    While it wouldn't be *that* difficult to link the two ride systems in such a way, ultimately, a CCTV setup is easier and much cheaper to execute.

    That might be a little cheaper but either way you would be running a wire which I assume would be the bulk of the cost.

    Governor Office Press Conference Update:

    Regarding fairs, the working group (task force) came up with a protocol to allow the local county fair board to work with their county health department to develop a plan for the 4-h junior competitions to occur, except for livestock - so photography, etc. can happen. 

    Whether a County Fair happens is up now up to the local level.  All social distancing and other requirements that already exist that overlap like food are still in effect.  He hopes that if a county fair doesn't occur, he hopes they can still figure out a way for the local 4-h to continue.

    Does KI fall under fairs?

  3. I'm think at this point you lost one of the biggest summer holidays.  If a vaccine is expected in early November I think at this point I would make the tough call and shut the park down and try to re-open mid march.  You can add operating days throughout the year and slowly make up the missed season.  Kings Island will be lucky enough to recover from this.but some of the smaller parks I feel will not.  I am surprised we havent seen some parks exchange hands.  Cedar Fair could use some more parks with longer operating schedules.  SFOG?

    It was actually the LT Governor who announced them. He did say that they only have a handful of stuff left to reopen. That's a pretty good sign if you ask me. I think we will get an announcement on amusement parks in the next couple weeks. 

    I think they would just cancel the season if they were knew they would likely stay closed that long. CF said they want to reopen when there is a manageable number of days left in the season. That likely means imo if they can't open mid July, they won't open at all. 

    I guess it means what they mean by season?  To me winter fest is a completely different than the main season.  T

  5. I think we are getting pretty close to the point of return. I think the park will remain closed likely to Winterfest depending on a vaccine. Rumor has it United States have ordered 300,000,000 doses of a possible vaccine. Six Flags might actually get to open up a new coaster with the park!

  6. Im not going to personally rush to a park as soon as they open. We are going to wait until we see low case numbers and new restrictions are lifted. Until then we are just going on for needs. My wife has found a new liking to carry out and has no want to dine in restaurants anymore.

    Option 3 works if Passholders are allowed to make reservations prior to ticket sales.

    Option 1 and 4 make absolutely no sense to me.  Obvious wrong answer on the SAT.  Scratch them off.  

    I don’t like option 2 but could be accomplished with wristbands.  Anyone with a blue wristband and not a red one after 4 gets a 60 day ban or you have to wrestle a hungry tiger.  


    That sucks.   Was the person wearing a mask?  Did you get tested?  Are you in a 14 day quarantine?  How are your wife and kids taking it?  

    We all got tested beside by wife. We have been in quarantine. They were not wearing a mask but luckily we had no close contact. Kiddos are did better with the test than they have been dealing with not being in school. We just took our test today and now waiting results.

  8. I may have been exposed to the virus last Saturday (just found out this information yesterday). I am experiencing no symptoms currently and the person I know who tested positive is asymptotic.  The Dr said my chance of exposure was low since we maintained distance from the person and were out doors. Wish us luck!

  9. I would like to see a B&M flyer. A large one that would be in the same scale as Tatsu. With that being said I think as some point we will see a launched multi-looper in the spot. It seems to make the most sense right now.

    Are you trolling?  The reason for the low numbers are due to social distancing.  If that would have started earlier in NYC their numbers would be substantial lower.

    The predictions were based on social full distancing. 

  11. It's not even about riding a roller coaster. The death rates have been less than a mild flew season. Think about all the lives your a destroying by keeping the economy closed. There are people likely commuting suicide rom depression, people not getting needed surgeries or screening test because they need the bed space. I have read multiple people not getting cancer treatments because the hospital is waiting to fill the bed with a COVID19 victim.
