Name: Michael P.

Title: Assistant Director of Food & Beverage

So, what does your title mean you do at Soaky?
I oversee all food and beverage locations within Soaky Mountain Waterpark. I work with the Soaky #ONETEAM to ensure our employees and guests have the best possible experience.

What is the best part of your job?
I get to be a part of a culture that builds teamwork and has a close group of leaders and employees
making it a fun place to work at and visit.

Favorite attraction at Soaky?
It is hard to choose a single attraction! Between the massive wave pool, Black Bear Rapids, and our
newest slide The Edge. They all have something special to offer. I know my kids really enjoy Black Bear
Rapids and spend their time floating along on tubes waiting for the waves to start. However, racing
down The Edge is a thrill ride and a must!

Favorite food at Soaky?
Another tough choice! Our Tacolicious truck serving up tacos and nachos is sooooo good but our newest
food truck Philly-Up brought us a delicious Philly cheesesteak sandwich! Thinly sliced steak, hot cheese,
caramelized onions, and peppers served on a hoagie bun… is where it’s at!

Piece of advice for first-time guests?
Reserve a cabana. Not only do you have plenty of shade to relax but you get to enjoy the service of our
cabana team serving up drinks, food, & fun! Our brand-new Edge cabanas are two-stories and can seat up to 20 people! They have many different options and sizes to choose from that will suit most families’ needs.

Now for some fun stuff:
Favorite toy when you were a kid?
G.I. Joe action figures

All-time favorite movie?
Top Gun

All-time favorite TV series?
Hard one but I would say Big Bang Theory or Stargate SG-1

Favorite ice cream flavor?
Moose Tracks

What toppings do you like on your pizza?
Meat lovers! Pepperoni, sausage, bacon, extra cheese
