  1. Have you priced any of the other Drive thru events in SoCal? WonderLAnd SoCal, a similar event, is charging $70-100 per car, regardless of how many are in the car (which really screws you over if you're by yourself). Dodgers Stadium just today announced a holiday drive through event at $55 per car. Most of the drive thru haunts in SoCal charged $80-140 per car (again, even if you were the only one in the car). The only one to charge less was Tunnel of Terror, and that's because it was literally just an automated car wash. Still thinking $20 a person is too much?
  2. Actually, Orange County is in the red tier, and (at the moment) shows no sign of slipping back. And I was thinking, "how can they be in red, when so many there are anti-mask?" But I think the answer lies in what you said about SF: it's a wealthy area, so they have no issue staying home.
  3. ^^Theme parks are the yellow tier. There is no green tier, which should explain why you've never seen it. It doesn't exist. It was intentional, because (paraphrasing), "we will never be entirely safe.". And he's not really wrong on that point. At this point, it's like getting toothpaste back in the tube.
  4. The Halloween version did have some minor "Ghost Town Alive" interactions. Plenty of characters in Ghost Town. Peanuts characters on the trail. Sad Eye Joe is available. There's a DJ near Hangtime, and the stage nearby alternates between screenings of Krazy Kirk and a live magician. as well as a few more live performers in the Boardwalk. That's not enough? Essentially can't do any more than that in these times.
  5. Actually, I don't see why they can't do Holiday in the Park in much the same way Knott's is doing their events. It's the one event they could actually have some draw, and it doesn't require the rides to be open. Add is some food (which, frankly, they have been doing the last few years), and it seems to be a no brainer. Plenty of space to socially distance, it's a huge park.
  6. In terms of covid, I actually think SFMM will be one of the safer parks. Outdoor/outside ventilation is one of the major factors to being safe, and nearly all their rides are outside already. Again, in terms of covid, I'm going to feel a lot safer at SFMM than, say, Disneyland. When that places opens up, it'll be a madhouse (and even if they limit entry with reservations, I personally am not going to count on other guests practicing social distancing), and nearly every attraction is indoors there. Similar for Universal, although I do think they'll mostly be able to handle mask wearing and social distancing more a little better, since their fan base isn't quite a ravenous. Knott's falls inbetween, but I think will mostly be pretty safe.
  7. I'm still betting on nothing till 2021 at best. Number are still not great. They do go down, but then often go right back up.
  8. For rides? I'm thinking 2021, yes. But I wouldn't be surprised if it opened just as an outdoor venue for a Holiday in the Park experience.
  9. Under these circumstances, is anyone really expecting a full scale Fright Fest? Given so many big players have dropped out, I think even a very watered down experience would still be a draw, if they found a way to pull it off. Big "if", though.
  10. Was 10/4 the possible reopening for Fright Fest? So that means Fright Fest is off for SFMM?
  11. Anyone know if the rumor of SFMM getting Fright Fest to open (modified for covid) this year is true?
  12. Is parking free? If so, I assume they're not doing the Premium Parking for Diamond Elite.
  13. Any word on how they are doing refillable mugs (if they are doing them at all)?
  14. BFD. It's still not required to wear masks anywhere else. I mean, it's a step in the right direction, but not enough to make me visit.
  15. Rumors are estimating mid-July, but as usual, things are apt to change.
  16. We were thinking about driving out there from LA, since we're not crazy about the idea of flying with COVID... but seeing the lack of people wearing masks or social distancing in the park is giving us pause. I have a feeling we may end up passing.
  17. As of today, Universal Citywalk has partially opened. Parking is free (at the moment), and the following are supposed to be open: Voodoo Doughnut Johnny Rockets Blaze Pizza Starbucks Crepe Cafe Pizza Hut & KFC Taco Bell Buca di Beppo Shoe Palace Skechers Guess Accessories On a side note, apparently the Smashburger is being replaced by The Habit (not open yet).
  18. The kids are not exactly excused from school... there would still be distance learning happening, and many teachers are requiring live zoom meetings and whatnot. While I'm sure a fair number don't participate, they are often taking care of family or working, so I don't necessarily think massive numbers of kids will be free.
  19. Yeah, I was going to say, some people have been reading WAY too much into that.
  20. That may be true, but I didn't see any currently listed on their site. Maybe there's local deals, but if I'm from LA looking to get tickets later this summer, I'm not sure how I'd find those deals. When I google "Lagoon discounts", all I get is the currently blank Lagoon discount page, and a list of those rip off coupon code sites that are also probably out of date. Nothing viable.
  21. ^Everything they said. If track is there (and assuming the pics aren't fake), the ride is already likely paid for. While obviously there aren't any pics from inside the park, have any of the recent drone footage caught any signs of footers or other such work?
