Visitors To Japanese Theme Parks Will Be Asked Not To Scream To Help Prevent Spread Of Covid-19

Visitors To Japanese Theme Parks Will Be Asked Not To Scream To Help Prevent Spread Of Covid-19

Visitors to theme parks in Japan will be urged not to scream while sitting on a roller coaster due to new health and safety guidelines following the coronavirus pandemic.

If you think of your average response to being on a roller coaster, you'd probably think 'screaming, shouting, yelling' - but all of these things should be avoided, according to the new guidelines from national theme park industry group The East Japan and West Japan Theme Park Associations.

According to CNN, the association represents several major theme parks in the country, including Tokyo Disneyland and Universal Studios Japan.

The new guidelines, given the snappy title Guidelines to Prevent the Spread of Infection of the Novel Coronavirus, will also suggest that visitors should wear protective face masks.

While most of us probably scream our heads off on a roller coaster, the concern is that tiny droplets of saliva could fly from people's mouths and land on either their fellow riders or the seats, presenting a potential risk of infection.

Elsewhere in the guidelines, there are more usual plans such as increasing cleaning and sanitising, social distancing measures and temperature checks.

The rules also recommend wearing face masks, but if there are instances where that isn't possible, for characters and entertainers for example, they should stay at least one metre away from visitors.

Even those who are wearing a mask should try and keep conversations with visitors as short as possible, with one guideline reading: "As a new style of customer service, even when you're wearing a mask, you can use a combination of smiley eyes, hand gestures, etc., to communicate with visitors."

Theme parks in Japan have been closed since February to help stop the spread of the coronavirus, but now some are reopening and welcoming visitors back.

Many of those that are reopening are also introducing their own rules - for example Fuji-Q Highland, based at the foot of Mount Fuji, is only reopening its outdoor rides and attraction and is only allowing visitors from Yamanashi, Nagano, Niigata and Shizuoka.
