Portions of Icon Park reopen with new safety protocols

ORLANDO, Fla. — A few iconic Central Florida attractions are starting to reopen, with new protocols in place.

At Icon Park, restaurants have been open since last Monday. And on Friday, Sea Life and Madame Tussaud’s reopened their doors.


Distance markers have been placed on the floor, and sanitizing stations have been set up throughout the premises.

At the aquarium and museum, you don’t need a mask, but must follow social distancing signs.

The observation wheel, however, remains closed, and no reopening date has been set.

When it does open, every party will have their own capsule, and it will be wiped down after every ride, said Icon Park officials.

Gov. Ron DeSantis said amusement parks and attractions must get their proposals for reopening approved by government officials, and then they can be sent to the state for review.
