^^ Yeah, L.A. County loves to boast its low COVID numbers and high vaccination rate, yet keeps adding restrictions as if the pandemic is still in full swing. Looking over the park's schedule, it looks like the vaccination mandate will be enforced Fri - Sun until the end of Fright Fest. No days are denoted after October, but I'm sure it will be enforced during weekends around Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's. No mention of which days masks will be required, though.

I spent an entire day at SFOG wearing a mask.

it's NOT that big a deal, folks.

either wear a mask if you go those days that require it?  or don't go those days.

And I know this isn't everywhere in all the parks currently, but .... Playland(PNE) provided a "Rest Area" for those needing to breathe w/o the mask on. Rules were still applied as to distancing and number in the area, etc. And only for a short time, each visit. And they have a staff member there, like a standby nurse (heh) if somebody is wheezing and/or having probs, etc. And it's obviously NOT a smoking area. They provide that too, in another part of the park. Cigs only, sadly. So....

If your park provides the Rest Area, or a Rest Area of some kind, then go and take advantage of it. But wear the mask all - other - times. Eating/drinking in a single spot, excluded.

^ Dunno about that. Possible/probable. But I don't smoke cigarettes any more, so I didn't pay much attention to how they run it. Or go near it, lol.

@bert425^^^ "I spent an entire day at SFOG wearing a mask.     it's NOT that big a deal, folks. either wear a mask if you go those days that require it?  or don't go those days."

Bert I hear what you're saying. It was your choice to wear the mask. It's not required.  I did that (mask wearing) last year. This is just insane now! Nobody but LA county requires this when you're outdoors.

Does covid know to stay away Monday -- Thursday??? Just kidding.

That's the main issue, outdoor transmission is proven to be close to zero.  Since everyone in the park has been vaccinated or has a negative test, wearing masks is pretty much pointless.

I don't think it's a big deal either.  Ever since the Delta variant came into play, I always wear masks outdoors in crowded spaces. 

TBH, I still don't yet feel comfortable eating indoors, either.  I either eat outdoors or take it home (or in the car if I'm traveling).

Also, Orange County hasn't required it because they're run by insane people.

And I don't think it's a safe assumption that everyone with proof of vaccination are being honest about it.

Which becomes the more dangerous version of "faking your ID to get into a bar", which is (to me) so 1950s. 🍹

But I fear that some twats are going to do just that. Fake their Covid Vaccination card(s), and try to get away with it.

New signage hung at the park yesterday about the new vax/mask requirements:

The new rules are just one more incentive to avoid the park on weekends, IMO. I typically swing by the park on my way home from work during the week, and it sounds like those days won't be affected for now. If I get the coaster itch on a weekend, I'll just drive a little further to Knott's.

In other news, it looks like a Tatsu repaint is in the works:

I think green supports and solid yellow track would look great on Tatsu. I just hope it's not green and orange... yuck!

I’d love to think they’ll do something unique and contemporary, like a dark forest green, teal,  or even a burnt orange to go with the bright green, but you know it’s gonna be another standard color right off the ROYGBV color wheel 🙃 Prove me wrong, Six Flags!

The park should be empty this coming Tuesday right? Walk ons except for the usual X, Tatsu and probably West Coast/Crazanity? Or are 1 train operations making lines like 15-30 minutes? 

I went on a couple of weekdays last week. Crowds were light, but there were one-train ops on everything except Twisted Colossus (which ran two trains). Everything had about a 5-10 minute wait except for X2, Full Throttle, and Superman - which were both close to 30 minutes. X2 was running 4-minute dispatches in addition to one-train ops, and only the forward side of Superman was running. Apocalypse, Viper, Riddler, Batman, and Scream were walk-ons.

I would expect this week to be similar.

Recently posted on YouTube. Watch for the right side drop in use for Jet Stream. 😛

Thank you for this!  Revolution; a train dispatching every time a train goes down drop 2.  The way it was meant!  Not crappy headrests or bucket seat and low brakes!  Beautiful!

That's how coasters used to run; there was no song and dance before each dispatch.  People had common sense; get in cuz the train is leaving!  Demon at SFGAmerica (my home park) used to have a train on the lift when the one before it hit the first loop, while the 3rd train was entering the station.  Whizzer ran 5 trains, no restraints.  Get in and hold on to your sh*t!  And no air gates...

For those who work at the park or who went over the weekend, do they require you to wear a mask on all the rides on proof of vaccination days?  Thanks. 

I went Sunday.  Vax check at entrance security.  Masking requested outside but not enforced (or obeyed).  Tatsu and Viper were both down til I left at 4.

How did they do the Vax check?  Is a picture of your card on your phone enough or do they need to see the actual vax card?
