But it's a task that theme park creators often take on.

At Universal Orlando Resort, the latest venture into that attraction-making magic came in the form of The Bourne Stuntacular show, which opened last last month at its Universal Studios Florida theme park. The attraction is inspired by the popular Bourne spy series that stars actor Matt Damon.

It's the first major addition at Universal since it reopened its theme parks on June 5 to the public after being shuttered since mid-March due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

“As we officially open this all-new experience, the health and safety of our guests and team members remains our top priority. To ensure proper social distancing, we have implemented new procedures in our indoor theaters, including appropriate spacing between travel parties and assisting our guests with seating and exiting the theater to avoid congestion,” the theme park previously said, in a prepared statement with the officially opening of the show.
