ACTIONS WE’RE TAKING AROUND CORONAVIRUS
At NASCAR SpeedPark, our mission is to provide a safe and wholesome family environment where magical moments become treasured memories. With guidance from the CDC, the state of Tennessee, and other appropriate government and industry recommendations, we are adjusting business operations and taking precautionary health measures. Our intention is to care for our team, our guests, and our community as family, as this is our top priority.
Given the rapidly changing guidance and circumstances, please check back frequently for the most up to date information.
We are taking preventive steps within the park to provide a safe experience for our team members and our guests alike. Your role in protecting yourself, your family, and others is just as important. Please delay your visit to help limit the risk to others:
Anyone with a fever or who is otherwise not feeling well is asked to reschedule your visit until you have been fever and symptom free for at least 24 hours.
Anyone who may have recently traveled to a COVID-19 hotspot or who may have come into contact with anyone suspected of having COVID-19 is asked to reschedule your visit until after recommended quarantine periods have expired.
If you or someone in your care is in any of the high risk groups identified by the CDC as vulnerable to serious complications from the COVID-19, we encourage you to reschedule your visit until you have been fully vaccinated or the risk of you contracting COVID-19 has been reduced to levels appropriate for your circumstances.
To enter the park you will be asked to honor the Sevier County Mask Mandate (see above for requirements and current status) and to participate in a wellness screening. This consists of answering the following questions:
- Have you been in close contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19 in the last 14 days?
- Are you experiencing a cough, shortness of breath, or sore throat, or had a sudden loss of taste or smell?
- Have you had a fever in the last 48 hours?
WHAT WE ARE DOING AND HOW YOU CAN HELP TO PROTECT YOURSELF AND OTHERS
Our team at NASCAR SpeedPark cares about the health and safety of our staff and our guests. As part of our commitment, the measures listed below are just some of the steps we are taking in accordance with guidelines enacted by the CDC and the Tennessee Pledge specifically for COVID-19.
At NASCAR SpeedPark we take cleanliness and hygiene seriously year-round, but we have increased efforts to help prevent the spread of germs, including increased sanitization of commonly touched surfaces throughout the park. This may require operations to pause from time to time for additional cleaning, and we thank you for your understanding while we take these measures to improve safety.
We have added hand sanitization stations throughout the park. All guests are asked to please sanitize their hands both before and after enjoying our go-kart tracks, rides and arcade games.
Please follow the social distancing guidelines as recommended by the CDC to keep at least 6 feet between your group and others. We have added social distancing markers in our go-kart tracks and ride cue lines, as well as other areas so guests will know where to stand while waiting. Please stand on the floor markers until the group in front of you moves forward. We ask for your patience and cooperation as we make adjustments to allow this distance to be observed throughout appropriate areas in the park.
Our team members wear face coverings. Guests are not required to wear face coverings outside to enjoy our park, but they are recommended by health professionals. We strongly encourage the use of face coverings and will make masks available to our guests upon request.
Team members participate in a daily wellness screening before starting their shift and any team members who are not feeling well are asked to stay home.
We use plexiglass barriers in multiple indoor locations.
We are encouraging guests to use cashless methods of payment and encourage you to pre-purchase your tickets online through our Ticketing Page. To further help with this, we have installed a new cashless system in our arcade which eliminates the handling of tokens and tickets.
We have eliminated self-service food options and use of our water fountains.
We have temporarily closed the Rock-Climbing Wall and turned off our water fountains and hand air dryers. We will provide you with water at the Pit Stop Grill and we offer paper touchless paper towel dispensing for your hand washing in our restrooms.
Please avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth, and avoid touching surfaces at the park, unless required.
Please wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds often throughout your visit, and especially prior to eating or after using the restroom.
Coughs and sneezes: Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow. We have tissues available at the park for your use. Please throw used tissues in the trash and immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, clean your hands with a sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
