Here’s How Much Workers at Amusement Parks Make Per Year

Method and data source

The salaries of amusement park workers in the US vary widely. The Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Occupational Employment and Wage Statistics program offers data on employment and wages across different occupations and industries.

According to BLS, the amusement parks and arcades industry employed about 153,360 people in May 2021, the most recent period for which data is available. The typical annual wage for all occupations in this industry is lower than the median for all occupations regardless of industry. The median annual wage in the amusement parks and arcades industry was $26,730, far below the median across all industries of $45,760.

For our analysis, we looked at the occupations with at least 1,000 employees in the amusement parks and arcades industry in May 2021. We then ranked this set of occupations from the lowest to highest median annual wage.

In addition to the annual salaries, the above slides also include the number of people employed in each occupation in this industry.
