Health and Safety Tips to protect against COVID-19
Updated April 2022

We want you to know that the safety of our Guests and Team Members is our top priority, always. We continue to practice the highest standards to best provide a safe, fun experience. We can’t do it alone, though! We count on everyone’s efforts to do their part by following our rules and policies listed online and around the park. Read on for more information about our park operations this summer.

The way we will operate upon reopening is significantly different from what we are all used to as we adapt to the new landscape created by COVID-19. While we are committed to enhanced standards in an effort to keep you as healthy and safe as possible, there remains an inherent and elevated risk of exposure to COVID-19 in any public place and any place where people are present. Please, read this page fully to ensure the best experience possible as you plan your visit and join us. Also, be sure to review important updates to our Operating Schedule.

While we are committed to enhanced standards in an effort to keep you as healthy and safe as possible, there remains an inherent and elevated risk of exposure to COVID-19 in any public place and any place where people are present. People who do not show symptoms can still spread COVID-19. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, senior citizens and persons with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable and at higher risk for severe illness. Guests should familiarize themselves with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and evaluate their risk in determining whether they should attend our facilities. If you or a family member are ill or think that you may be getting ill, please postpone your visit until you are well. By visiting our facility, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.
