Recently, Japan’s theme park, Fuji-Q Highland announced that visitors who will be riding roller coasters at the attraction will need to stay quiet and composed when on the ride.
Shouting or screaming can emit thousands of respiratory particles that can increase the risk of spreading infection like the novel coronavirus. As per the theme park, the ‘no screaming rule’ is meant to stop potential virus-carrying droplets from flying out of your mouth at 80mph.
To show that it’s possible, two executives of the park, donned in formal attire are seen giving a ‘demonstration’ of how visitors can maintain a serious face while “screaming inside their hearts,” according to a message at the end of the video.
