This just beggars belief. Fine open the parks but how can you possibly expect people to wear masks? Presumably this will be mandatory for all rides. I reckon within 1 day someone will claim to have choked themselves or be suing the park because they suffered huge distress when their mask was pushed into their eyes?. In such a litigious country it will be open season for Lawyers

Surely screaming on a rollercoaster is a reflex? They can't stop that.

You could always soil yourself instead, make sure not to wear white pants though.

I saw on an American site that apparently it also included singing, screaming, loud voices, and heavy breathing....

Sounds like a miserable experience for children if you ask me

Like the SNP banning music in pubs and restaurants so nobody could sing along ......

Why would anyone go while restrictions are still in place? Doesn’t sound like a pleasant experience at all - wearing masks, temperature checks, limited attendance, not being able to scream or laugh (?!).

The sooner we get this whole pandemic mess over with and return to true normal - not ‘relative’ normal, not ‘new’ normal, just back to how life was before 2020 - the better.

Kind of agree but would be quite happy to lose some of the pre Covid "normal" of mega queues, being bunched together closely and the expectation on us all that you have to go out to enjoy yourself.

You would have to be stupid to go to a Disney park with or without a pandemic. Disney represents the most disgusting side of commercialism.

If you read trip advisor, the queue lengths being short are not equating to short waits, they are loading rides very empty and going that much slower.

I would always regard a disney trip as a greater threat to my health that Covid ever is/was.

I'm afraid I won't be going for a long time. I planned to go in 2020 but until the experience is normal it just won't be worth it. I do hope they and airlines don't interpret the massive drop in business as covid fears, it is simply not wanting to experience covid obsessions and processes, it is my holiday, not my duty. I feel that way about most entertainment services at the moment.

"And an industry trade group has advised against potentially risky activities - like screaming on rides."

Telling someone not to scream on a scary ride is like banning someone saying "ow" when dropping a brick on their foot.

Yeah because they don't want people screaming when Mickey Mouse picks their pockets.

Went to Paulton's, Chessington, Legoland & Thorpe Park during restrictions last year. Son didn't have to wear a mask on the rides but I did, he screamed, I didn't. I even have 1 picture as it was his first time on Vampire.
All pools, play areas, everything was closed. It saw us through the first wave happily. Already booked up for April.
Not the greatest experience for me, but son loved it!

The onl6 time I screamed was at the ticket counter. One day pass for a family of four was more than my airfare.

Must be a quiet news day if HYS is talking American theme parks. I am waiting for the "Alex Salmond inquiry says Nicola Sturgeon misled committee" to open up for comments; far more important! Removed

I get that people want a Conservative Government and will vote for them even if the candidate were an old sock with buttons for eyes, but having won an election then the role of voters is to hold the government to account.

Brexit, Austerity, Covid mismanagement and increased borrowing are all the fault of our Government and they should be criticised for it.
