Outdoor theme park Magikland in Brgy. Guinhalaran, Silay City, Negros Occidental, will resume operations on Dec. 18, a week after its temporary closure after a park ride attendant tested positive for Covid-19.
Reynaldo Bantug, Magikland president and chief executive officer of Aton Land and Leisure Inc., said yesterday that the swab test results of key employees involved in their contact tracing efforts turned out to be negative for Covid-19.
Bantug said that the operations of Magikland will continue daily from Dec. 18 until January 3 next year, in celebration of the holiday season.
“Rest assured that for everyone’s safety, the theme park is disinfected on a regular basis,” Bantug said, but encouraged patrons to wear masks, observe physical distancing, and wash hands regularly.
The theme park was closed from Dec. 11 to 13 after a park ride attendant was exposed to the virus outside the premises.
But no guests were exposed to the attendant since the employee came in contact with other staff of Magikand during non-operating days, the management said.
It added that the rate on Dec. 18 will be P150 for park entrance and shows, and P520 for all rides, including park entrance and shows. From Dec. 19 to Jan. 3, the park entrance and shows will be charged P250, while for all rides, park entrance and shows, the fee is P520, the management said in an advisory.*
