You will have access to free park admission for a large portion of the season, as well as discounted tickets available to purchase for your friends and family that come to visit Adventureland.
Summer Working Conditions
Adventureland is about 180 acres in size and that means any job assignment will require you to be physically able to walk to and from your location, be on your feet and actively involved with guests. Most positions require little or no experience. The majority of work assignments will expose you to the Iowa weather which can vary significantly from chilly and rainy to hot and humid throughout a season. You must be able to tolerate the heat and humidity of the Iowa summer. No matter what the weather conditions are, our employees are vital in developing the fun culture our guests have come to expect when visiting Adventureland Park. All positions involve being on your feet and remaining active while interacting with our guests. Positions are indoors, semi-outdoors, and completely outdoors. Most indoor positions are not air-conditioned.
During weekend operations - April/May & mid-August to October
- Be available to work Saturday and Sunday.
During full-time daily operations - May to mid-Aug
