Hcareers is a growing job board for theme park employment. Industry employers need to fill positions in customer service and ticket sales as well as hire ride operators, game operators, performers, entertainers, refreshment vendors, grounds keepers and maintenance professionals. Most theme park and amusement park positions are even entry-level.

In fact, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), 37 percent of professionals holding theme park jobs have only a high school education. On-the-job training is common, and young workers, including students, often fill jobs at amusement parks. An upbeat attitude, friendly nature and outgoing personality are essential as almost all amusement park jobs require interacting with the public.

According to IBISWorld, a business information company, U.S. amusement parks are an $11 billion industry employing close to 108,000 professionals at 489 establishments (as of December 2011). While the industry suffered during the recession, revenue is expected to increase as the economy improves and more families visit theme and amusement parks for fun. According to the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions, more than 135 new rides and attractions will open in 2012 at more than 50 U.S. theme parks, water parks and other family-oriented entertainment establishments.
