Mount Fun Day

Mount Fun Day!

Mount Fun got its name because at its peak is the world's highest altitude Chuck E Cheese. Many of the world's wealthiest and most adventurous children have contracted the Chuck E Cheese at the top of Mount Fun for their birthday parties, but only a rare few have ever made it to the top to blow out the candles. Mount Fun's slopes and crags are littered with the bones of outdoorsy children and their Sherpas.

The staff of the Mount Fun Chuck E Cheese live on premises, and they are all certified in either medicine or nursing. You're the newest hire, filling the vacancy of Bunny Rabbit/Orthopaedic Surgeon. You are required to show up to work only when the bell is rung in the Chuck E Cheese watchtower, alerting all in the camp that a birthday celebration nears, and the warm blankets and various roots should be readied for however many of the children have survived. This is also the signal for the generator to be charged in the medical barracks.

On average, the staff of the Mount Fun Chuck E Cheese works a total of six weeks out of the year, rarely hosting more than one or two parties. Which is pretty sweet. But each birthday party is preceded by a three to four week convalescence. The most challenging part of the job is that all staff-members must wear their animal costumes at all times, even during the amputations.

Tonight, the bell will ring for the first time this year. The first time in your tenure. You're going to have to prove to them that they made the right decision in hiring you. Get ready to sing some funny covers of fifties rock songs and teach some children how to maneuver their prosthetics.

Happy Mount Fun Day!
