  1. Today
  2. ^ Uh huh. And a klassy Marlboro (cigarettes) lettering on it's side, too.
  3. Unless they somehow win the lawsuit, next MAY is now what's being circulated in the break room so that by then most people will be hopefully vaccinated. Too much liability if some sick person comes in and spreads it however which way.; they'll just have to spend all that money to ramp up and shut down again. There's no ride manual for COVID. They are also going to need a huge amount of security staff and cameras because people tend to let their guards down around their friends i.e. all the young guests and somehow they've gotta keep this under control. You know how respectful people were and a
  4. It is actually pretty funny to see a "modern version" of Hulk. Vest restraints, smoothed out transitions, and slightly different shaping on the inversions. All of the characteristics of 2021 B&M vs. 1999 B&M. Nonetheless, the park looks great.
  5. Read about NBA (National Basketball Player) players wingspan at outdoorballpro.com
  6. Get yourself a portable basketball hoop and play basketball in your backyard for about 5 hours per week, you will see significant results in weight loss along with enjoying hooping the ball.
  7. Dollywood has been BEAT UP in social media for their customer service all around this year yet they stay mum on everything. I’m not sure it’s ALL warranted, but they have certainly tarnished their image a lot and I’m not so sure they will get some of the shine back
  8. So we were at a Korean park last week. Even before corona the parks tend to shut half the rides or operate them on half day shifts on off peak weekdays. I bring this up because the lines I'm talking about here aren't a handful of people, I took my son to a park on Friday and because less rides run, we waited maybe 30-40 minutes for some children's rides in cattle pens. The park has footprints painted in the lines but people just didn't social distance or follow the stickers in any of the lines, you were packed in for 20-40 minutes. And although everyone wore masks people were const
  9. A couple years ago I was berated by a user for making a comment about Chinese food, so I won't rule anything out. That's a lot of buck for that bang.
  10. Yesterday
  11. there are a few Flats on Flash Pass at Fiesta (not many, but a handful). but even those like Joker had minimum 45-1 hour wait on Gold. Granted if you go Platinum, that will cut way down on that, but I believe the only Flats with FlashPass are: Joker (giant Pendulum) Bugs' Rapids (Flume) Scream (Drop Tower) Skyscreamer (Starflyer) Hurricane Force 5 (Disc-O) Pirates of Deep Sea (Dark Ride/Shooter) & Gully Washer (whitewater rafts) so yeah. . All the coasters but Wonder Woman have it tho!
  12. Thanks. It's strange, right? I guess folks are so desperate to get out and have some fun, that everyone is coming out, resulting in the crowds. Covid doesn't seem to be on many folks minds - in particular, the lack of social distancing as the crowds got larger thruout the day (not that really anything could be done about that - if you're letting that many people in? you're letting that many people in). Agreed 100% heck, we even took a 25 minute break to wait in standby for SuperVillain Swings (W-I-D-E standby line) while waiting for our Iron Rattler FP t
  13. Hotel Matamba is the African-themed hotel and Nrthwnd is right, it's a lobby bar with a patio available. It's nice and the drinks are delicious but it's nothing compared to Dragon Bar. Really, is there ever a choice between "ground floor lobby bar" or "indoor/outdoor rooftop bar overlooking the park"?
  14. As a theatre industry professional (backstage, design, management), I'm gonna have to disagree with you there. Here's an non-exhaustive list of reasons why - Let's get this out of the way right out in front. Too many goddamn video/projection-based effects. This is a stage show, so use some stagecraft. The constant projections instead of the multitude of better, prettier illusions that could be used are a slap in the face to any stage tech worth their salt. Speaking of video and projection reliance, most of the "sets" are not sets at all, just a video with a large open stage.
  15. I would imagine like any other year around park would do it. It's not like the park has never been open during constructions. Chickies and Petes was in the middle of construction when the park reopened in 2015, 2016 County Fair was still getting rides put together from opening weekend all the way through early June, Copperhead started construction in summer 2018 went vertical during Winterfest in November. We the local people are use to by now . It honestly to me is good marketing to let people see in person stuff being built, gives them add reason to really come back now that they've seen sa
  16. That is something the park would love to do, however light packages are expensive especially for a good one. Right now that money is better spent elsewhere in the park.
  17. Thing is, people are so used to following Covid protocol right now – especially in California where they have had some of the strictest restrictions and guidelines. Social distancing/mask wearing/sanitizing is so engrained in our day to day lives right now that people are just as safe going to a theme park they are as any other activity, and far safer than just about any indoor activity such as going to the grocery store or Costco. I’m also no anti-masker/Covid denier - I’ll gladly wear a mask anywhere and everywhere and I’m definitely not voting for a certain former reality TV star. I just do
  18. The point was that under Newsome's guidelines, that's how every state would qualify - not saying what each state is actually doing.
  19. This isn't quite accurate.... pretty much everything here in Kentucky is open.... bars and restaurants are running at reduced capacity, some movie theaters are open, KK was open for awhile.
  20. I always stick to Gold unless a specific ride is a Platinum exclusive. By the time the employees scan my Flash Pass unit and I get off the ride, usually my next reservation is ready to go.
  21. I had a similar experience at Indiana Beach where one of the operators criticized me for wearing a mask saying it was useless. I still think the craziest thing I heard from a ride op this year was the 9/11 joke one of them told at Holiday World. That was after the same employee mentioned the comedy shows of today can't compete with the classics...like SpongeBob.
  22. I thought it was a sort of weird shade of brown? It's a weird case of the dress and the sneakers. Nevertheless I do think I preferred the blue colour, even though this will probably work better with the theme.
  23. Great report! The return times with the Flash Pass at Great Adventure this past weekend were equally as crazy. But I would much rather be strolling around the midway rather than packed into a bunch of switchbacks with others right now. That's a bummer Wonder Woman was taken off the Flash Pass, but that does make sense with the reduced capacity. I always find it awkward trying to get to Flash Pass merge points that are inside the main queue. I had a similar issue at Dollywood earlier this year trying to get to the Timesaver entrance for Lightning Rod when the queue spilled onto the
  24. And yet, all over the country.... the WORLD even... I keep seeing stories like this one pop up saying that not a single COVID case has been linked to going to at theme park. It just makes zero sense... https://www.ocregister.com/2020/09/14/largest-u-s-theme-parks-report-no-covid-19-outbreaks-since-reopening/
  25. Honestly if money is going to be spent on Colossus lighting something like this would probably be better bang for your buck.
