BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — The Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk will become the first amusement park in California to reopen Saturday since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Workers spent Friday getting the rides prepped and ready for the weekend.

Admission will cost $25 per person and provide access to a two hour reservation window, which caps at 300 people per session.

For now, only Santa Cruz county residents can go on the rides, but if you live beyond the county's borders, you're not totally out of luck you can enjoy food, games and putt-putt.

Rides will operate on weekends.

All guests who enter the dedicated ride area will have their temperature checked and also undergo a COVID-19 health screening.
