July is usually its busiest month and the park employs over 700 people. As for the job fair, over 600 people applied online for the 200 available positions.
Wendi Burke, the Human Resources Director for Wild Adventures, said "for us it's really important that anyone that hasn't had a job before, we can come in and they can be trained. On a ride, as a lifeguard, or they can be trained in food and beverage. And then usually the next season they come back a lot of times they have an opportunity to be promoted from within."
Wild Adventures officially opens on March 17.
