Since China’s fight against coronavirus started to slow down, theme parks and amusement sites across the country have started to open their doors once more.
Many of the theme parks opening to the public have strict measures in place to prevent further outbreak of the virus. Before being admitted into the park, visitors are required to have their temperature checked and to show their health QR codes and IDs.
Reservations must be made in advance and visitors must wear a mask. Certain theme parks have introduced a no cash rule and payments should be made via mobile payment to maintain a non-contact service.
Shanghai Haichang Ocean Park reopened on March 20 but closed again on March 30 because of Shanghai’s strict policy to counter the coronavirus.
A number of other of Haichang Ocean Parks are reopening, including those in the Qingdao and Yantai, Shandong province. The parks have stringent real-time monitoring in place to control the number of visitors entering the indoor and outdoor areas of the sites.
Shanghai Happy Valley reopened on March 20. During closure, the theme park carried out upgrades, including the maintaining and adjusting of equipment and giving everything a deep clean.
Members of staff have also been trained for non-contact service. Signs have been placed around the park reminding visitors to keep a distance of at least 1.5 metres from each other.
