SANDUSKY, Ohio (Aug. 5, 2014) – Cedar Point is looking for hundreds of fun, enthusiastic people of all ages who want to work at the “Best Amusement Park in the World” this fall for the park’s 18th annual HalloWeekends event.

For those who get a thrill out of scaring unsuspecting people, working as a Screamster is just for you! Cedar Point hires more than 300 Screamsters who are transformed into witches, zombies and various other undead monsters whose “soul” job is to scare guests who dare to venture into the park’s haunted houses and outdoor fright zones. A wide variety of other great jobs are available, including positions in park operations, food services, accommodations, games, merchandise and more.

Cedar Point will also be providing bus transportation to and from Bowling Green State University, Oberlin College, Kent State and the University of Toledo for students who want to work at the park this fall. Free weekend housing is available to those who qualify.

Interview sessions will be held each Sunday in August from 2-7 p.m. at Cedar Point’s Castaway Bay indoor waterpark, located at 2001 Cleveland Road, Sandusky. To apply for a job, please fill out an application online at cedarpoint.com/jobs prior to attending the interview session.

During HalloWeekends, Cedar Point makes the eerie transformation into a Halloween-themed playground full of family-friendly fun and entertainment during the day and spooky creatures, haunted houses, terrifying mazes and more after the sun goes down.

This year’s annual fright fest will feature several new attractions, live shows, kid-friendly activities and more. Highlighting the list of what’s new will be Hexed, a haunted house overrun by decrepit witches whose minions (and spells) have gone horribly awry, and Tombstone Terror-tory, a ghost-town themed fright zone. New live (or dead) entertainment options include a new course and surprises for the ultra-popular Monster Midway Invasion Celebration parade, a band of roving buccaneers and live performances by Halloween music maestro’s Midnight Syndicate. Kids will delight in the expanded Howl-O-Palooza area which will feature a new cornstalk maze, mask-making station, pony rides and more.

HalloWeekends takes place on Friday nights, Saturdays and Sundays, Sept. 12 through Nov. 1. For more information, log on to cedarpoint.com.
