When are they going to start the coaster tours again?
Pretty sure it is still 1000Apparently Gov. Northam held a news conference a while ago and "relaxed" the executive order for the Hampton Roads area. I read through the EO but it appears to me the attendance at BGW would still be capped at 1000. Nicole, if you are reading this you are good at parsing his EOs and pulling out information I'm not seeing.. Do you or anybody else interpret the attendance cap differently or is it still 1000?
Distancing would still need to be in effect. Realistically, the thing standing in the way of Entertainment returning is much less gathering restrictions and more “financial investment necessary to serve a small percentage of an already small number of guests to begin with.”In theory, wouldnt thay mean theaters at a local theme park perhaps could go to 250 person capacity as well?
The biggest thing with indoor theaters is the air circulation in the building. If the air isn’t being constantly cleaned then guests are breathing in recirculated air that can be full of virus particles, and no mask will stop that. This opens up superspreader events and a lot of liability for the park.In theory, wouldnt thay mean theaters at a local theme park perhaps could go to 250 person capacity as well?
also if youre going to open up a theater that is going to require more staff both for the entertainers and support staff. I honestly doubt that they would want to go this route with the hard cap at 1k as they want to keep staff as minimal as possible to make moneyThe biggest thing with indoor theaters is the air circulation in the building.

Would work for about half the event where you could theoretically be fine in shorts and a hoody, but the other half would be too cold for everyone involved except maybe ice skaters.But if wanted to do something for Christmas Town, which has always been primarily about shows, they could. Possibly have it in the Royal Palace theater, with every other row blocked off and 3 seats between parties, just like they do it in SeaWorld and Universal.
Wouldn't expect to see them using Royal Palace Theatre based on what I know about their event plans in October and November/December. In fact it seems odd that they would be doing any work to it right now.For what it’s worth there was a lot of work going on at the Royal Palace Theatre. Couldn’t tell you what it was for but there was a small crew working with some wood in front of the state. Stage looked stripped down as well. Only putting this in the thread since I’m assuming that’s the stage they would use (if any) for any shows. Not sure if this is related to the stage manager though.
Not to directly contradict this strongly since I’m not fully versed, but when the park gave my students (I teach a theme park class) a presentation in October of last year, they mentioned that the games were contracted out, so to my understanding this is not necessarily new.So I'm posting this here because it's almost certainly related to Covid-19. In the beginning of the year every SEAS park except BGW contracted out their games management. At the time I was told BGW was excluded because it was the most profitable by a wide margin. Today though I saw that the following was posted. It's for the same company that was contacted to run the games operation at all the other SEAS parks, so it seems that this was an impact of Covid-19.
So if you want to do games at BGW, you can do it without technically working for SEAS.
