Delaware’s iconic Funland amusement park on the Rehoboth boardwalk will be open for rides on Friday, June 10.
The State of Delaware had held back on amusement park rides, due to concerns about Covid-19 spread. Maryland, under pressure from Ocean City businesses, opened its rides earlier in the season.
Some of Funland’s arcade games have been open to customers subject to social distancing restrictions.
The rides will operate with capacity limits under a pass system, at least in the initial phase. Customers will buy a two-day pass at a cost of $20 for unlimited rides.
Masks will be required for those over the age of three and employees will receive temperature checks.
Extensive employee and community testing has been taking place in Rehoboth and the beach area after an outbreak of Covid-19 was detected. The virus was first linked to teens coming to the beach for senior week.
Funland has been in operation since 1962 under the same family ownership. It has been featured in local and national media as an example of a family-friendly traditional boardwalk amusement park.
