AMUSEMENT PARKS WILL NOT OPEN UNDER LIMITS

Kings Dominion and Busch Gardens Williamsburg will not reopen along with the eases on restrictions on businesses and public gatherings. The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports that the amusement parks say it is not economically feasible to open if only 1,000 people can be allowed in at a time. The state’s Phase 3 reopening plan allows entertainment venues to open at 50% capacity or a maximum of 1,000 people. Kings Dominion spokeswoman Maggie Sellers told the paper that the capacity restriction does not consider the large amount of space the park has to accommodate social distancing protocols.
