As we sit here in chilly January, the summer season of rollercoasters, thrill rides and outdoor parks seems like it will never arrive. For those of us that live in colder climates with seasonal parks, this is prime time for getting a position in a park. Many seasonal amusement and theme parks have begun their recruitment campaigns for the summer. Don’t worry if you’re  lucky enough to live in a warm climate with parks open year round, they’re recruiting too as summer is peak season.
