QUEENSBURY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Earlier this week, the office of Gov. Andrew Cuomo released guidance allowing amusement parks and summer camps to open with COVID-19 precautions in place. On Friday, The Great Escape announced plans to open the gates and let visitors in this summer.
The park will open for weekends and select dates starting on May 1, followed by full-time on June 24. The park will be limited to one-third capacity, with staggered seating in rides. The plan is to fire around 1,500 employees, at job fairs starting online on March 13.
