Amusement Park Workers


Though many entry-level amusement park employees earn minimum wage ($7.25 an hour, or $15,080 annually for full-time work) or slightly higher, weekly salaries will vary depending on the type and size of facility and its location. (Most amusement parks choose not to divulge salary information due to confidentiality reasons, though they do offer wages competitive with similar industries.) The U.S. Department of Labor reports that recreation workers of all types made a median annual salary of $25,060 in May 2018. The lowest paid 10 percent made less than $18,470, while the highest paid 10 percent made more than $42,670.
