Anyone fancy getting paid to hide in a maze and scare the crap out of visitors to Valleyfair?

Well now you can apply to do just that, with the Shakopee theme park announcing it's looking for 500 employees for its ValleySCARE Halloween festival.

There are positions available for its family-friendly Great Pumpkin Fest as well as its adult Halloween Haunt.

Among the positions available are for character actors, who will be tasked with performing in the many immersive scare experiences planned for this year's extravaganza.

If jumping out at people and threatening to slice them up isn't your thang, you can be costumed characters for the Pumpkin Fest, while positions for ride attendants, food and drink sellers, and security personnel are also available.

To apply, you can pop down to Valleyfair this Saturday between 4-7 p.m. when it's hosting an onsite job fair. If you're an actor, the interview may include "improv activities and vocal exercises."
