The criteria determined for the opening of theme parks, which have been closed for a year in the USA, were announced by the California Travel and Parks Association (CAPA).
The statement ‘limiting shouting and deep breathing’ in the item “restriction of activities” included in the criteria was confusing.
In the statement made on the reopening criteria, the statement to limit ‘shouting and deep breathing’ took place in the press as a ban on yelling, especially on roller coasters.
CAPA stated that they did not impose such a ban on their social media account against the statement perceived as a ban on shouting on roller coasters in the US press. Social media users who could not understand the ban criticized CAPA for how to limit the activity.
HOW WILL THE YELLOW ACTIVITY BE LIMITED?
The item misunderstood by the public in CAPA’s release of the opening criteria, went viral on social media on how to limit visitors’ shouting on recreational vehicles such as roller coaster.
THEME PARKS OPEN ON NISAN 1
CAPA’s members include world-famous Disneyland, Six Flags and Legoland theme parks.
On the other hand, California Governor Gavin Newsom announced that theme parks in the state of California will open from April 1.
JAPAN IS IMPLEMENTING THE YELLOW BAN SINCE 2020
Since July 2020, a ‘no shout ban’ has been used in theme parks in Japan. Visitors to Fuji-Q Highland in the capital city of Tokyo stated that the theme park officials gave them advice like “Shout out”. Park managers completed the tour without shouting by riding the speed train that can reach 120 kilometers per hour to represent an example. Those moments were shared by Fuji-Q Highland on social media.
