Water parks can reopen but must limit guests to 25% of the park’s normal operating limits, according to the proclamation. Officials with Hawaiian Falls Waterparks in Roanoke announced that the park will open for the summer season beginning May 29.
“We have taken additional health and safety measures to protect [guests] and our staff,” officials said. “[Guests] must follow all posted instructions while visiting Hawaiian Falls.”
To reduce the risk of COVID-19 exposure for guests, all Hawaiian Falls will ask guests to self-screen and to remain home if they are sick.
Additional precautions include staff screenings; enhanced sanitation during and after park hours; and social distancing at the front gate, park cafes and other areas where lines form, according to the Hawaiian Falls Roanoke website.
“We encourage guests to purchase tickets on hfalls.com to reduce points of contact,” the website says. “When visiting the park, we ask that you pay with debit or credit cards rather than cash.”
Park guests will be provided safe methods to conduct food orders, and face masks will be required for all employees.
The park will operate via “modified slide loading,” and signage will be posted throughout the park to ensure social distancing at restaurants; stores; restrooms; and during activities that create long lines, such as ticket processing and bag checks, the website says.
“We are working closely with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, state, and local authorities to implement procedures for our operations,” officials said.
