3:12 pm
>> but it is what it is. we've got to deal deal with it and do a weekend. it's a little discriminatory. i think it's more of its someone just really doesn't feel like that's what they want for it. >> then they're not allowed in there now. >> alright, just to go over what marine it's going to be talking to us about the giants say they will be assigning ticket holders to zones. they're going to be enforcing social distancing and mask-wearing people have to order food and drinks from their seats. so it's going to be a lot different. but they will be able to actually be in the stadium watching the game in person. the first time that the giants have had fans inside or call in 18 months in the teen says that they've really missed the fans and the energy. so make sure that you join us this saturday night for our spring training reports are director from sports. jason dumas says going to give us an in-depth look at the a's and giants rosters and can expect from the teams this season. you can check it out. the giants previews at 10:00pm followed immediately by

3:17 pm
quarantine cobwebs let's take a look here of the park is a calling. this a soft opening today, ok, they've been open for a while for several weeks foot traffic into some retail and at the food court cetera. but today they've open now to 25% of capacity. i can't tell you exactly how many people that is because the boardwalk does not disclose a attendance figures. but i'll tell you a pretty good crowd here today. and i hesitate to use the word crowd because even though the parking lot is full here. a lot of these people are headed for the beach with the boardwalk in between. so they're making pit stops back and forth. but we know roughly a dozen or so rides are open. the giant dipper, the little dipper, the typhoon, the pirate ship among that will be a changing on a day-to-day basis. will shut down periodically to sanitize those rides. masks are required here people are doing a fairly good job of social distancing, although as you can imagine, you know, when you're standing in line for tickets are for one of those, right. it gets a little difficult to keep a 5 feet between or 60 rather
3:18 pm
between you and in the person next to you. but let's hear more on how all this works. now from boardwalk spokesperson chris reyes. there's a whole host of safety protocols designed to protect not only our guests but our employees obviously the most notable invisible is that guests are required to wear masks at all times, including while riding rides. >> we have social and physical distancing markers all throughout the park. and we also have capacity controls to ensure that we don't go over the 25% capacity limit that the state has set up. we also are closing the rides that are running intermittently throughout the day to add an additional layer of cleaning and sanitizing to the right. so guests will notice that throughout the day that the rides because temporarily they'll be on a rotating schedule. so they want close at one time will be a very minor inconvenience to ensure everyone stay safe and healthy. >> so this a soft opening is or call. runs like this. the right a dozen or so rise of between 8 and a dozen. they're telling us that will be open
3:19 pm
between now and april 11th. and then after that, they'll go to just weekends only until further notice. they also have a contingency plan just in case there could be pushed back into the red tier. of course everyone is crossing their fingers. that doesn't happen. but again, the boardwalk santa cruz giving folks just a little bit more sense of normalcy open from 11 to 6 and just have more for you coming up on kron 4 news. it's expect you will see you then, rob. thank you. >> also today, 6 flags discovery kingdom in valais. how is reopening the park will be open for exclusive passholders only and then it will open to the general public on saturday, kron 4, sarah stinson has more on the new safety measures in place there. >> 6 flags, discovery kingdom finally reopening with its roller coasters in motion. >> and it is a blast to get out here after a year of doing pretty much nothing. i think we can all use a thrill. >> but before you get on the roller coaster. there's a few safety protocols. you have to

3:21 pm
>> during the visit patients. we can space things out. so that is not a big block of people coming at the samectime he would create a crowd. so we have to select a time to come in that way. we have a flow going and everybody stay socially distanced today and tomorrow season pass holders. >> they are able to get the first chance to ride the rides and then starting on saturday. other people only california residents can come here as well. but you have to reserve a spot online think i'm actually going to go for right now. so send it back to you. >> well, look like sarah had some fun today as we take a live look outside here along the golden gate bridge. we can see it is gorgeous out there right now. weather looking just picture perfect. it's feeling more like summer as we kick off april. but that cooling trend is about to kick in meteorologist mabrisa rodriguez is here now with a look the temperatures. yeah. it's a war going out there just steen. and we're tracking 60's, 70's and yes, even 80's
