CA Amusement Park Patrons Told Not To Scream On Roller Coasters

California is a hotbed of theme parks, but if you think you’re going to sit and scream on roller coasters – think again.

The parks in Cali are set to open on April 1st, but there will be many strict health and safety regulations that park patrons will have to follow, including avoiding screaming, which could spread the COVID-19 virus.

In new guidelines outlined in its “Responsible Reopening Plan,” the California Attractions and Parks Association (CAPA) advises theme park visitors to avoid activities that increase the spread of COVID-19, such as singing, shouting, heavy breathing and raising one’s voice.

Yelling or screaming on a roller coasters counts very much as “raising one’s voice.”

Japan put a no-screaming rule in place when it began reopening its amusement parks back in July of 2020. At the time they opened, “The Fuji-Q Highland amusement park” just outside Tokyo got attention for telling roller coaster riders to “please scream inside your heart.”

Not being able to be vocal on theme park rides is one of the most foolish rules they have ever tried to put into place, and yet too many violations could get you asked to leave the park.

It sounds legit enough that they would throw people out for screaming too much, but how they regulate it all and how they will force people to leave the park are truly going to be something to monitor.

  1. Why? What’s the concern? Some are likely the same people protesting, rioting and shouting protest chants for hours at the top of their lungs in 2020. Wasn’t a problem then.

    • Don’t you know you can’t get the coronavirus or spread it if you gather in large groups for radical left wing protests or celebrations? This virus knows not to infect radical leftits. It’s the most intelligent virus ever.

  2. It’s not just California. I was at Sea World in San Antonio a couple days ago and a dad in front of me got accosted by a teenage worker on a ride for not having his mask fully over his face. It was 80+ degrees and the guy was taking a breather. He put it on his face after a few complaints but the staff actually called security on him. I was expecting Texas to be more relaxed on the mask crap but it’s as bad in San Antonio as anywhere. I also had someone drive by yelling at me calling me a “colonizer” with some flowery language sprinkled in while my family and I were waiting on the sidewalk to grab coffee. Ironically, he was driving a nice Chevy SUV. Strange people in strange times.

  3. My favorite are the radical mask wearers. So frightened of this disease yet willing to go out to eat and risk their lives for a fucking hamburger, a vacation, or a night on the town. People wearing masks at their tables in restaurants. If u think its that dangerous, stay the fuck home.

  4. If you’re dining inside at the French Laundry with Gayvin Newsom, fuck the masks and the outdoor dining. This has nothing to do with science or their fake pandemic — it’s about communist control of everything you do. It won’t end until these motherfuckers are swinging from the gallows….
