I know this post is extremely late, but surprisingly there are many Theme Parks that are currently seeking to fill positions.
There are Theme and Amusement Parks across the country that hire on a seasonal/year-round basis.
The average pay I noticed while researching seems to be between $8.50-$10/hour depending on which position you choose.
Many of the positions are seasonal, though others that have nice weather year ’round can keep their parks open throughout the year.
I tried to find locations across the country and not just the most popular locations. Believe it or not Amusement/Theme Parks can be found all over the world.
Many of the current positions available are associated with Customer Service. If you shine, or just enjoy working with the public you may enjoy an Amusement Park position.
There is not really much training needed for such positions, and they probably fill quickly. The more skilled positions are those that may be a bit harder to fill: may not be many skilled workers looking at Theme Parks as a place to consider employment.
