About Corolla Adventure Park
Our adventure park is a one-of-a-kind designed, giant jungle gym in the sky. Our pair of local owners are experienced builders and operators with a passion for the aerial adventure park industry. Aside from the epic 66 obstacles, and 8 zipline park, we maintain our own grounds that include an axe-throwing arena and have a small bar area where we keep local beers on draft and a selection of snacks. All our obstacle building, maintenance and general operation is done in-house, so we thrive with a small staff that loves to have diversity day to day and work in a fast-paced environment.

Room and Board
We provide housing for staff. There are 2 staff houses that are a combination of 2 to a room or single room depending on the season you are working and staff size each year.

Both houses are within walking distance of each other and are in a private neighborhood with beach access! We offer a few different rent structures depending on your preference as well as the season you utilize the housing. Fall and Spring staff have FREE room and board including utilities, Summer staff can pay out of pocket for rent or elect for a decrease in hourly wage instead of having rent deducted. We do checks of communal areas (never your private bedrooms) each week to try and ensure comfortable living quarters for all styles of living and provide all cleaning supplies.

We offer seasonal bonuses and perks throughout employment at every opportunity we can.
Getting Here and Getting Around
Part of what makes Corolla special is its remoteness. Once here, there are grocery stores, shopping and restaurants within 1 mile of staff housing. Our park is about 5 miles from the houses and is an easy drive or bike ride. You actually get $5 for each time you bike! Most staff drive from various parts of the US to work so that they can bring a car. The closest airport is Norfolk International about 1.5 hours away, but overall an easy drive. We are ultimately flexible in accommodating arrangements for the right candidate.
Corolla is a gorgeous town rich in history. Of course the main attraction is the amazing beach right out of your back door. You can surf, swim, SUP or sunbathe. Old lighthouses dot the whole OBX coast and are awesome to see. The Currituck lighthouse is 1/4 mile form the park! Whalehead club offers open green park space to fish, sling a hammock up or watch the sunset from 'the point' that extends into the Currituck sound. Since it's only about a mile wide, if the beach isn't always your thing, the Currituck sound offers another amazing view of our coast. You can paddleboard or kayak through lush march to fish or birdwatch. Just north of the park the highway turns to sand and you can take 4 wheel drive vehicles to see the wild horses that live on the coast. There are small trails that take you through maritime forests or shops and yoga studios if that's more your scene.
