California Attractions and Parks Association Statement on New California State Guidance for Theme Parks

Sacramento, CA – The California Attractions and Parks Association (CAPA) today issued the following statement from Kris Reyes, CAPA Chair and Director of External Affairs, Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk:

“We appreciate the administration’s efforts to provide our industry with the guidelines necessary to safely reopen California’s amusement parks. 

“California amusement parks prioritize health and safety, and we have worked collaboratively with state leaders and health officials at the state and local levels to develop guidelines that will protect employees and guests. We will continue to communicate with state officials about appropriate guest and staff capacities as COVID-19 rates decline.

“Amusement parks are critical economic drivers in our state and local economies and we provide essential jobs for tens of thousands of Californians. We are ready to reopen responsibly and we can’t wait to welcome back our employees and guests.”
