Amusement Park Workers
Employment of recreation workers overall is expected to grow faster than the average for all occupations through 2024, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Opportunities for amusement park workers should be good in the coming years. The economy is starting to rebound from the recent recession, and families who are still budget conscious may be more inclined to spend their vacation money visiting local attractions, such as amusement parks, rather than paying for extensive travel. Most jobs will be for seasonal full-time work. Because the summer months are usually the busiest season at most U.S. amusement parks, employers compete to hire high school and college students who are on break from school. Most job opportunities will result from seasonal openings or current workers leaving the workforce. New construction of amusement parks is limited due to lack of funding, available land, and markets large enough to support such a project.
