A message from Alessandro Zamperla President and CEO of Central Amusement International Inc.
Good news, New Yorkers are demonstrating their strength and resilience in the most difficult of times and it’s paying off. With continued decreases in the infection and hospitalization rates, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced that beginning Friday, April 9, outdoor amusement parks can reopen with a 33 percent capacity limit and additional safety measures in place.
Like all of you, I’m thrilled to hear the news and I cannot wait to share laughter and joy with all of our amazing guests and team members. The health and safety of our guests and team members is always our primary focus, and we are happy to continue working with our government and health officials to ensure that when we open Luna Park in Coney Island, we will create enjoyable memorable experiences for everyone in a safe and fun environment.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, we have been building on the many existing safety measures at our amusement park and will be implementing public health protocols according to CDC and health agencies’ guidelines to maximize the protection of our guests and team members. We are thankful for the decreases in the infection and hospitalization rates, and we are hopeful for additional encouraging news as more vaccinations take place.
We are excited to reopen in 2021 with 6 new attractions geared towards our youngest guests and to continue the Coney Island tradition of seaside thrills and fun!
We thank you for your continued loyalty, patience, and understanding. We remain optimistic navigating this challenging time with COVID-19, as we know the resilience of New Yorkers, Brooklynites, and Coney Islanders.
Above all else, please continue to take the necessary precautions to mitigate this pandemic and stay healthy. On behalf of our entire team, we cannot wait to welcome you back to Luna Park in Coney Island.
