Safety Measures

A Safe Experience For You

Upon entering Ripley’s Attraction, you will immediately notice changes—from the precisely placed social distancing markers in line to reduced contact. Our staff has also been extensively educated to provide you with a safe experience.

The following has been implemented at Ripley’s Believe It or Not! San Francisco to guarantee a healthy and safe visit to our facility:

  • A limited building and gallery capacity—allowing only 107 guests in the Attraction at a time, versus our 429 building capacity.
  • Temporary closure of high-touch interactive exhibits.
  • Strongly encouraging cashless transactions.
  • The implementation of hourly disinfecting schedules—designating a team member exclusively to this, as well as social distancing enforcement in our galleries, each shift.
  • Hand sanitizer stations have been placed throughout the facility. Guests will be asked to use hand sanitizer as they enter our ticketing gates, enforced by a team member.
  • Social distancing and one-way flow sticker decal reminders have been placed on the floor of every gallery.
  • Acrylic shields have been installed at our ticketing counters.
  • Guest and team member handwashing signs have been placed throughout the facility.
  • Required temperature checks are required for each team member upon entering the facility.

We are doing our part; please do your part:

  • If you or any member of your party is not feeling well, please plan to come at another time.
  • Face coverings are strongly encouraged. This is for your own protection and the protection of others.
  • Wash hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds throughout your visit. Wash them after coughing or sneezing, before eating, after toilet use, and when hands are visibly dirty. At some Attractions, you may be asked to apply hand sanitizer before, during, and/or after your experience.
  • Follow physical distancing guidelines carefully, maintaining 6 feet (2 meters) of space from others. Households can remain together. This will apply throughout the Attraction including in queue lines, at exhibits, in food and beverage facilities, in show venues and theaters, and in restrooms.
  • To facilitate physical distancing guidelines, Attractions may reduce capacity or close some areas. Please be patient and understanding with these necessary operational changes.
  • If you feel ill once you are at the Attraction, please let an employee know. You and your party may be asked to move to a special area within a facility for further assessment.
  • We have enhanced our already-stringent protocols, considering COVID-19. We apologize if you experience any inconveniences as a result of these procedures.
