How would you like to work with a bunch of animals or say your job is a real roller coaster ride? Alright, maybe you've been down that road before. But this time, you could say it and mean it.

Six Flags Discovery Kingdom in Vallejo is looking for 1,300 seasonal workers as they get ready for warmer days. They open March 6 for the season.

The park needs to hire tram drivers, food and retail staff, game and warehouse workers, entertainment hosts and guest relations staff. There are several full-time positions open at the park but the bulk of the jobs are seasonal.

They've been accepting applications online since the beginning of the year and so far, the turnout is big. More than 1,200 applications have already been submitted, park spokeswoman Nancy Chan said. That's more than double the number of online applicants the park accepted this time last year.

The major difference between the field of applicants this year versus last year is age, Chan said. More adults have applied for the seasonal jobs this year, making the summer job hunt that much harder for teens.

There's a job fair at the park this Saturday starting at 10 a.m. Anyone 16 or older can apply for open positions.
