Character Description Example
Balloon Artist, Bo– Bo the Balloon Artist is a practical joker. Everyone loves the helium filled creations, although sometimes they go flying in the air. Misty Marsh has complained about this to Bo and management. Fly-away balloons end up in the oceans and polluting our world. Children walk around the park with balloon orca hats, balloon boats, and balloon swords. Bo loves to tease the guests and employees alike. Bo is being questioned because some balloons were found jammed in the machinery on some of the rides. How did they get there? Was it by chance or was it on purpose?
