Here are six reasons why being a lifeguard at Oceans of Fun is the best summer job in Kansas City!

6) Soaking Up The Sun

After suffering a long and harsh winter, nothing beats having a job over the summer that allows you to enjoy the beautiful summer weather. Not to mention, working outside will help you get a sweet tan.

5) Operate (and ride) Thrilling Slides

Being a lifeguard at Oceans of Fun is full of excitement! There is no better way to mix up your day than having the opportunity to send guests down our exciting slides and ensuring their day is full of fun.

Each morning before we open the waterpark, lifeguards get to “test” our water slides. Plus, when you're relieved from your shift at the top of a slide, you get a refreshing slide to the bottom. Who else can say their summer job pays them to ride water slides?
