Work at an Amusement Park!

If you're looking for some on-the-job fun, check out the positions you can score at your local amusement park. But this isn't just a summer job; it's more like a paid vacation! Just think about it - you'll be surrounded by rides, games, entertaining shows and mouth-watering munchies all day long!

Amusement Park Jobs - Ticket Attendants

Ticket attendants sell tickets to enter the amusement park. They also give directions and hand out maps. It's important to be a people person cuz you'll be dealing with everyone who comes into the park and answering any questions they have. Oh, and you'll be stuck inside a small ticketing booth all day, which is great on days when it's pouring rain - but that's about it.

Amusement Park Jobs - Concession Staff

Working the concession stand can be pretty demanding. You'll always have starving and thirsty peeps waiting in line for you to whip them up a stick of cotton candy, butter up some popcorn or slap ketchup and mustard onto their hot dogs. Just be sure you don't snack on the job - your job is to sell 'em, not eat 'em!

Amusement Park Jobs - Rides Operators

Rides operators usually have to be at least 16 years old cuz there's a lot of responsibility that comes with this job. You have to start and stop the ride, explain the rules of the ride, help peeps in and out of the ride and make sure they're safely strapped in. Rides operators tend to get great tans from standing out in the sun all day, so it's important to slather on the sunscreen!

Amusement Park Jobs - Games Attendants

Can you think of anything better than playing games all day long, all summer long? We sure can't, and that's why the games department is one of the coolest places to work. You'll need a good set of vocal chords cuz you'll be screaming and yelling at peeps (in a good way) to get their attention so that they'll come over to your booth and play a few rounds of your game. If they win - which happens once in a blue moon - you get to hand out a prize!

Amusement Park Jobs - Costumed Characters

You'll definitely work up a sweat by walking around in a cartoon costume, greeting and entertaining the amusement park folks and handing out balloons to all the kiddies. You'll most likely be wearing the mascot of your local amusement park, but if you're lucky enough to work at Disneyland, you just may get to be Mickey Mouse!

Amusement Park Jobs - Cleaners

This isn't the greatest job. In fact, it kinda stinks, but someone's got to do it, right? Aside from not needing any previous work experience, one of the perks of this position is that you don't have to deal with any rude or whiny peeps - just a whole lot of smelly garbage! To make things easier for ya, clip on some nose plugs, tune into your MP3 player and constantly remind yourself that a clean park is a happy park.

Amusement Park Jobs - Bottom Line

So some of these jobs may be cooler than others, but working any position at an amusement park is enough fun to last a summer. And when you finish your shift, you can play games, go on the rides, pig out on junk food and watch shows - all for free! So head down to your local fairgrounds to find out what job opportunities are open to you.

    Hii, i want to give advice to all of you about this subject. first of all, always trust your BFF. why?, it's because she/he is the one who makes you feel like a family and always be there with you. Second, always remember your BFF where ever you are. i got this idea from my bff whose not n the same school with me. 8 February was her birthday while i said happy birthday to her 2 day later (i know i'm the worst). i literally panicked and said sorry to her like a thousand times. while she said "it's okay, i'm glad someone in your school (because some of us transfers here at my new school too) remembers my birthday, maybe all of them already forget me" she answered (which i'm touched). and the last, never ever betray your BFF. like i said at the start, they are like your family and will do anything for you to be happy. so keep their trust too. and that's all from me, hope it's helpful. love ya [s:sm3/1jw1]

    I don't know you and I'm not exactly sure how you act, but being friendly is definitely the way to go. Don't change yourself for ANYBODY. Especially someone who you don't need to impress. Speaking of impressing, don't try, do. If you are telling a story and that happens to impress them than that's great! But don't go out of your way to try to make yourself look awesome because I'm sure you already are. Be yourself. But the most important thug now you can do is not try to make a million friends. Because personally I would rather have one AWESOME friend than a million ok friends. I hope this helped. :)
