Gardaland is open again G

Vigevani, CEO of Gardaland.

Gardaland re-opened on 13th June, making it the first Italian amusement park to re-open after the lockdown period. “We are very happy to be back welcoming our visitors,” said Aldo Maria “Our motto this year will be Fun with Safety.

One of the features of this season will be the limited entrance numbers to

the park. “We have set a maximum daily number of around 10,000 people,” explained Vigevani. “Obviously this will mean a reduction in our usual visitor numbers, but we are feeling positive about this season; in addition, we have recently introduced an online booking service and the initial feedback is very satisfactory. Gardaland’s objective in developing and introducing enhanced health and

safety measures remains that of guaranteeing visitors a fun and engaging day at the park: this is why, for example, all the markers used for social distancing (floor stickers, safety barriers, notices) are characterised by strong and bright colours, personalised in Gardaland-style. The ‘Gardaland Guidelines’ also include a new online booking system

where visitors must specify the date of their visit as part of the limited admission numbers policy, body temperature scanning for guests and employees before entering the park, compulsory wearing of masks for all visitors over the age of six, and supply of personal protective equipment for employees; regular and ongoing disinfection of common areas and attractions after each ride; the removal of some seats on rides to enable

social distancing. One important innovation that aids social distancing is the use of new

technologies such as apps to book the attractions. This allows the use of ‘virtual queueing’, which reduces ‘physical’ waiting time in queues and potential crowding. With the QODA app it is also possible to book your table at the park’s restaurants. Gardaland has introduced two new outdoor shows for the 2020 season

the 44 Gatti Rock Show, staged twice a day outside in the Arena, followed by a special ‘Meet & Greet’ session. For an all-round experience, it’s also possible to stay in the two 44 Cats-themed bedrooms in Gardaland Hotel. Meanwhile, in Piazza Ramses, guests can watch the show AquaFantasia –

Storia di acqua, luci e colori. This spectacular display of dancing fountains is repeated each hour. Almost all outdoor attractions (water-based or not) are open and

accessible to visitors. To round off the package of fun in safety, it is also possible to stay at

Gardaland Hotel and Gardaland Adventure Hotel. As in the Park, the Safety Guidelines guarantee a stay in total safety thanks to the use of personal protective equipment, disinfection and recommended social distancing. All premises are sanitised with certified products, and a final ozone treatment is performed in each room. At the themed Tutankhamon Restaurant, the service has been modified

to guarantee safe and pleasant dining. You can have breakfast, lunch and dinner only with reservation.

Providing the public with a safe outdoor adventure

Jungle Island, Miami’s popular outdoor eco-adventure attraction, re-opened to the public on 25 June in accordance with CDC recommendations, IAAPA guidelines and Miami-Dade County’s “New Normal” handbook. After being quarantined for over three months, families and guests were invited to connect with nature and wildlife, enjoy fun, educational animal exhibits and shows, play at the new TreeWalk Village, adventure playground and much more. We have completely redefined our guest experience, but our guests will

still enjoy everything they love so much about Jungle Island and more,” said Curtis Crider, Jungle Island’s president and managing director.
