"General knowledge" of 4160?
Stay away unless you have SPECIFIC knowledge. That's all you need to know.
The link below is a 13 minute long video on electrical hazards and injuries at voltages under 600v. Be warned, some parts are quite graphic.
Now imagine the severity of a 5000v contact...if the voltage doesn't kill you, the force of the blast knocking you across a room, off a ladder, etc surely will.
You will also NEED to know what THEIR specific (not "general") procedure is for Lock-out/Tag-out (LOTO). The rides have many safety features(limit switches, fuses, etc) built in to protect the general public (ie, paying customers)...but what protects YOU from an accidental start? LOTO.
Here's the video...speakers will be needed: http://www.electrician.com/safety/electricalsafety_01.htm
