  1. The saga may be over, Standard Amusement is allowed to run Playland https://newyork.cbslocal.com/2020/12/18/playland-standard-amusements/ Exclusive: Westchester County Executive Agrees To Turn Over Playland Management To Private Firm By Tony AielloDecember 18, 2020 at 7:40 pm RYE, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — There has been a major development for the future of Playland, the country’s only government-operated amusement park. The county executive in Westchester has agreed to turn over management of Playland to a private company starting in 2022. A thaw in the legal battle o
  2. If I remember correctly, Wonder Garden was as you assumed, but for kids only.
  3. I was about to post similar info and photos Yahoo News picked up from engadget after the press release YahooLink Other Key Takeaways: Although small to open a Donkey Kong area is under construction Osaka is a COVID hot spot again Super Nintendo World, the much anticipated “life-size, living video game” theme park will open on February 4th in Osaka, Universal Studios Japan has announced. The opening date is a welcome surprise, as Universal and Nintendo last said that the park would open in the spring of 2021. To get folks revved up, Universal Studios Japan (USJ) ha
  4. 5 days of complimentary nights at the resort is worth half the price. If a family of 4 buys 4 passes are they entitled to 4 separate 5 night stays. It is a large investment but, if you look at it that way it's not a bad deal.
  5. It's all about adding money to the bottom line immediately during Q4 since 2020 passes were extended through 12/31/2021. I'm more surprised they are not trying to pre-sell Flash Passes to 2020 Season Pass holders at this time.
  6. I've never been one to go all gaga over Anton, but I enjoyed this coaster. And the Polyp fits in nicely with the park's classic vibe. These two rides are choices by the new owner.
  7. Here are a few photos that ran in a variety of Japanese newspapers last month. The new Opening Date is Spring 2021
  8. Very happy to see this wonderful park working with this great roller coaster designer/builder. Now to start traveling again and get back Silverwood.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. I appreciate the quick change of direction from Knoebels
  14. 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
  15. 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.
