What are amusement parks doing to keep my family safe?
Looking to our neighbors in New Jersey,Six Flags Great Adventure is opening with new safety guidelines, including reduced attendance levels and extensive new safety and hygiene protocols. Some New York parks are making similar plans, includingThe Great Escape & Splashwater Kingdom, with requirements like advance reservations, face masks, non-invasive temperature checks, and social distancing.

What can my family do to stay safe when visiting amusement parks?Bring everything with you.
It’s better to bring items with you than to have to purchase them when you’re out and about, says Giuseppe Aragona, M.D., general practitioner and medical advisor atPrescription Doctor. This includes hand wipes and hand gels to clean your hands and other surfaces frequently, food and drinks, extra clothes, diapers, and anything your family tends to need when you’re away from home. Try to pack your items in disposable containers so you can throw everything away at the end of your visit and won’t bring home any potential contamination.
Check ahead of time
Before visiting any amusement park, be sure to check the website and social media pages for updated COVID-related policies. Be prepared to make timely reservations, pack masks, and talk to your kids about proper social distancing. Then try to verify if there is a restriction on the number of people permitted to enter the park on any given day, says Leann Poston M.D., M.B.A., M.Ed., ofInvigor Medical. You’ll want to visit parks that are imposing restrictions on capacity, for everyone’s safety.
Prepare the kids.
This amusement park visit won’t be exactly like other park trips have been in the past, so you want to lay that out for your kids. Explain to them what they will and will not be allowed to do, chat about social distancing, and then make sure their masks fit well.
