Love Lakeside Amusement Park? Why not work there, as well as visit?

You can't keep the Wild Chipmunk down. Lakeside Amusement Park, a Denver-area staple since 1908, is preparing to re-open this summer and you can help give it a happy 2021 launch! 

Due to COVID-19, Lakeside didn't open to the public during its 2020 season. Now that regulations have been loosened, the iconic fun park is getting ready to once again welcome fans. 

Currently, the park said it will open sometime mid-summer, but that will depend on a few things—most importantly being able to bring enough staff on to keep it all running smoothly. While some staff was kept on during 2020 to keep the grounds up and make some improvements (including a few new rides!), much of the previous workforce moved on to other jobs. 

"Do you love Lakeside and the magic that can come to life in the summer? Lakeside is gearing up to open this summer and is looking to hire all sorts of wonderful, capable people," said Lakeside's Facebook page. 

Are you an amusement park enthusiast or looking for a summer job? Lakeside needs your skills! It will be hiring mechanics, maintenance, cashiers, concession stand staff, office staff, and much more (including a magician helper)! 

You must be 18 or older to apply and be available to work evenings and weekends, depending on the position. 

As soon as the amusement park has enough staff hired and trained, it will announce a solid opening date. You can check out the website at lakesideamusementpark.com/ to stay up to date and apply for any open positions, or sign up for alerts via email
