California Theme Parks Ban Screaming on Roller Coasters

To help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

As California prepares to re-open theme parks in early April, the state’s Attractions and Parks Association has recommended that officials discourage screaming and shouting on rides.

The state’s “responsible reopening plan,” which was announced in September, asks that all businesses — not just theme parks — limit activities including singing and shouting, which increase the amount of potentially infected particles sprayed into the air. The plan also gives park officials the right to mandate face masks and modify seating arrangements on rides.
