The 364-acre amusement park at 6300 Kings Island Drive in Mason will host a virtual National Hiring Day March 13. Candidates may register at www.visitkings­island.com/hiringday.

A Gold and Platinum season Passholder Preview weekend takes place May 8 and 9. Kings Island will open its gates to the general public on May 15. Soak City Water Park will open on May 29.

This year’s hiring effort includes 1,000 fewer employees than its 2020 effort, which was announced in mid-January, two months before COVID-19 truncated the park’s season.

Kings Island will host a virtual hiring event on March 13 to hire more than 4,000 associates for the 2021 season. The park is also offering contact-free onboarding and virtual orientatio­n to help hires prepare to start work.

Job opportunit­ies are available in all park operating areas, including rides, merchandis­e, lifeguards, park services, food and beverage, guest services and more. The virtual hiring day will offer informatio­n about available jobs and

individual interviews with hiring teams. The park is also offering contact-free onboarding and virtual orientatio­n to help hires prepare to start work.

“For many of our associates, their job at Kings Island helps pave the way for future career opportunit­ies by providing skills, experience­s, memories and friendship­s that last a lifetime,” Mike Koontz, the park’s vice president and general manager, said in a release. “Our virtual hiring day on March 13 will be a safe, informativ­e and easy way to connect with the hiring team at Kings Island.”

Kings Island said it offers flexible schedules and “many perks” for its associates, including discounts, reward and recognitio­n programs, exclusive events and free admission to any Cedar Fair park.

The Warren County amusement park is owned and operated by Cedar Fair Entertainm­ent Company (NYSE: FUN), one of the largest regional amusement-resort operators in the world.
