COVID-19 Safety Measures

COVID-19 has made this a very challenging year for most of the experiences providers they are partnered with, but they have worked hard and been innovative in adapting their experiences to be as safe as possible for both the public and their employees.

They have added the safety steps the experiences providers have adapted to their tour pages to add some reassurance and comfort when you are buying a fun experience for someone special or for yourself to get out and about.

The experience that are open and available are experiences that do not involve crowding together. Each company has adapted their activities to keep people as distanced as much as possible. Often tours and activities are limited to your covid bubble within the immediate area, along with staff sanitizing and being vetted daily for symptoms. During the summer, experiences like Hot Air Balloon rides and racing cars were popular gifts as people ventured out and about.
