  1. In all honesty - I thought there would be a 50-50 face covering crowd (similar to a grocery store that doesn't require them). I understand the risk involved - just wanted to share what I experienced in case others are on the fence - or had experienced other parks that do require them and thought it may not be as bad.
  2. I mentioned this in the Kentucky Kingdom thread, but I can't say that I'd recommend a visit to Holiday World this season. With the face masks / coverings being "recommended", I'd say we maybe saw 4-5 groups actually wearing a mask while we were there (on July 4 no less). If it weren't for most crowds being in the water park, we would have left immediately. We were able to get the four coasters done within a couple of hours, but the lack of distancing on top of no one wearing masks was all-around awful. The only silver-lining was that the virtual queuing worked really well - and we
  3. We visited KK this past Saturday (evening) and Sunday (morning). After visiting a couple of Cedar Fair and SF parks after their reopening, I have to say that between KK and Holiday World, we were very uncomfortable with the 99% of guests not wearing masks. It's a bit easier to get over a couple of groups crowding you in a queue, but add this on top of them not wearing masks, and it makes for a rather unpleasant experience. I feel especially bad for the ride ops - having to lean over and check restraints right in the faces of guests not wearing masks. Sunday AM was much better i
  4. I would think that is a relatively slow/moderate summer weekday crowd. Capacity is probably somewhere between 30-35k, so that would be 30%? (Just guessing based on other parks capacity numbers). And that wouldn't be the number of people in the park at any one time - so the number in would be less at any given time.
  5. Reservations are now available - looks like they have six slots (10:30, 11, 11:30, 12, 12:30) with 1,750 per slot. With that in mind, capacity would be capped at 10,500 per day.
  6. Just made a reservation for July 1 at WOF (using a platinum pass). We've had a "midwest" tour scheduled for a while. Can't believe it's actually happening / feasible, but we're going to give it a shot. I had not seen a prior announcement about reservations being available, so figured I would give the heads up to anyone that was trying to get one.
  7. I haven't been to DW since LR first opened and it had a terrible "pothole" at the bottom of the first drop. Going back this weekend - was that resolved / fixed during one of the off seasons? I remember it popping me really hard in the back that distracted me for the rest of the ride.
  8. We purchased the FL+ bundle with our hotel package and it was a bit confusing - but this is how it works. When you check-in, they will give you two receipts for each person / package purchased. The first receipt will be your admission ticket (we had 3-day tickets - so there were three admissions on the same receipt). Be sure to get your hand stamped when you leave the park each day as that is your re-entry method once it's been scanned in the morning. Your second receipt will be for the all-inclusive bundle. This is a bit of a pain, as you have to get your FL+ at any of the locations i
  9. Quick question - for Steel Vengeance, do ride ops assign seats at the station? We have FL+, so I'm curious if the merge point being at the station causes a mess or if they do assignments (which is also a bummer if we're trying to ride in the back).
  10. Has a list been posted that explains where the merge points are for Fast Lane at CP? I know that MF merges at the last queue leg (and you have to wait up the ramp) and Steel Vengeance merges at the station entrance. Can someone share with the others merge (major rides)? Definitely will be buying a FL+ when we visit in June - but want to make sure I have realistic expectations.
  11. Not sure if they're actually used on Alpengeist, but they had a demo in the maintenance bay that was a brake fin you could hold and then try and push through a natural magnet to show how it would slow down a train. It was really difficult to push through.
  12. There are two options for the Coaster tour - Participant ($75) that includes the ride up the lift in Griffon's side car) and Observer (everything but the Griffon ride up). We had to do the Observer version since Griffon's side car was not working that day. We booked about 3 weeks out - and there were 8 people on the tour (plus the two guides). They only offer the tour on certain days as well.
  13. Am I missing something? I thought there were only 3 You're probably right - it was hard to tell the difference between all of them except the Wolves TBH.
  14. Had a great visit to BGW on Saturday. We did the Coaster Insiders Tour - and I was a bit bummed when I got a phone call last week that Griffon's side car would not be in operation for the tour - but we still proceeded to keep our reservation as an "observer" (and got a $25 refund per person) - I'm so glad we did. We arrived around 8:15 to the Toll Plaza - and were not quite sure where to go as they said that is where we would meet to check-in. The confusion may have been caused by the number of cars that were already at the Toll Plaza (which meant it would be a busy day)! Once we f
  15. Thanks - hopefully the chance of rain keeps some people away - and I'm glad we booked the coaster tour!
