Tem Member Spotlight- Rides and Attractions

February 10, 2012

The hiring season is under way at Idlewild & SoakZone! We only have about 3 more months until we hear the Rollo Coaster roaring through the trees!

This week we are going to spotlight the Rides & Attractions Department! When our Guests think about Idlewild – you have to believe the RIDES are one of their first thoughts!

Have you ever thought about becoming the operator of the famous WILD MOUSE? How about being the one to send the HOWLER spinning through Hoot n Holler? The Rides & Attractions Department employs over 200 Team Members! They all help create the thrills; screams & laughter heard throughout the park – all while keeping SAFETY their top priority!

Many of our current full-time staff at Idlewild started their career as a Rides & Attractions Team Member and have moved on to be Ride Inspectors/Mechanics, Rides & Attractions Department Manager, Director of Facilities & Maintenance, Director of Operations and even the General Manager of Idlewild & SoakZone! Each and everyone of those Team Members have started out at an entry level position at Idlewild and worked their way up to become a full-time Team Member!

Do you think you have what it takes to be a part of the team? It may be one of the best decisions you can make! Not too many people can say they drive the train at Idlewild, or operate the famous Carousel that is over 80 years old! Let’s not forget about our friends in Hoot n Holler that are some of the best old western characters around! Our Rides & Attractions Team Members provide the most fun in the park! How could you have a bad day watching children enjoy their favorite ride & knowing YOU are responsible for all of those BIG smiling faces!

With a wide variety of Rides & Attractions here at Idlewild – there is definitely a spot for you! If you like working with a team, having fun & creating memories that last a lifetime…Idlewild & SoakZone is the place for you!

Hope to see you at the park for open interviews every Tuesday & Thursday from 3:00pm – 5:00pm.
