Hi Candy Fans,
We have been working hard behind the scenes to plan for new measures to provide a clean, safe, and healthy environment for all visitors and employees as we look to complete a phased re-opening.
Here at Candytopia, the safety of our visitors and employees is our number one priority. Based on guidance from health authorities and government agencies, we will be implementing current health and safety measures for your visit to provide you with the safest experience possible.
We recognize that there are differing opinions at every level on how to best take care of our communities. There is no single right answer here—and possibly no way to reconcile the wide variety of every guest’s needs, desires, and expectations. While we understand some people may feel certain measures are overcautious, we hope you agree with our decision to err on the side of safety.
✨Before you visit, here is what we’re doing to keep you safe ✨
• We’ve increased cleaning and disinfection procedures and hand sanitizer stations will be available throughout the exhibit including the beginning and end of the experience. We encourage guests to use these regularly.
• Regular sanitizing and cleaning will be conducted by staff frequently including door handles and commonly used areas. This will be performed between group time slots.
• All guests 4 years of age and older, along with our team members will be required to wear an appropriate face covering for the duration of your visit in markets where local municipalities are requiring it. Guests will be required to bring their own face coverings. In markets where local municipalities are not requiring, Candytopia does still recommend guests wear face coverings, and will require it of our staff.
• If you are sick, we ask you to please stay home. We will happily transfer your tickets to a later date. Contact our lovely team at firstname.lastname@example.org to reschedule. Notice must be provided prior to your ticketed time.
• Staff will no longer be allowed to handle a guest’s phone or credit card, nor will we be handing tablets to guests. Any signature pads will be sanitized between guests.
• All employees will receive training based on current CDC COVID-19 safety and sanitation protocols. They will also receive temperature checks prior to commencing each shift and will be required to wear a mask.
• Modifications have been made to some exhibits to ensure the safety of our guests and employees.
The above health and safety policies and procedures have been implemented for the benefit of all Candytopia guests and staff. However, exposure to, or the increased possibility of contracting or spreading the COVID-19 virus are inherent risks in your participation in Candytopia or any public place where other people are present. Further details regarding these risks, and your knowing and voluntary assumption of all risks connected with the Candytopia experience, are detailed in Candytopia’s Guest Liability Waiver, to which you agree upon purchasing a ticket or entering Candytopia, and which may be accessed online at https://www.candytopia.com/liability-waivers.
We’re looking forward to welcoming you back soon. If you have any questions, thoughts or feedback, we’d love to hear from you 💕 Please contact our lovely team at email@example.com.
Love and Lollipops,
The Candytopia Team
