2. If this is the bus you take to get home, you end up fucked over.

Especially when it's full and drives right past the staff entrance.

3. Pretty much every staff party seems to be held at Liquid, or as it's now known, Attik.

6. You get used to hearing the same songs over and over and over.

And you hum them constantly in your head even after the work day is over.

7. You're always being asked by your relatives if you can get them in for free.

Nope, they can pay or use some of your Merlin pass visits.

8. And everyone will end up wanting to use your Merlin pass.

9. If you work on rides, you spend a lot of time explaining safety rules to disgruntled guests.

11. You end up getting really into swapping these badges to get the best ones.

12. You pick up random, fairly useless, facts about Lego.

13. Peak season in summer is super stressful.

There can be as many as 17,000 people in the park during that time.

14. So you love when it rains, because it means the park might be a bit quieter.

15. Although if it's too quiet, you get bored pretty quickly.

Standing around with nothing to do and your phone stored away in your locker means the time goes slowly.

16. Working after summer, when a lot of the employees are back to college or uni, is the actual worst.

17. And working on a fireworks night can involve long hours, but the displays and free soup are nice enough to make it kind of worth it.
