California theme park operators encouraged to "mitigate the effects of shouting" on rides when they reopen

Posted | Contributed by Jeff

California's Attractions and Parks Association is recommending that park officials encourage riders to "mitigate the effects of shouting" on roller coasters and thrill rides to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Under the association's "responsible reopening plan" that was released in September, park officials can do so by requiring face masks and modifying the seating on rides.

That is a lot funnier for those of us that live here and have to read the prop 65 signs everywhere.

It is much funnier, but I’m sure CA’s rep as overregulating everything makes it funny nonetheless.

I thought the Californians visited Florida to see the protocols, they must have mistaken and went to Japan instead.

CGA can comply with this by only opening Grizzly.

Lots of people scream on Grizzly, but for different reasons.

That far turnaround alone may violate the CDC guidelines of limiting time together in groups less than six feet apart.

On Grizzly the issue isn't so much the screaming as the snoring.

Unfortunately and predictably, this story keeps coming up in my various searches, not as a recommendation by the trade association that represents SoCal parks, but as a liberal left wing politician overreach campaign. People are stupid.
