    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. 

  3. 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. 

  5. 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.

    They also did not extend their season passes to apply thru 2021.  At least for now, they are planning on offering season pass holders additional benefits in terms of free tickets and cash to be used in the park.

    Holiday World likely couldn't afford to extend season passes. I would think they don't have as much flexibility in thier financial as say Cedar Fair.

    To be fair, this is why I said "as expected" and why I also I speculated that KI's wording would be different because KBF is a year-round park a few pages ago. 

    What about those with platinum passes Who has planned to go to Knotts.

    Feel like they dropped the ball and did not announce passes be good through 2021.  

    They haven't missed any operating days yet. When it gets to be so far along and the park is still closed they will likely extend them to 2021. The park is obviously still holding hope for a 2020 season.

  9. Here is my thinking currently and what my family and I are planning this summer

    We are preparing our selfs for closure of all the parks this summer. We spend a lot of summer at the parks over 50 visits. We are hoping maybe the parks will be able to open for winter fest/ and maybe open up early Spring time next year. If our passes are comped we are considering upgrading our passes to season long Fast Lane. 

    We as a family have a kit $1300 invested in our passes this season and Im sure all the parks want to open to get more of our money. It has to be hard to make the call because the parks are losing a lot more money and they have a lot more at steak. They will open when it's safe.

    I think those powerlines are the biggest thing holding the water park back from expansion. Other than that I agree a water coaster would be nice. You just have to wonder if the chain is going to invest more in their in-park water parks or not. KI doesn't really have any competition when it comes to waterparks except for maybe Coney Island. 

    So to sum it up I'm personally happy with it but there's always room for improvement. It would be cool to see a water coaster, another lazy river, and other additions but that's up to the company to decide on whether to invest more or not.

    I wonder what it cost for the park to bury or move those lines.  That is really a prime real estate for the water park going to waste. I find the water park too spread out and walking bare foot on hot concrete hurts.  I think it could be worth while to add more shade in the main pathways or find a way to mist the concrete to keep them cool.

    I, for one, can deal with this. I'm sure (I hope :unsure:) the thermometers used are sanitized with each use, though. Other than that, I will be happy riding The Bat, Orion, Adventure Express, The Beast and everything else that manages to open. Though it would put a damper on the new Area 72 if FOF didn't open with the park... Also, would Festhaus be open... many questions here...

    I would think they would use the laser thermometers.
