As it turned out, this measure is aimed at combating coronavirus.
The management of the amusement park Fuji-Q Highland has come up with a new way to prevent the spread of coronavirus. Recently, visitors to the park saw a video message showing two high-ranking members of the park administration riding a roller coaster. Both were wearing medical masks and the ride was in complete silence. At the end of the video, you can see on the screen the message "Please, scream silently."
The thing is that when people are screaming they release a lot of saliva, which may contain the coronavirus. Thus, the risk of spreading the disease increases. However, if the riders can restrain themselves, it will decrease the risk of passing the virus to others. Whether the park visitors will follow these recommendations is the big question. While the Japanese are a very responsible people, not everybody can control themselves on a fast ride.
