CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2021–2022 REGULAR SESSION
Introduced by Assembly Members Quirk-Silva and Valladares
February 04, 2021
An act relating to public health.
LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST
AB 420, as introduced, Quirk-Silva. Public health: amusement parks and COVID-19.
Existing law, the California Emergency Services Act, authorizes the Governor to declare a state of emergency during conditions of disaster or extreme peril to persons or property, including epidemics. Pursuant to this authority, on March 4, 2020, the Governor declared a state of emergency relating to the novel coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. On August 28, 2020, the executive branch implemented a 4-tier “Blueprint for a Safer Economy,” which identifies a county’s COVID-19 risk level for business operations on a scale from widespread risk to minimal risk. On October 20, 2020, the State Department of Public Health and the Division of Occupational Safety and Health issued a guidance document, “COVID-19 INDUSTRY GUIDANCE: Amusement Parks and Theme Parks,” which authorizes a small amusement park to operate at limited capacity when its county is in the moderate tier, and authorizes any other amusement park to operate at 25% capacity when its county is in the minimal tier.
This bill would express the intent of the Legislature that the executive branch adjust the “COVID-19 INDUSTRY GUIDANCE: Amusement Parks and Theme Parks” document and place all amusement parks, regardless of size, within the moderate risk tier, rather than the minimal risk tier. The bill would also make related findings and declarations.
Vote: MAJORITY Appropriation: NO Fiscal Committee: NO Local Program: NO
The people of the State of California do enact as follows:
SECTION 1. The Legislature finds and declares all of the following:
(a) The prolonged COVID-19-related closures of California’s amusement parks are having devastating impacts on tens of thousands of furloughed and laid off amusement park employees, the businesses and communities surrounding amusement parks, and the local governments dependent on the parks.
(b) While dealing with the public health crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic remains paramount, grave concerns related to personal financial health, as well as physical, mental, and behavioral health, have arisen as a result of the amusement park closures.
(c) California’s amusement parks, large and small, are a vital sector in California’s economy. In 2018, the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions estimated that California’s amusement parks support more than 143,000 jobs statewide and provide over $2.7 billion in annual employee compensation.
(d) California’s amusement parks contribute heavily to the economic stability of state and local governments, generating $12.6 billion in direct and indirect revenue impact to the state and paying approximately $1.5 billion annually in federal, state, and local taxes.
(e) At the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020, California’s amusement parks voluntarily closed and immediately began consulting industry and health experts to develop comprehensive reopening plans consisting of reduced capacity, physical distancing and face covering requirements, robust health and safety protocols for employees and guests, heightened sanitation processes, physical and operational modifications, and enhanced signage throughout their parks.
(f) Amusement parks in other states and in other countries have successfully reopened and currently there are no known COVID-19 outbreaks that have been traced back to the parks. As noted in the New York Times, “At Disney World, ‘Worst Fears’ About Virus Have Not Come True: Attendance has been low since the July reopening, but health officials and worker unions also say safety protocols have kept the coronavirus at bay.”
(g) Public health officials in California and in other states consistently cite household gatherings, household transmissions, and congregate settings as being primary sources of outbreaks, but none have presented scientific evidence or data pointing to amusement parks as an activity bearing a high risk of transmission.
(h) The executive branch released its “Blueprint for a Safer Economy” on August 28, 2020, inclusive of the four-tier system for counties, and subsequently released the guidance document for amusement and theme parks on October 20, 2020.
(i) Within the Blueprint, many activities similar to amusement parks, such as museums, zoos, aquariums, family entertainment centers, outdoor recreation, and outdoor malls are allowed to reopen in varying degrees within the first three tiers. However, the executive branch placed California’s larger amusement parks in Yellow – Minimal – Tier 4, indicative of minimal spread of COVID-19 and characterized as the least restrictive tier under which “most indoor business operations are open with modifications.”
(j) Certain other activities with fewer controls and bearing greater risk of COVID-19 transmission either lack restrictions or are allowed to reopen ahead of amusement parks, such as beaches, state parks, indoor malls, card rooms and racetracks, and professional sporting events at stadiums with live audiences.
(k) Amusement parks can provide a safer environment for families and individuals to spend leisure time than many other places that are operating without the same degree of crowd control, physical distancing, and safety protocols.
(l) California’s amusement parks have historically made guest and employee health, safety, and satisfaction top priorities. They are controlled environments operating primarily outdoors. Amusement parks are in the business of moving people and can do so in a way that monitors physical distancing. Exposure time is limited at amusement parks, given guest movement and that an amusement park is able to adjust its capacity in real time to allow for appropriate distancing throughout the property.
(m) California state health officials are unable to provide projections for counties that are home to California’s amusement parks to reach Yellow – Minimal – Tier 4 and the state’s amusement parks have not been provided a reasonable timeline for resuming operations.
SEC. 2. It is the intent of the Legislature that the executive branch do both of the following:
(a) Adjust the “COVID-19 INDUSTRY GUIDANCE: Amusement Parks and Theme Parks” issued on October 20, 2020.
(b) Place all amusement parks, regardless of size, within “Orange – Moderate – Tier 3” instead of in “Yellow – Minimal – Tier 4.”
$SIX reopening date of May 22, 2021
California’s Great America became the first theme park in California to target a 2021 reopening date after remaining closed for the entire 2020 season due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Santa Clara amusement park has set a target reopening date of May 22, according to an announcement from the park.
“Our scheduled opening date is May 22,” California’s Great America officials said via email. “We continue to monitor state guidelines and work with industry and government officials to ensure our reopening plans meet all required health and safety regulations.”
California theme parks are not expected to reopen until spring or summer under COVID-19 health and safety reopening guidelines issued by the state. Large theme parks like California’s Great America can reopen once the counties they reside in reach the least-restrictive yellow/minimal tier 4 risk level of Gov. Gavin Newsom’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy.
Cedar Fair, the parent company of California’s Great America, also announced 2021 reopening dates for Ohio’s Kings Island (May 8), Ohio’s Cedar Point and Canada’s Wonderland (May 14), North Carolina’s Carowinds, Virginia’s Kings Dominion, Pennsylvania’s Dorney Park, Missouri’s Worlds of Fun and Minnesota’s Valleyfair (May 22) and Michigan’s Adventure (May 29), according to Theme Park Insider.
A reopening date was not announced for Knott’s Berry Farm, Cedar Fair’s most-attended and only year-round theme park. The Buena Park theme park was forced to cancel the Taste of Merry Farm food and shopping event in early December due to the state’s stay at home order. A new Knott’s food event is expected to be announced soon.
In August, California’s Great America became the first amusement park in California to give up on reopening in 2020 and close for the year as state officials put off issuing COVID-19 protocols for safely reopening theme parks.
California theme parks stopped setting and resetting reopening dates after it became clear the global pandemic would extend for months and stretch into 2021.
$SIX Amusement Parks Global Market Report 2021: COVID 19 Impact and Recovery to 2030
Major companies in the amusement parks market include Disney Parks and Resorts; Merlin Entertainment; Universal Studios; Six Flags Entertainment and Oct parks China.
The global amusement parks market is expected to grow from $51.67 billion in 2020 to $63.89 billion in 2021 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 23.7%. The growth is mainly due to the companies rearranging their operations and recovering from the COVID-19 impact, which had earlier led to restrictive containment measures involving social distancing, remote working, and the closure of commercial activities that resulted in operational challenges. The market is expected to reach $89.17 billion in 2025 at a CAGR of 9%.
The amusement parks and arcades market consists of sales of amusement parks and arcades entertainments and related goods by entities (organizations, sole traders and partnerships) that operate amusement parks and arcades. The amusement parks and arcades market also includes sales of amusement arcades such as family fun centres, pinball arcades and amusement device parlors. This market includes sales of entry fees and ticket sales for rides, games, food and beverages, merchandise goods, and hotels and resorts. However, this market excludes sales of exclusive restaurants such as fast food chains operating within the amusement parks. Amusement and theme park companies operate mechanical rides, water rides, water games (includes both spectator sports and crowd engagement games), events, games, shows, themed exhibits, refreshment stands and other visitor attractions for entertainment. The amusement parks market is segmented into theme parks; water parks and amusement arcades.
North America was the largest region in the global amusement parks market, accounting for 33% of the market in 2020. Asia Pacific was the second largest region accounting for 30% of the global amusement parks market. Africa was the smallest region in the global amusement parks market.
Amusement parks are increasingly using virtual and augmented reality technology to enhance customer experience. Virtual reality is a 3D, computer generated environment which can interact with a person, whereas augmented reality turns an environment into a digital interface by placing virtual objects in the real world. Amusement parks are implementing this technology in rides and theater-based attractions. For instance, Plopsaland De Panne in De Panne, Belgium has a new virtual reality wooden roller coaster called Heidi the Ride, which can reach speeds of more than 43 mph. Amusement park SeaWorld has started operating a new Kraken Virtual Reality Roller Coaster in Orlando. The Weave Breaker coaster brings the reality of jet skiing in an amusement park. Universal Studios have The Walking Dead mazes with augmented reality elements.
Coronavirus Pandemic: The outbreak of Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has acted as a massive restraint on the amusement parks market in 2020 as governments globally imposed lockdowns and restricted domestic and international travel limiting the need for services offered by these establishments. COVID 19 is an infectious disease with flu-like symptoms including fever, cough, and difficulty in breathing. The virus was first identified in 2019 in Wuhan, Hubei province of the People’s Republic of China and spread globally including Western Europe, North America and Asia. Steps by national governments to contain the transmission have resulted in closure of recreational facilities such as amusement parks with countries entering a state of ’lock down’ and the outbreak is expected to continue to have a negative impact on businesses throughout 2020 and into 2021. However, it is expected that the amusement parks market will recover from the shock across the forecast period as it is a ’black swan’ event and not related to ongoing or fundamental weaknesses in the market or the global economy.
Increasing Use Of Social Media: Increasing use of social media and access to mass media is positively influencing the amusement parks market. Visitors in amusements facilities such as amusement parks like sharing their experiences, photographs and videos on social media platforms which helps other people know the experiences offered by the amusement parks. According to a study conducted by Visa, a cards and payments company, 73% of Asians check-in online while on a holiday and as many as 71% people share their experiences on social media sites. Social media is the most effective marketing tool for amusements parks to acquire new customers. Extensive use of social media is expected to drive the amusement parks market going forward.

$SIX then I guess you haven't read...
Six Flags Entertainment (NYSE:SIX) had its price objective lifted by analysts at B. Riley from $27.00 to $41.00 in a research note issued on Friday, The Fly reports. The firm presently has a "buy" rating on the stock. B. Riley's price objective would indicate a potential upside of 38.05% from the company's previous close.
Keep in mind this stock is heavily institutional invested... they are not going to let this slip away. Their break-even point is $35 and they have been sitting on that buy the whole year so expect so serious upside.
sorry, but this move up to $30s really makes no sense, sub $15 makes no sense either. should be $16-$20 stock at best until there is a true re-opening with vaccine
just my opinion
$SIX up on vaccine news
