Mike Oswald | Chief Operating Officer

With over 20 years of experience in the amusement and water park industry, Mike is well placed to offer his services as COO of ProFun Management Group and a Principal with Management Resources.

Prior to studying at the University of Southern California, Mike began working part-time in 1992 as a lifeguard at Raging Waters in Los Angeles, California, one of the largest waterparks in the United States, eventually becoming the Manager of the Admissions and Rentals departments.

In 2003, he joined Southland Entertainment, a company which had just bought Alabama Adventure, a 90-acre amusement and waterpark.  Originally starting as the Operations and Maintenance Manager, Mike gradually worked his way up to becoming the General Manager, overseeing the park’s return to profitable operations and sale of the park to Adrenaline Family Entertainment.

In 2008, Mike joined the ProFun as Vice President, Operations and worked with the team to open Ferrari World Abu Dhabi and to work on the development of the Warner Bros. theme park.  In 2009, he was named the General Manager for Yas Waterworld.  In this role, Mike led the team through the feasibility, design, and construction process and ultimately to a very successful grand opening, in which the park was rated one of the top waterparks in the world.

In 2013, he was named General Manager of Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, the largest indoor theme park in the world, in addition to remaining General Manager of Yas Waterworld.  In this position, Mike worked to increase the operational synergies between the two parks as well as expand the reach of the marketing and sales efforts globally to markets such as China and India.

Mike returned to ProFun headquarters in 2014 and will be responsible for overseeing projects globally and to expand the company’s expertise into new markets.
