Very cool. You have a long and storied history of making young children cry. My daughter being one of them. Gosh she was so freaked out. That was. . . . . . . . . 2005, maybe? I had never been before. Haven't been back since.

Congrats. Enjoy the job.

That seems like the best job an outdoorsman could have! I grow a pretty gnarly beard every winter. I bet I would be perfect for that part in like 20 years or so. ;)

Awesome, congrats! Clark’s was an annual visit when we had the family vacation home at Village of Loon, it is a fun place.

What was the job interview like?

Also, I remember going to 'Clarks' as a child (I'm 49 now) even have pictures, but I don't remember anything about a 'Wolfman'. So now I'm scratching my head, as a life long 'New Englander' feeling that I've been cheated out of part of my childhood. :(

My kids have fond memories of going there every year since they were little with my parents. My mom took us there as kids and wanted to take my kids there every summer as part of a day trip so she did. I would hear about Wolfman yelling at them every year when they got home. Two of them are in college now so it's been a while but it's a great place and I am glad someone is carrying on the Wolfman tradition!

I've been working as a rides attendant for the past 3 years. They needed a new wolfman last minute and since I have facial hair they asked me,( most of the other employees are teenagers). I also have an acting background with community theater.

Hey, looks like we may see you tomorrow! Despite seeing them in the back yard, kids want to see bears....and I guess get a longer look at them!!

On the 16 yard line, shootin' for the Lewis!
Congrats, Clark’s Trading Post is the oldest roadside attraction in the USA. You’re now a part of history! My family first visited Clark’s in 1955. Lots of visits since. Many years ago I had a patient whose brother was one of the early wolfmen. Cool stuff.

It's more than just a bear show, apparently [cue X-Files music].

I was camping in NH last week. We were driving past Clark's so I had to drop in for old time's sake. The big scary Wolfman was outside the gift shop signing a stuffed animal for some mom's now grown-up son. He's not nearly as scary when he's holding a plushie. Good to meet you!

I'm embarrassed to admit it, but with all the times we've been up there - and now with the house lot in Lisbon - I've never been to Clark's. That may have to change. [grin]

Oh man, we drove through Lincoln two days ago, if I'd seen this thread we'd have visited. I heard the old guy died so we skipped Clark's. :(

Norwood mostly.
I remember going to Clarks Trading Post as a child, a very long time ago. The bears and the Wolfman were so cool.
We went to all of the usual touristy parks, Six Gun City, Santa's Village, StoryLand, Polar Caves, etc. Fast forward 30 years, I made sure my kids had the same adventures. My youngest son said he wanted to be the Wolfman at Clarks when he grew up. I showed him your post today and he was so happy for you! Congratulations, to enjoy your job makes it less than work!!!
We went by Six Gun City two weeks ago on the way to Santa's Village, it's a ghost town.
