  1. Very happy to see this wonderful park working with this great roller coaster designer/builder. Now to start traveling again and get back Silverwood.
  2. Thanks for the feedback. I'll contact Robb and ask him to restore the Park Index to back-up files from June 15th. That is around the last time I can guarantee its accuracy.
  3. Thanks for letting me know. Was July 22nd/23rd the last time you looked in the Park Index? Just trying to estimate the hack date.
  4. I don't know what happened between 12-3 today. I arrived at the parking booth at 3PM, three hours after the person above left. The parking attendant said the park is open but the park doesn't have power to run the rides and didn't know when they would be back online. I figured I would still take a chance since I was there. I was told the same thing at the temperature check and by the person scanning my pass. So I figured I would grab lunch and take two laps around the park. As others have said, the food reservation process works quite well (although you can't make a custom order). So
  5. Drayton Manor has been purchased out of administration by The Looping Group. The Looping Group owns 15 European parks, including 2 others in the UK: West Midlands Safari Park and Pleasurewood Hills The Bryan family will be kept on as part of the management team https://www.business-live.co.uk/retail-consumer/almost-600-jobs-saved-looping-18707961 Almost 600 jobs saved as Looping Group buys Drayton Manor Park By Laura Watson 14:36, 3 AUG 2020 Updated15:03, 3 AUG 2020 Drayton Manor Park has been sold to Looping Group A family-run theme park which attracts more
  6. I appreciate the quick change of direction from Knoebels
  7. Rye Playland will not open in 2020 https://newyork.cbslocal.com/2020/06/30/rye-playland-not-opening-coronavirus/ Rye Playland Amusement Park Will Not Open This Year Due To COVID-19 June 30, 2020 at 9:04 pm RYE, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — Rye Playland Amusement Park will not open this year. The park was originally supposed to open in May, but Westchester County Executive George Latimer says it just could not open safely during the coronavirus pandemic. Latimer says the county will use this time to make some planned capital improvements. While the amusement park is closed, t
  8. 1) Actions speak louder than words 2) Making a statement such as you suggest is easy to do, but also opens up Disney to immediately needing to respond to every covert unseen racist accusation against the company. I'm certain would want to able to respond properly to any accusation and preparing for that takes time and planning. 3) Chip and Dale mountain in Japan in the final straw in the Alvey's moving to Japan.
  9. The pandemic is the reason for the delayed opening, not the fact that the pandemic delayed construction. It is all about the money at this point and not worth opening Jersey Devil if they can't bring in large crowds with social distancing. Even if SFGAdv draws COVID capacity crowds the the park will struggle to make a profit since an even higher percentage of park visitors will be eager season pass holding enthusiasts willing to make reservations in an effort to maximize the return on investment on their season pass. With reduced park capacity it is a battle between season pass holders a
  10. Update on the timing of this project: 2023 https://english.kyodonews.net/news/2020/06/c6ddeb6f7252-harry-potter-theme-park-to-open-in-tokyo-in-1st-half-of-2023.html Harry Potter theme park to open in Tokyo in 1st half of 2023 KYODO NEWS KYODO NEWS - 14 hours ago - 20:40 | All, Japan, Lifestyle A 94-year-old amusement park Toshimaen in Tokyo will be closed at the end of August, its owner said Friday, and part of the site will be used for a new theme park based on the Harry Potter films, due to open in the first half of 2023. Seibu Railway Co. signed a deal to sell a large part
  11. Regarding the Andrews, I referred to them as Andy (you), AJ, Andrew and with Rector I was usually just shaking my head. I once coached a 5th-6th grade basketball team where 5 of the 10 kids were named Mike.
  12. I was actually smiling because Drievliet is possibly my favorite micro park. But thanks for continuing to promote NeuroGen.
  13. Discussion threads get created when there are multiple news stories about the park that the people of TPR respond to. I highly recommend starting a new thread with Marineland in the title. Once I see real discussion out there a Discussion Thread is created. I'm talking about real news. If people start threads about a new lemonade stand, a bathroom being refurbished or a new cleaning service being hired, then I'm unlikely to create a Discussion Thread.
  14. Parks benefit more from a thousand families visiting 3-4 times a year, than from a thousand enthusiasts visiting once every 3-4 years.
