Holiday World hires roughly 2000 people each summer in a variety of departments- rides, foods, games, etc. However, they also recruit mascots, sound technicians and even drone crews!

In the words of Holiday World Media Manager Sabrina Jones, these are the perfect jobs for "outgoing, theatre, techy kids who'd love to have this as a summer gig."

The drone flight crew is an amazing opportunity as well.  Last year, Holiday World launched its first ever drone show.

The drone flight crew is in charge of preparing the drones each night before the show. That show, by the way, is expanding this year with even more drones added to the lineup.  And that means the park has the demand for even more drone flight crew!

If you're looking specifically to spend your summer as Holidog, Kitty Claws, George the Eagle or Safari Sam, you also need to attend the audition on Saturday.  Report to the HR lobby starting at 1pm, Saturday!

Holiday World opens for the 2023 season on Saturday, May 6th. Splashin' Safari will open for the season two weeks later on May 20th.
