Theme parks in Japan have infamously advised visitors to “scream in their hearts” and not with their mouths out of fears of spreading the coronavirus.
One Japanese theme park has come up with a novel way to allow its visitors to express their feelings – without the need to scream out loud.
Screaming Stickers at the Theme Park
Mitsui Greenland Amusement Park in Arao, Japan has stickers which visitors can attach to their masks.
These come in a variety of designs.
HEADS UP: Esplanade has a new children's festival from the 10 to 14 March. Book your tickets before they sell out.
These cartoonish make it look like visitors are screaming away – so that they can have a befitting look while on the roller coasters – at least from the outside.
Screaming Stickers in Action
The Japan theme park even has videos which shows what it is like to wear the stickers on a roller coaster.
One shows a ride doing a good job at “screaming on the inside” and containing her terror.
Another shows a man who makes grunting noise while riding the roller coaster.
As we watched the videos, couldn’t help but feel as if we are watching the Joker on a ride. What do you think?
