Thursday - July 16th, 2020
I finally made it out to the park for the first time this season. I wasn't avoiding GA due to Covid-19, but instead was waiting for some cooler weather where wearing a mask in the summer heat and humidity wouldn't ruin the trip. For me not wearing a mask or not wearing it properly is not an option. Luckily, for the most part, other park-goers felt the same way. There were exceptions but no more than I have seen at other public places.
Seeing the park configured for the new regulations and procedures was odd, but it was clear the GA invested a lot of thought and effort in how to safely conduct business while making a visit as enjoyable for guests as possible. The employees were role models for how guests should interact and how to properly were a mask. Great job GA team!
Below are photos of a trip through the park today with all the new setups and changes.
|The screening process is quick and straight forward including a temperature scan and security check. It is as simple as walking through the two tent structures.|
