With California theme parks getting ready to reopen, there are a few things that you need to know.

To me this is a pretty big deal, so before you buy your tickets, you need to know that you can not scream on a ride.

I’m dead serious.

I know some people scream because they want to, however, plenty of people scream because they can’t help it. How are they supposed to manage a natural emotion?

As part of the California Attractions and Parks Associations (CAPA) plan for reopening, there is to be no shouting on rides. Yep, even rollercoasters as your adrenaline is pumping… better be quiet!

They say this is part of their effort to help prevent the spread of coronavirus. The guidelines say that in order for these attractions to reopen, that they must limit activities that can spread the virus.

Two specific things listed are singing and shouting. How?

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.

Los Angeles and Orange counties are in the red tier of the state’s reopening blueprint this week, this means theme parks can reopen beginning April 1.

Under the new guidelines, they can reopen at 15% capacity, but with in-state visitors only. And absolutely NO SCREAMERS!

I dunno y’all… I personally can’t do rides anymore due to my illness. However, I did in the past.

I can tell you that I had ZERO level of control on what came out of my mouth when I was speeding down a steep hill or flipping upside down on a rollercoaster.

So, um… good luck with that rule!
