This Theme-Park Wants You To Quit Screaming When Riding Roller Coasters To Limit COVID-19 Infection

In this video, you will see two executives of the Fuji-Q Highland amusement park ride the roller coaster without screaming. They want you to do the same.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we face new challenges and have to adapt to new routines, a new kind of “normal.” However, one of the biggest challenges must be suppressing your emotions when you need to express it the most. If you have no idea what we’re talking about, check this out: Theme-park associations in Japan are telling those riding roller-coaster. As reported by The Wall Street Journal, they fear that screaming may spread infected droplets.

In a four-minute video, you will see two executives of the Fuji-Q Highland amusement park, Koichiro Horiuchi and Daisuke Iwata, dressing properly and wearing masks as they’re riding the Fujiyama coaster at the park. This roller can reach a speed of 128 kilometers per hour.

The executives are showing their calm on the roller coaster with one of them adjusting mask and hair. Their hands are pressing tightly on the safety bars while their bodies shake back and forth in correspondence with the up and down movement of the coaster. But importantly, they are quiet from the beginning till the end.

At the end of the video, there is a funny message saying: “Please scream inside your heart.

While these guys are trying to spread a safety message, not everyone will be able to keep calm like they do. Humans always have the urge to express their feelings and with the extreme scare when riding a roller coaster, not many of us can swallow the scream back to our stomachs.
