    • Bingo. Could not have said it better myself. When I visited Taste of Knott's back in August, this was constantly on my mind. "This event is great, but the park literally feels like it's open already - just no rides. What's the difference?" Wacky policies are one thing, but inconsistent wacky policies are much more frustrating.
    • There are other jobs available.  Not even close to a fair comparison.  And I’m someone who is a causality of this nonsense. The rational argument you should be making is how if the goal is to keep people from congregating and spreading the virus, why isn’t everything shut down?  Costco on the weekend is a madhouse.  Same for malls.  Even Sea World operating as a “zoo” and Knotts as “outdoor dining” being open makes no sense if the goal is to keep people from spreading the virus.  What magical powers to rides have to spread the virus?
    • Sigh. I am glad I kept my expectations low. I hope the parks push back as much as possible.
    • Yes, we have. To be honest, though, we weren't impressed with Energylandia...  
    • I’m so glad I don’t live in California...
    • Disneyland Resort has sent us a collection of statements in response to the State of California's newly-released guidelines limiting park operations and capacity.   STATEMENT FROM KEN POTROCK, PRESIDENT, DISNEYLAND RESORT  We have proven that we can responsibly reopen, with science-based health and safety protocols strictly enforced at our theme park properties around the world. Nevertheless, the State of California continues to ignore this fact, instead mandating arbitrary guidelines that it knows are unworkable and that hold us to a standard vastly different from other reopened businesses and state-operated facilities. Together with our labor unions we want to get people back to work, but these State guidelines will keep us shuttered for the foreseeable future, forcing thousands more people out of work, leading to the inevitable closure of small family-owned businesses, and irreparably devastating the Anaheim/Southern California community.   QUOTES FROM DR. CLAYTON CHAU, DIRECTOR, ORANGE COUNTY HEALTH CARE AGENCY “I think for a large county like us, especially a county with institution of higher education where folks [are] coming in from outside the county and outside the state, I think it’s going to be very hard to achieve the yellow tier.” “It depends on when the vaccine will come as well as how many doses [are] available for our populations as well as how many of our residents will readily accept the vaccine – those are the three factors that will determine how soon we can get to the yellow tier.” “Personally, I think that we can look forward to a yellow tier by next summer, hopefully. Hopefully.”    Erin Guerrero, Executive Director, California Attractions and Parks Association “To say today’s announcement on theme parks is disappointing would be a grave understatement. The Governor has not used science or data to inform his decision. Theme parks have opened and operated safely around the world for months. Data and science prove that theme parks can operate responsibly anywhere – there is no rational reason to believe they can’t do so in California. No one cares more about park employee and guest safety than the parks themselves. “Let me be unequivocal– the guidance issued by the Newsom Administration will keep theme parks shuttered for the foreseeable future. By forcing amusement parks to stay closed until their home county reaches Tier 4, the Governor has issued a “Keep Theme Parks Closed Indefinitely” Plan which will devastate California’s major theme park industry. “This plan prolongs unemployment for tens of thousands of people, hastens bankruptcy for families and small business owners adjacent to parks, and contributes to insolvency for local governments whose budgets rely on parks as an anchor economic driver. “While we appreciate the more nuanced approach in the guidance for smaller theme parks, keeping California’s larger parks closed is unfair and unreasonable. Based on the responsible reopening of parks in other countries and states, science and data do not support the indefinite closure of this iconic industry in California. “Responsibly reopening amusement parks on a reasonable timeline can and should be done while we fight this pandemic – the two are not mutually exclusive. California’s theme parks and their phenomenal workforce are ready to reopen responsibly. Parks’ loyal guests are ready and the communities and local governments surrounding the parks are ready. We urge Governor Newsom to revise this guidance to allow for a reasonable and responsible reopening of California’s signature theme park industry in Tier 3.”
    • It totally is but I’m just not about that. He was also like 16. Lol
    • I get that you don't want to put individual people on blast, but that kind of behavior from a ride op is completely uncalled for. That being said, I'm glad you all had a great time at Hershey. I'm looking forward to visiting it again next year.
    • https://covid19.ca.gov/safer-economy/ You have to click on the county in the map
    • Just realized I posted this TR on page 420. Score!
    • That's why I said "Ehhhhh" hahaha. I just think they are hard to compare in the example you are giving; and that it's not really apples to apples.    But maybe it comes down to this: The state thinks very large gatherings aren't safe, even if all safety measures are followed.  And, Voting 'shouldn't' be drawing the same large crowds in any given location.  I'm not defending the state, just trying to understand it.  
    • to give credit tho..the Ride Ops behind him (on the other side of the station) *are* wearing their masks correctly. had it just slipped down on him before you snapped the pic?  or is that just how he was wearing it?    (I mean, why bother if you aren't gonna wear it correctly). at SFFT saw several "park guests" wearing masks this way, but at least all the ride ops were wearing correctly -  of course SFFT had issues in regards to Social Distancing.     At the end of the day, as Bill kinda implies above,  you gotta deal with what you feel safe doing. from your pics, I'd feel totally safe at Hershey, and wish was close enough to go for a visit (and to see the trees). but I would skip Skyrush
    • Not trying to get into a debate here, but how is working and earning a living not a constitutional right?  Second paragraph man.  
    • Ehhhhhhhh. That's an awful stretch you're making there. Voting is a right, and turning people away is illegal.    Though I 1 billion percent DO NOT agree with the state guidelines, it's not comparable to a constitutional right.
