Theme parks in US told to protect guests from rollercoaster screams

Theme parks in California have been urged to protect guests from those screaming on rollercoasters to minimise the risks of coronavirus.

Theme parks have been urged to protect guests from others screaming on rollercoasters amid the coronavirus pandemic.


Attractions in California have been asked to take extra steps to make sure visitors aren't spreading COVID-19 by screaming on the rides when the parks reopen in the US state next month.

The California Attractions and Parks Association (CAPA) wrote in its reopening plan: "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."

CAPA have also called on the parks to limit any activities that involve singing and shouting to minimise the spread of the virus.

Theme parks in California have been closed since March 2020 and attractions such as Disneyland are preparing to reopen to visitors in April.
