“Star City has decided to postpone its long awaited reopening. While the current Alert Level allows the operation of amusement parks or theme parks at reduced capacity levels, we feel that given the rising number of [COVID-19] cases in the country, postponement is the more prudent thing to do,” it said.

“Ensuring the safety [and] well-being of guests and employees takes precedence,” it added.
