Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari officials expect to receive a record number of job applications as they prepare to fill 2,200 seasonal positions in the coming weeks.

“We’re looking for friendly and energetic individuals who want to help families enjoy their getaways with us,” says Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari President Matt Eckert. “We’re like a small city – we have quite a variety of jobs available. We need ride operators, lifeguards, and sweepers, plus team members for admissions, grounds, shops, and foods.”

Most of the park’s seasonal positions are available to applicants who will be 16 years and older by April 2018. A limited number of jobs require a minimum age of 14 years on the date of application. Retirees and other adults seeking seasonal employment are also encouraged to apply.

Job seekers should visit to view job descriptions and fill out an online application.

Seasonal benefits include: a personal Season Pass, park food and merchandise discounts, employee parties, incentive and awards programs, free admission to other parks, and more.

This season, the park will again offer an Employee Transportation Program for seasonal employees who would not otherwise have a ride to work. Available at a nominal fee, bus rides will be offered from Evansville, Newburgh, Boonville, Lynnville, Haubstadt, Huntingburg, Jasper, Ferdinand, and Tell City, Indiana, plus Owensboro, Kentucky.

Holiday World opens its 72nd season on May 5; Splashin’ Safari’s opening day is May 10. New this season are Tembo Falls, including eight junior water slides, and Tembo Tides junior wave pool.
