Enchanted Forest Water Safari of Old Forge New York has just received the Green Light to open up for the 2021 summer season.

The news broke on Facebook:

We have the GREEN LIGHT to open this summer! We are beyond thrilled that amusement parks can soon open in NYS. It’s a huge step in the right direction.

Governor Andrew Cuomo announced on Wednesday, February 17th, that indoor family entertainment centers can open up to 25 percent capacity on Friday, March 26th. Of course with social distancing rules and temperature checks put in place.

Amusement parks will be reopening on Friday, April 9 up to 33 percent capacity with tickets sold in advance.

No specific guidance was provided for summer camps, though Cuomo said they can “plan on reopening” in June with COVID-19 testing in place, providing the COVID-19 numbers keep dropping.

Currently, Water Safari has already begun planning to reopen in mid-June. For the 2021 season, they are excited to finally introduce 3 new rides. These rides would have opened last summer, but due to the pandemic the park never opened.
