In a press release, officials said, “Boomers Vista will build upon its longstanding commitment to cleanliness and safety by implementing a series of measures following the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention and best practices within the amusement and attractions industries.”

The following measures will be in place at the Vista facility:

Facility General Manager Garrett Gross said, “The health and safety of our Guests and Team Members continues to be our number one priority as we work to welcome guests back to the Park. We will continue working with our local leaders, health experts and our industry colleagues to ensure best practices are in place at Boomers Vista.”

Gross added, “We will serve our Guests safely and effectively by limiting capacity, verifying all entrants do not have a temperature at or above 100.4° Fahrenheit and are wearing proper facial coverings, and following the CDC’s recommendations on cleaning, social distancing and sanitizing.”
