This may change how people enjoy going to theme parks when they open back up in April. Personally, I don’t really scream on scary rides…I just kind of close my eyes until it’s all over.
The California Attractions and Park Association (CAPA) is supporting a plan to help stop the spread of the coronavirus. The plan is to asking patrons not to scream on park rides. This includes rides at Disneyland, Universal Studios, Six Flags and Knott’s Berry Farm. Riders will be asked to keep their excitement down.
Before you get REALLY mad, the CAPA has stated, “Face covering usage and/or modifications to seat loading patterns will be required on amusement park rides to mitigate the effects of shouting. Additionally, on rides, guests generally face in one direction.”
So, if you accidentally scream (it happens), wearing a face mask is still a good idea. I think they’re just suggesting not screaming for the hell of it instead of a knee-jerk reaction.
