I haven't paid attention to what they are reopening but it is only a matter of time until they explode again (rising already, past week over week). That state has proven to be terrible at keeping people safe and alive during this.


Case numbers are somewhat irrelevant, hospital numbers are what need to be watched as that is what indicates serious cases. 900 cases is a drop of water to Florida's tidal wave. And NY positive percentage is way down in the single digits. WNY's positive percentage yesterday was 0.8%, the region SFDL is in was 0.9% and the 7 day average for the state is 1%. Contrast that with Florida's 14.5% and mix in high mask compliance and I'd say NY is doing just fine right now. I have no idea why the Emperor hasnt allowed theme parks to open yet.

The Emperor of NY is allowing indoor malls to re-open, yet still no word on theme parks. :x

I was actually just thinking about how I love the Darien Lake thread but I just wish there was some way it could be more of complete f*cking sh*tshow and boom... politics.

I Love Donkeys!

Well at this point 2020 seems all but lost for Darien Lake. Even with the number of cases down significantly, I feel like Cuomo would rather wait for a vaccine before allowing theme parks to open.

Yeah, the silence is deafening. How malls were allowed before theme parks doesnt make much sense to me. Were almost at the point where staffing is an issue in a normal year.

Yeah, at this point I think pretty much every park in NY isn't opening this year. With only a month left in the summer season it'd probably be less financially devastating to just not open as opposed to hire staff and spend money on added safety measures for such a short season.

Plus, King Andy already cancelled the state fair, so yeah, I think I wasted money on a season pass I cannot use. Lol

It appears that SF is making their 2021 announcements on Thursday. Does anyone think we get anything other than the slide we were supposed to get this year?

I would like another flat ride for next year, but am not holding out hope considering that the park did not technically open this year
