MASON, Ohio -- Kings Island plans a March 4 job fair as it seeks to fill some 4,200 seasonal positions for the 2017 season.
The southwest Ohio amusement park opens April 15. Job opportunities are in a range of areas including rides, lifeguards, entertainment and security.
The job fair runs from 9 a.m.- 4 p.m. Those interested should be at least 16 years old, and should apply online before coming to the job fair for an interview.
The park is opening a new attraction this year: Mystic Timbers, a 109-foot-tall, 3,265-foot-long wooden roller coaster. It will be located in the Rivertown area of Kings Island near White Water Canyon and the K.I. & Miami Valley Railroad.
Kings Island is among parks owned and operated by Ohio-based Cedar Fair Entertainment Company.
