Amusement Park Workers

High School

Most larger amusement parks require their employees to be at least 16 years old. Many high school students work at amusement parks every summer as a way to supplement their income while in school. If you want to stand out from the other applicants, consider taking classes such as mathematics, if you want to work ticket booths, gift shops, or anyplace where calculating and giving correct change is important; mechanics or industrial arts, if you want to work and maintain thrill rides; or speech and theater, if you want to be a performer. Unless you bear an uncanny resemblance to Bugs Bunny or Goofy, then it will be helpful to know how to dance and sing!
