 because whoever the genius who designed it forgot to put a drain in it. Many debates with Brad Juergens about how a certain situation should be handled. Always being the last person to leave the day before the park opened. Scaring the crap out of people at the haunted house, back when it was in the Texas Arcade, and still good. How much easier it was to pick up girls in the Engineer's overalls than at any other time of my life. Can anyone tell me why that is? Learning that roaches will pop if you step on them right. Seeing the biggest snake I've ever seen in the Texas Giant Queue line pond. Shooting it with a pellet gun, thinking it would do any good.

Chris Barron hitting a possum with the train and cutting it clean in half. More than one incident of somebody getting down in the Roundhouse (never me, though - unfortunately.) Consecutive Softball Championships for operations (94, 95). Trips to Rian Nance's house in East Texas (Kansas City, here I come!) I've met many friends and have seen many come and go. I can say that this is the most interesting place I have ever spent time in my life.

Funny story or happening:

Ahh, the memories. Well I guess my best stories would be from the Southern Palace. Alot of them involved late nights setting up for the next seasons shows. But most of those are probably too wierd. Others happened during the run of a show. One that stands out was the "Stars and Stripes Salute" show. It was the big ending of the show. The entire cast was on this large set piece, marching slowly and singing "God Bless America". I had just reached top speed on the control, when I saw an entire rail of lights about to hit the back wall. Well, I did all I could do. I hit the E-Stop, bringing the wagon to a screeching halt. Of course the entire cast went flying onto the stage. Luckily they found it as funny as the tech crew did.
