  • Our Mission

    Our Mission is to Provide the Finest in Family Fun & Entertainment!

    A show as large as ours makes flexible scheduling and part-time scheduling available. Tell us when you are available. We may have a schedule that fits your needs. Keep in mind that availability dates and times are very important and have a strong bearing on consideration for employment. After all, we have a show to produce! Hours may fluctuate due to weather and park attendance. Therefore, we cannot guarantee a specific number of hours each week. Everyday "the show must go on" for our guests making it vital that you have reliable transportation.

    Just like our Guests who come back year after year... you will want to come back to Idlewild & SoakZone each summer. Most of our Team Leaders have worked their way from seasonal employees to full-time or part-time managers. Many of our Team Members are students and have never had previous employment. They find that the friendly and fun atmosphere here is a great place to get experience!

    Calling all Teachers, Parents, and Senior Citizens...Idlewild is looking for you, too!! Earn extra summer money. Work weekends. We are flexible. You, too, can be part of the growing Team of adult employees at Idlewild. If you like working outdoors, catering, or simply working with people, this could be the place for you.
