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.
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.
