More than 2,500 show up for Ky Kingdom job fair

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A job fair for the reopening of the Kentucky Kingdom amusement park in Louisville drew about 2,500 people hoping to work at the park when it reopens in May.

Park spokesman John Mulcahy told The Courier-Journal that the park had received about 3,500 job applications. It intends to hire just over 1,000 seasonal workers.

Mulcahy said the number of applications will mean many of the positions will be competitive.

A group headed by businessman Ed Hart plans to reopen the park on May 24; it last operated in 2009 when Six Flags decided to shut it down.

The park is offering jobs in more than 20 areas , including guest services, health services, food services, catering, sanitation, ride operations, horticulture, merchandise sales, games, security and water safety.
