I believe the answer is yes on rides. My son works at SFSTL and is hoping to get a call any day from them. He is not looking forward to working with a facemask either but knows it's better than keeping the park closed.

I am hoping that IF there is no spike within a few weeks of these openings that face masks will become optional for the customers.

Also hoping this means a very similar date for SFSTl and WOF since they must have gotten approval from the state.

Will masks be required while riding the rides as well, or just while on the midways and in the shops? I've been wondering about it because wearing a mask while riding a roller coaster or thrill ride seems impractical (please dont take that the wrong way. I fully support the parks steps towards safety and health).


We've seen people wear masks on giant RMC's so it's certainly possible. No one argues that it's going to be uncomfortable on a hot summer day, but if it's wear a mask or have the parks closed most of us will deal with it.

And they will get soaked and not able to breath through on water rides.

I won't be visiting any park as long as they require a mask.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

^ As someone who'd come from a distance, I'm personally going to wait until Mystic River Falls opens, which would also give the park time to reopen and test out their new measures.

We are leaning towards going on the 13th since not only is it reservation only but season pass only. I'll be sure to report if we do.

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

^I set mine for the 14th for the same reasons. Depending on how things work out I might switch to the following Monday or Tuesday though.

One thing I haven't seen addressed is the usage of refillable mugs. I have some old grandfathered ones that I have used for years which im not sure if I will be able to now.

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

Silver Dollar City has received a ton of backlash on Facebook of guests complaining about the masks. Numerous people have mentioned the masks on water rides, and SDC has said that masks will not be required on the large rides or water rides.

^ Well, somehow, they're going to have to adjust with the masks. However the park defines it's use. :|

Or for the time being, don't come back to the park at all. Simple.

I've worn masks in summer heat and humidity. No thanks. I'll spend my money elsewhere.
