The park says new safety measures include limited capacity, pre-entry temperature checks, face coverings, PPE, social distancing and sanitizing stations.
Due to the safety precautions, guests must pre-purchase their tickets online as walk-up sales will not be available. The park will only sell tickets online, and guests are strongly encouraged to RSVP for the day they want to visit.
On Wednesday, the Allegheny County Health Department issued a new two-week order that limits gatherings to no more than 25 people inside and 50 outside.
