Covid-19 Safety Procedures

The health and safety of our guests is our top priority. We have implemented many measures that you will see on the midway which are each designed to protect guests and employees from potential exposure to SARS-CoV-2. By minimizing contacts, promoting social distancing and increasing cleaning protocols and sanitization, we can welcome our guests back to the midway experience that has created generations of memories.

Our rules and procedures include the best elements of mitigation plans from amusement parks, carnivals, fairs, and festivals as well as guidance from the CDC and state/local health organizations. Coupled with our own ideas and innovations, we can bring the best this industry has to offer.

As new information becomes available, we will adjust this document to reflect the best practices given with the most up to date information. While the midways experience will change, and it will not be the “same as always”, we believe we can strike a prudent balance between safety and family fun if we all work together to provide a safe, healthy environment.

Our SARS CoV(2) Health and Safety Plan highlights are included below:

MIDWAY RIDE OPERATIONS & CLEANING [Specific to certain fairs/festivals]
Our midway now features less attractions, freeing up more space for social distancing.
Specific rides will be showcased with social distancing and contact points in mind.
Touchless hand sanitizing areas will be introduced throughout the fair, giving ample opportunity for hygiene practices.
Sanitizing wipes will be provided at each ride and attraction. Each guest can use their wipe to sanitize their personal space as an added measure of protection.
Queue lines for rides, games, and food stands will include markers spaced 6ft apart for distancing to be maintained. Queue lines on rides will have “pre-grouping” to minimize contact with others not included in the same party.
We will load rides and attractions to facilitate social distancing which may include leaving rows and cars empty between guests.
Cleaning teams will be used to disinfect high traffic areas.
