California Attractions and Parks Association is the only statewide association that represents the permanent amusement park industry. The association was incorporated in 2003 and opened offices in Sacramento in February 2004.
CAPA serves as the voice of the attractions and amusement industry, working closely with legislators and regulators on issues of regulation, tourism, and ride safety.
CAPA is also the industry's information source, providing updates on ride inspections, reporting requirements, and legislation that has the potential to impact our industry.
Sign the letter and let Governor Gavin Newson know that California parks are ready to reopen responsibly.
Subject: Please reopen California’s amusement parks!
Dear Governor Newsom,
Please reopen California’s amusement parks! From Disneyland to Knott’s Berry Farm to Universal Studios, LEGOLAND, and Magic Mountain – we all have fond memories of family visits to these iconic parks. Governor, we urge you to use the science and data to allow these parks to open now. Besides offering Californians a safe and fun outdoor activity during these bleak COVID-19 days, these parks directly employ tens of thousands of people and entire communities have been built around them. The amusement park employees, surrounding small businesses and all their employees, local governments, and loyal guests all depend on these parks being open.
Throughout the world, amusement parks have successfully reopened and there are no known COVID-19 outbreaks being traced back to parks. These parks put the health and safety of both their employees and guests as a top priority and we’re confident that they can reopen safely as they have proven in so many other states and countries.
Even more than the lost jobs and lost revenue, however, the greatest impact is truly the loss of hope, joy, laughter, and fun. That damage is the most painful of all. Our leaders, from the Governor to local officials, have the power to continue to protect our health while giving us back our sense of hope, and allow us to enjoy wholesome, outdoor fun.
Californians need jobs, businesses need customers, local governments need revenue and most importantly, we all need hope. Please stop delaying and please allow California’s amusement parks to reopen soon! We know they are ready and so are we!
