Currently, counties in the orange tier permit smaller parks to open with these modifications:

  • Capacity must be limited to 25% of the maximum or 500 people, whichever is less
  • Outdoor attractions only can open
  • Reservations or advance ticket sales required

Rules for Amusement Parks in Red Tier Counties

As of April 1, amusement parks in Red Tier counties can open with the following restrictions:

  • Capacity 15% of maximum
  • Small groups can attend together, a maximum of 10 people or 3 household groups with no intergroup mixing
  • Indoor activities are limited to 15% capacity and have time restrictions
  • No indoor dining permitted
  • In-state visitors only (in some cases in-county visitors only!)
  • Online tickets required

This doesn’t mean that our local amusement parks have to reopen or that they necessarily will, simply that it is allowed in California. They have to deal with not only what’s permitted, but what they can staff.
