Do Amusement Park Open In All Seasons?

Many amusement parks, mostly water parks, are not opened in winter due to bad weather conditions, especially in the North East (Chicago, New York, etc). Snow and cold weather can also make the rides difficult to function properly. Although there are still parks that stay open all year like Disney and Universal Studios, most amusement parks are opened for the summer.

How to Apply Jobs at the Amusement Park

Since most theme parks open during summer, it means that you have to submit job application before school breaks, except if the park open all seasons. Generally, you must be at least 14 years old to apply for jobs (Rental Attendant for example). Some other jobs are Lifeguard (minimum age 15), Ride Operator, Ticket Seller, live Singers or Dancers, etc.
