    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

  2. 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!

  3. 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.

  5. 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!

  6. 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. 

  8. 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.

    Good thing they had kind of a “meh” year for investments. Imagine buying a pass anticipating a new ride and they were like LOL JK we aren’t doing that anymore. They actually did that with a dark ride under the old Six Flags in the early 2000’s if I recall. 

    They basically did that with West Coast Racers. Maybe with the delay New Jersey Devil will open with the park.

    I thought this was telling and also was applicable to this thread....CF should be having a Q1 statement soon as well that should provide some additional thoughts on where their thinking is....


    I wonder how much cost they would have with extended down time. You would have security and maintenance to pay. Oh and of course all the big wigs. 

  11. I am probably in the minority here bur if we would have let this virus run its course we if would be almost over with now and the economy would still be booming.  We could take precautions but to shut every thing down you are ruining peoples lives.  Think about the small businesses.(the backbone of the economy by the way).  Joe Blow down the street starting out young family just purchased his first home and now sunk $20,000 in starting a new diner along a popular highway (which likely would have been very successful) is now forced to close.  Joe Blow loses his house, savings and is no long spending money elsewhere and his employees are now jobless.  This scenario is playing out all over the country.  The government is trying to help buy giving everyone a stimulus check of $1,200.  That is not enough to make most house payments for a single month.  Its not going to help not to mention what is that going to do with inflation?  I far fear the economic impacts over the health impacts this is has caused.  Cigarettes kill more people in a year and we willingly sell that over the counter the only difference is this effects the rich and famous and we have no way of controlling it.

    No need to blast me, because I know, I know...the park isn't going to open for a ton of reasons---reasons I understand and whole-heartedly agree with. However, all the data I've seen suggests the park could safely be opened for those under 30 who are healthy, so long as it is also staffed by healthy folks under 30. And so long as the rest of us stay the hell away from them. Folks of this age are more likely to die of something else. 

    The casualty rate for those over 50 is so high compared to those under 50. I don't expect KI to set an age limit, but I think the country as a whole is really going to be evaluating who we let go to work, and who we tell to stay home. This lockdown-for-all thing is not going to happen until a vaccine arrives. We are going to see different rules for different people and different things. Because the science dictates it.

    COVID19 can and does attack younger people. The can kill them as well. 

  13. Probably not going to happen but I was thinking outside the box. Im not sure if this would even be allowed under the current restrictions. 

    One of my favorite things about going to an amusement park is eating some of the crappy food. What if KI was able to set up tents so we could use our food passes and purchase some of that famous blue Ice cream or funnel cakes. They could even run test cycles of some of the rides here and there to keep ya entertained while we consume our amusement park food in our cars.
