VALDOSTA, Ga. – Wild Adventures Theme Park in Valdosta, Georgia is now hosting job fairs every Monday afternoon to hire employees for a new fall event: Great Pumpkin Luminights. “Great Pumpkin Luminights is a huge addition to our park, and families will be visiting from throughout our region.

Wild Adventures is seeking to hire more than 200 new employees immediately for the remainder of summer and to prepare for the new fall event.

“Great Pumpkin Luminights is the largest new event Wild Adventures has ever added. It will feature larger-than-life pumpkin sculptures, new entertainment and the return of the Pumpkin Spice Festival, but it’s our exceptional team members that will really bring this event to life,” said Vigue. “I would encourage anyone who loves putting smiles on faces to apply to join our team.”

Positions are available in all departments, including attractions, food and beverage, park services, maintenance, games, photography and more. According to Vigue, some positions start at $10 an hour.
