  1. With today's guidelines the park will never reopen. To get the positive test % low enough for the yellow tier will always find more asymptomatic cases than the yellow tier permits in a county with 3.3 million people. Virus strains circulate for years in spite of our vaccine efforts; we have never tested for them among the asymptomatic.
  2. And water coasters don't present the height issue that water slides do...he can do them!
  3. ^^Speaking from Lockdownland (CA) if I could ride Banshee again now (as I had planned to this summer) it would feel AMAZING! ^^^Thanks for the update! This park is doing a great job!
  4. ^One thought with this lead time is you could carry N95 material masks with you and wear them when you have concerns. Really depends on the conditions you find, as you say.
  5. Thanks! So those coasters would be 69 tickets. With 11 more tickets for flats, 80 tickets which would be $64 at Weis. Maybe consider the difference a worthwhile donation to help the park. Just a thought.
  6. ^Just curious, what does your typical list of rides on a Knoebels day look like (in general terms)?
  7. I do have faith that the Imagineers will deliver...eventually. Watch the excellent TPR POV of MMRR to see what they can do with constraints. No doubt the budget will be lower now, and it will take a while, Don't worry about the ride having an edge...if there's one thing Disney rarely avoids, it's an edge.
  8. Kinda fuzzy...a giant bayou tree? https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2020/06/new-adventures-with-princess-tiana-coming-to-disneyland-park-and-magic-kingdom-park/ Wow. My guess is 2024.
  9. Cleverly managed social media (twitter. Change.org) by the mouse to timely boost this 2019-origin project. With no remaining prospect for cashflow from the IP a win-win for corporate. I'm happy as long as the original ride stays at Tokyo. My daughter's childhood is connected to it and we love Japan...and will return when we're allowed. Like everyone under 25, her knowledge of the songs is not from a movie she's never seen but from the Sing-Along Songs animation excerpts that used to be on the Disney channel.
  10. Ditto. The state allowed 1600 per block of Virgina Beach a month ago. Sane fate for KD?
  11. Thanks for the awesome, encouraging report! If there's a silver lining of this awful year it may be that Six Flags has incentive to master food mobile order fulfillment... I can dream!
  12. Before you pay for the ticket online you choose the reservation time...currently you can pick between 10 and 2 on that day for a single day ticket.
  13. Perhaps higher staffing ratios help with mask "reminders". We just got the statewide mask order in CA so I hope this helps with parks reopening here.
  14. ^I hope that happens! It's great when someone invests in public entertainment of any kind right now!
  15. ^Exactly. I've thought a lot about my Disneyland Flex Passports...bought as upgrades to a SoCal 3 day pass. Developing the Flex infrastructure last year was prescient to say the least. I hesitated at the time, concerned about capacity limits. Who decides when I can make a reservation? As it turned out we luckily got on ROTR (the most amazing park attraction yet IMO) on two different days, which made it feel worthwhile. But now, in the new world, "democratic" access to super-headliners may be replaced with resort guest ride reservations. Disneyland Resort rooms were $800/night with tax for their proposed reopening. If you were them, in this financial situation, how could you, uh, resist making those guests happy? Social distancing looks marginal...but face coverings look OK
  16. Dollywood brings up the issue of value for money in the current operating environment. One day tickets are $79, with minimal discounts available...interesting they've put up $10 off online this (Father's Day) weekend. Parking is $15. Last visit to the area we considered spending that on the local alpine coasters. The shows made us go back to Dollywood. With few shows and other limitations that calculation changes. The higher end (DreamMore) guests are the wild card...how many will choose a resort stay with limited operations? If the answer isn't great Dollywood will, I suspect, have to push short-term local discounts before long. We shall see.
  17. Four of the Boomers! parks Palace sold to Apex closed permanently June 8: Boomers! San Diego Boomers! El Cajon Boomers! Fountain Valley Boomers! Upland
  18. If they don't sell the ride all day tickets they wouldn't need it. Their issue is as a free parking/admission ungated park...no way to limit entrance. Now at least the Family Kingdom example is out there...similar, not the same. Knoebels is my favorite place in the world and I'm worried about their future.
  19. ^I've been able to ride the Raptors in Santa Clara and San Antonio, and I can tell you that Raptors are a unique, exhilarating experience! This is a great coaster for KK and will again get me back to the park!
  20. With Sclitterbahn New Braunfels entering a new era, time for a thread for one of the newest Cedar Fair parks! I hope to travel to SNB later this summer with my daughter using Knott's Platinum Passes. So far, no luck with the reservation system (Cedar Fair bought the park last year). If anyone succeeds at visiting with a CF Platinum Pass, please let me know! Thanks!
  21. When CF introduced the multi-park aspect of their better pass years ago, I traveled the country with my daughter and had to hassle with each and every guest services office at the other parks to use it...system not compatible. That pass is sold explicitly as valid at Schlitterbahn. If they don't respond to your polite email requesting a reservation I would politely email corporate.
  22. I do think a lot of folks don't have these...I often see thick cloth and polypropylene N95 derivatives...both are a lot hotter (though the latter is unquestionably more effective at reducing viral load on exposure). I think this is key to happily adjusting to these visits. I understand, though, that the park legally can't advise on your choice of PPE.
