Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

I do not believe that would hold up in court. You voluntarily chose to enter the park. The only way I think you could bring a successful lawsuit would be to prove the park knowingly withheld information pertaining to your safety. I think most parks are lawyered up enough to cover that.

 

On the other hand I can totally see them having the waivers as a just in case. Which I personally would have no problem signing. And I have watched droves of parents sign waivers for their children for things like zip lining, white water rafting, virtual reality, ropes courses, snow skiing and tubing, and other number of activities that could cause impending death. If you are willing to plan a trip, the waiver probably won't stop you.

I feel bad because this is all I post about lately but no... if a park has the ability to open and there's demand and they choose to stay closed then they're dumb. Period. Be creative and figure it ou

Did they happen to mention how heavy that train is?

So basically there were about as many rides open as there would be in peak season with 15 mph winds.

I am sure along with the copious amounts of hand sanitizer stations around the parks; there will be lots of new signage with instructions about social distancing, hand washing, not touching your face, etc etc. Which will serve the same purpose as all those signs in every ride line about not riding with certain health conditions that are complete overkill. They are there way more for protection of the park than for the consumer.

If we get to the point where you can sue a business because you think that you got a contagious illness from someone who was there I'm leaving and moving to Sweden. The flu kills 60,000 Americans every year, if you set that precedent then all businesses would need to close from September to May every year forever.

Amen.

^^ Please Bill, let's not go there again. The flu does not kill 60K in a month. Plus many of those flu death people did not/refuse to get the flu vaccine, Anti-Vaxers and all. This is something totally new and there are just too many unknowns as of yet.

I wanted to leave the country after Erin Andrews got over 100-million dollars for her bruised dignity from a hotel because they didn't know their peepholes could be reversed by someone carrying tools. Why is a rich person's dignity worth a 100-million?

I agree with you Bill, you cannot sue a business because you leave the house and catch an infectious disease. It was your choice. That would never stand in court, most lawyers will tell you so, and that is why it doesn't happen every year with flu, colds, whatever.

He's simply stating the company isn't liable if you go in and get sick. How is that an issue? Enter at your own risk or stay home. That's all.

 

Thank you. People hear “flu” now and their heads explode. You don’t even have to compare the epidemics, all you need to do now is state that it exists. It’s crazy...

 

That was also just one example. If you apply that logic to coronavirus you can apply it to every contagious disease. That’s my point (including the flu, because the vaccine usually only stops around half of the cases, though everyone should still get it).

 

This virus has (like everything) become politicized now and having any discussion about it seems almost pointless. I just keep most of it to myself.

Thanks for the photos, particularly the Magnum construction ones!

 

Banshee was going to be the name for Mantis, right? I never knew they got as far as designing a logo for it, and I definitely didn't realise that the King's Island logo design was basically an updated version. What a nice touch.

Most of Sandusky already looks like a pandemic hit back in the 80's, I can't imagine how they recover from this if they can't get CP open by July 4th.

 

Sandusky is home to a historic Cholera Cemetary from the mid-1800s, so you're kinda correct!

Cedar Fair actually retooled the logo that was going to be used for Cedar Point's Banshee/Mantis and used it for Dorney Park's Steel Force.

IMHO, the movie Tommy Boy sums up what Sandusky would likely be like with no Cedar Point

It was actually like 50 something million and the stalker and the hotels were both found responsible for about half that amount match each but it's not like that stalker will ever be able to pay anywhere near close to the full amount. The hotels were giving her stalker the dates she was staying there as well as a room right next to hers with absolutely no questions asked, that's certainly a bit more than the hotels just not being aware that their peepholes could be reversed.

 

I do agree that a celeb shouldn't be treated any differently though and that anyone should be able to sue for that much if they had this happen to them.

Great photos! Man, Cedar Point needs a log flume. That one they used to have looks really fun.

Preach!

 

Been saying this for YEARS!

Especially when Knotts has the BEST log flume in the world! Cedar Point could make their own version of that and put in on Frontier Trail or Frontiertown.

 

PLEASE! Not everyone wants to get SOAKED and walk around with wet shoes all day!
