Amusement Parks

Phase 4

The Revitalization Phase of the Restore Illinois public health approach to reopening the Illinois economy includes larger gathering sizes, additional businesses reopening and increased capacities. We must all continue to social distance, frequently wash our hands and cover our faces to maintain progress in overcoming COVID-19.

The following documents apply to businesses that meet the following criteria:

  • Customer-facing amusement parks primarily engaged in providing outdoor and indoor recreational and amusement services (e.g., roller coaster rides)
    • Examples of amusement parks include (non-exhaustive): roller coaster parks, traveling carnivals
    • Water parks and recreational swimming will be allowed to reopen in accordance with Swimming Facilities guidance
  • Note: organizations that operate across multiple workplace environments should refer to applicable Phase IV guidelines for guidance on those workplaces
  • Note: As of release, amusement parks should operate at no more than 25% capacity. Capacity restrictions and group sizes will be reassessed based on the latest science and public health metrics on an ongoing basis throughout Phase IV
  • Note: All amusement rides and attractions covered by the Amusement Ride Attraction and Safety Act must be inspected and issued a permit to operate by the Illinois Department of Labor before opening for public use and enjoyment
