2. Water Slide Tester: Around $26,000 Per Year
When asking kids what they want to be when they grow up, the answers usually range from firefighter and doctor to astronaut. Those aspirations might as well be thrown out the window if someone tells them sliding down water slides is actually a legitimate career option.
Okay, so the actual salary is only about $26,000 per year, so some supplemental income might be required for the fun-loving souls who choose to take this (literally slippery) career path. Becoming a water slide tester can also serve as supplemental income for a young person in college. The bottom line is that you can actually be paid for having fun!
