They assist staff members and ensure that all visitors have a positive and memorable experience.

Specific tasks and assignments will vary based on the event/day. Some examples of responsibilities include:

  • Assist staff with capacity management tasks such as checking in members, maintaining visitor counts, and tracking data. Assist with monitoring galleries for capacity management.
  • Greet and welcome visitors in the lobby using props and toys.
  • Engage visitors in fun, playful experiences. Facilitate play and other activities as assigned.
  • Provide exceptional customer service when interacting with guests.
