Adventure Landing’s Jacksonville Beach location ready to welcome back guests during pandemic

Jacksonville, FL — Assistant General Manager Jeremy Christian told Action News Jax, “As it’s getting closer to school, we’ve gotten a lot more e-mails asking about when we’re going to open.”

Attractions across Florida are facing similar scenarios.

On Wednesday, Walt Disney World and Sea World presented their proposals to reopen during the coronavirus pandemic.

“Florida is an entertainment industry-driven state, so we need to get the entertainment industry back up and running, “ Christian said.

Adventure Landing is set to test the waters on Saturday.

On June 6, leaders plan to allow guests back in the Shipwreck Island Waterpark.

Christian took Action News Jax reporter Beth Rousseau around the property pointing out social distancing markers on the ground, shields at all counters and sanitizing stations.

“We’re going to do 50% capacity, which will be around 600 people in the water park" he said. "And on the inside we’re going to limit it to just around 200.”

Outside, deck chairs are arranged in groups of four, set six feet apart.

At the dry park, according to Christian, some attractions will stay closed until staffing and business returns to normal.

“We’ve put a lot of effort into making sure we’re complying with social distancing,” he said.

Staff will take guests’ temperatures before they’re allowed in the park.

Anyone with a temperature higher than 100.4 degrees won’t be allowed at the attraction.
