It's crazy to think with the weather we have right now that Summer will be here before we know it. So why not secure some Summer money to fund your plans? Well, a Rockford water park will be hiring hundreds of people.

Hurricane Harbor Rockford announced they'll be hiring roughly 500 people this summer.

A spokeswoman with Six Flags Great America says a hiring event will be happening on Mar. 1.

The spokesperson says if individuals want to start applying now, they can by going to and clicking on Hurricane Harbor Rockford.

The park will also be debuting Tidal Wave this season, which will be the Midwest’s first tailspin waterslide.

The waterslide sends riders through three high-speed turns in a two-person inner tube. It will be the waterpark’s 12th waterslide and is scheduled to debut Summer 2020.

The park will also get a ton of other upgrades and "extensive tropical theming" throughout the park.
