  3. Here is my proposal: The park should require guests to wear masks at all times, but they should have areas like Tower Gardens and other seating areas designated as “break areas” where guests can sit down, take off their masks, and take a breather. As soon as guests leave these “mask-free” areas, they should then be required to put their masks back on.

  7. As an employee, I'm worried about enforcing those rules. Especially with how some people can be when told to follow rules. Tbh idk if I see the mask requirement lasting more than this season. I could actually see it not be too bad for the first few weeks of opening, but once we get later in the season, people may start getting tired of the mask policy and start taking them off anyway.

  10. Get ready for the complaints to pour in from people that bought the season long FL if they are not available this year (although they were extended into next year to keep them "whole") I can already see people saying they will not go to the park if their FL pass isn't available... Parks have been put into an almost impossible situation this year - no matter what they do, a good chunk of their base is going to be ticked with whatever requirements the park develops to open. We have people saying the will not go if they do not make masks a requirement, and others are saying they wi

  11. The mask situation has become interesting just based on my local observations as various business continue to open up. Two weeks ago, 95% of everyone I saw had on a mask. A week ago, roughly half. In the last few days, I have rarely seen anyone in a mask in a store or restaurant, except for employees that are required to wear them, and most of them have been sporting the trendy "chin masks".

  12. That Scooby Doo picture is awesome! If this were an earlier time (like the 70's or the 90's), I could totally picture a Scooby Doo themed PSA with lines like this: "Like, social distancing, man" -Shaggy "Rah, Rocial Distancing!" (Yeah, Social Distancing!) - Scooby "Hey gang, we need to split up; remember to keep 6 feet apart!" -Fred "Social Distancing helps limit the spread of Covid-19. Jenkies!" Velma -MDMC, who is having way too much fun with this idea!

  15. Where did I say I was staying home? I was pointing out that if people want to continue to go to the park, they better follow the requirements and not post to social media that if masks are required, they will "lose it" once inside. It really isn't that hard of concept - follow the rules and everything remains open. The government has and will shut places down for not following the requirements. I would like to enjoy my fun at the park as much as you, but sadly too many people feel the rules do not apply to them and ruin it for everyone...

  17. I agree! What a sad society commentary when someone is smoking in line and anyone (whether it be another guest, employee, or security) kindly reminds/informs them there is no smoking in line and they go off and say they will smoke wherever they please. I have seen altercations over this. No joke - last year at CP a dude was smoking a cigarette in the queue line at Magnum and was next to get on the ride and was literally blowing his smoke into the employee's face standing there and NOT A THING was said to the guest...I pointed it out to a super and they shrugged their shoulders. It come

  18. I guess my question will be how strict is the mask policy? Will it be required just for queues or indoors? Or do they expect people to walk through the entire park with masks on at all times? Hopefully their policy when stated will be clear, as it'll decide where my dollars go this summer.

  19. Things can change, but according to this article, masks will be required both for patrons and employees and both Cedar Fair parks will open with a reduced number of guests. Another article posted a few pages back in this thread indicated that attendance would be capped initially at 20%, so that would be an attendance of roughly 13,000 to 15,000. According to posts on this thread, typical weekday is 23,000-29,000 guests, so this reduced capacity of 13,000-15,000 guests would be approaching half of say a typical Wednesday crowd. https://sanduskyregister.com/news/249128/dewine-husted-

  20. You're welcome! The map that was included is how I remember all of the park's maps being up until around 2000 when they switched from brochures to the six-fold maps. Like I said, somewhere at my parents' house is treasure trove of those old map brochures. When I interviewed for my job at Guest Services, one of the questions was why do you want to work in Guest Services specifically. I told them that I'd been coming to the park for 30 years and have such a love for it, I wanted to share my knowledge and love with the guests. I also wanted to work there because it was in the A/C and I thoug

  21. I would think the park would give priority for reservations to Passholders initially before selling daily tickets as some other parks have done. Consecutive Day reservations might be an issue, hopefully not, but I could see it.

  23. I've been thinking about that. Tower Gardens, obviously, would be a good place for an area like this. Maybe the walkway between the amusement park and the water park. Also, as I assume they won't be doing shows this year (I could be wrong), you could use International Showplace as a similar area. Also wonder about the feasibility of doing one-way walking paths in certain areas of the park, similar to what we see at grocery stores. Not possible everywhere, but in some areas where you have a divided midway (thinking International Street and much of Coney Mall), you could have one-wa

  25. That number is just the long term care facilities number. https://coronavirus.ohio.gov/wps/portal/gov/covid-19/dashboards/key-metrics/mortality According to this chart, 78% of all deaths in Ohio to coronavirus have been from people over the age of 70. If you take the number back to the 65+ number that I originally said, the percentage will increase again. That is just the stats. Again if you are under the age of 65 the risk of dying to coronavrius is minuscule.

  26. As of right now masks are up to the business not Dewine or a DR. There is no state law requiring you to wear a mask. Not saying I'm not going to but I agree it's kind of silly, especially since all these projections are far wrong. Wheres those 5k+ new cases everyday like they said? I mean your more likely to die from a car crash to or from the park than Covid so there's that. Don't see anyone freaking about driving though...

  30. I don’t see the point in arguing over masks. Yeah Kings Island will probably require masks, and yes they will probably have employees remind guest to wear masks. Whether you wear a mask religiously or laugh them off as a redundant safety measure, I think following park policy is the right way to go. Again, I think the park will try to allow guests to take breathers throughout the day, and I don’t think it should be a problem for even the biggest of mask haters. People who can’t listen to the simplest of instructions probably shouldn’t go to the park now or ever for that matter.

  32. Agreed being Security in the park I am likely to be on high alert I have to be careful about what I can and cannot say in an public forum, however I do know that people who do not follow the rules will be dealt with. I am worried about people getting aggressive over the mask thing, because It is a divided subject hopefully like you say it isn’t horrible but I am worried that information won’t be spread and people will be ill informed and then we have to clean up the mess left behind.

  33. I used to do this back when I worked in food for the park. Trouble is that the only enforcement measure is to call security and by the time they get there (2-3 minutes) the guest is long gone. Plus even if security would be there, they wouldn't do much except inform the guest of the policy.

  34. I rode the Wildcat at Cedar Point but not the Jumbo Jet. These rides are vicious. I walked off counting myself fortunate to be walking after having my knees continuously walloped and my neck yanked. From what I can tell, the Wildcat had a very similar layout to the Beetle.

  37. See, I feel the opposite - I won't go if they do require them in all areas, because it makes no sense to, unless it's in line for a ride or for indoor areas. Ultimately they'll either compromise on that or they'll alienate a large group of the customer base. Either way it's a tough call for them I'd suspect.

  39. Park capacity is right around 70k, the average weekday during the summer is between 22-25k with weekends being 30k and saturday being 35k. This is what I've seen on average and what I've posted on this site in the past.

  42. I said to another Ding Dong the other night in a private message...If you don't want the park to open...don't go to the park! Simple as that. The park wants to open. I want to go to the park. You don't have to. The governor should be providing all sorts of information so people can decide if they want to go. He should not be the dictator over Kings Island and their customers.

  47. So many interesting infrastructure questions! I would think that using wifi (private or not) would not be very desirable for reliability reasons. I would think the park would have a lot of fiber optic cable running all over the place in order to support a number of different things at this point (phones, points-of-sale, security cameras, etc.).

  49. I believe the reason that Drop Tower uses so much energy is because the magnetic brakes are rare earth magnets and are therefor always energized (you don't want to loose your breaks if the power goes out). Therefore the elevator mechanism has to have enough umf to pull the ride vehicle up thru the breaks. When you watch it cycle you will notice that the elevator speeds up once it clears the breaks. The Bat phone went away at some point and I believe it came back in one form or another (a phone or camera) when Banshee opened. It may be gone now but I'm not sure indicating that they ma
