Six Flags Great Adventure, Wild Safari, and Hurricane Harbor today announced that it will raise the wages of many positions for the 2021 season. The parks also released the highly-anticipated launch dates of guest reservations. All three parks will offer safety-focused fun and thrills, plus exciting, new additions.

“Many positions will now pay $15 per hour, which is a $4 per hour increase, and leadership positions will pay even more. We want to recruit team members who will maintain our high standards of safety and guest service, and it’s crucial that we offer competitive wages to attract and retain these top employees,” said Park President John Winkler. “This wage increase is a demonstration of our commitment to being the employer of choice for central New Jersey,” he said.

Some positions will start at $15 per hour, while others will offer additional earning potential during certain shifts. The most significant wage increases will impact food and beverage operations, custodial services, security, shuttle drivers, and lifeguards.

“It’s a common misconception that we employ mostly teens. We offer incredible growth opportunities for all ages in careers from A to Z, aquatics to zoology,” said Human Resources Director Brad McClain. The parks employ team members as young as 14, and adults of all ages. “Teachers and second-wage earners enjoy our flexibility. Our ‘young at heart’ program for those aged 65 and up has been a staple for decades,” he added.
