Dana Wyatt

Director of Operations
Pacific Park

Mr. Wyatt has spent his adult life in the theme park business, starting off at the age of 18 as a ride operator at Magic Mountain in Valencia. During his 24 years with Magic Mountain, and then Six Flags, he accepted various assignments in Park Operations, Maintenance, and Security, and joined the management ranks at age 24. In his spare time he volunteered as a Reserved Police Officer for the Los Angeles Police Department, obtained his Teaching Credential and taught Vocational Training classes for the William S. Hart High School District. He left Six Flags as the Vice President of Operations at Six Flags over Georgia in 1998.

Taking the opportunity to return to his roots in Southern California, he accepted a recruiter's offer to join Pacific Park on the Santa Monica Pier as the Director of Operations. During his thirteen year tenure he has played a pivotal role in developing Pacific Park into the resounding success it is today.

Mr. Wyatt actively participated in the initial planning meetings that led to the formation of CAPA, and Pacific Park has been a member since the organization's founding.
