How Disney, Universal, and Independent Attractions Have Adapted Amusement Park Operations during COVID-19

How Disney, Universal, and Independent Attractions Have Adapted Amusement Park Operations during COVID-19

  Theme parks look a little bit different these days. As some parks reopen – and others decide to slow down reopening plans – those who can go have proven they will. Open parks are busy with guests eager to get back to the business of fun. But when they arrive, they'll see a lot of differences, some for the better. In that category is the concept of virtual attraction queues as opposed to long, endless, hot lines in-person.

That ground is put to good use, with a new entrance area, as a home for the park's carrousel. There's several new retail experiences as well, including the Hersheypark Supply Co. flagship shopping experience, and the park's first Starbucks.Along with all the fun, guests will find the coronavirus response solidly in place, from cleaning and sanitizing by park employees to sanitization stations throughout the park.To visit, guests must first make reservations at the park.

  Last week, the Kentucky State Fair announced significant modifications to the 2020 State Fair.  In June, the fair announced its plans to move forward with a 2020 fair complete with a carnival midway, vendors, and entertainment.  On August 6, the fair reversed its decision, cancelling the midway, entertainment, vendors, and limiting participation to participants only.  The fair is scheduled for August 20-30 and would have marked the debut of a new midway provided by Kissel Entertainment.   In a prepared release, the Kentucky State Fair said: The Kentucky State Fair is responding to the spread of COVID-19 by closing the public portion of the event. Only participants and assisting family members will be able to attend the 2020 Kentucky State Fair. “The Kentucky State Fair has addressed and overcome many challenges in its storied history. The Kentucky State Fair Board carefully considered the public's concerns regarding health and safety and realized ...   [read more]
