  1. I hear you there, looking forward to visiting this season! Not concerned with being outdoors in crowds, but I'm also one of those people that has been deemed "essential" (expendable?) in a position where I work with the general public all day. I have managed to not only stay COVID free, so I'm not really feeling the discomfort that others are.
  2. I'm starting to look forward to the start of the season... almost. The issue I have this year, is the same as last. The social climate that has developed in this country makes me sick. Last year is was masks, this year it's vaccines. The main reason why I have a little more excitement this year than last, is that the vaccine isn't displayed for everyone to see, so the arguing shouldn't be as frequent... shouldn't be at least.
  3. I'm sure you won't find anyone that will tell you to remove a mask at any park. Honestly, I'm pretty certain that you won't be alone either. There's been a following built in mask wearing now that I think we will see for years to come. Flu seasons, cold seasons, etc, you will see people wearing their masks everywhere they go.
  4. Makes you wonder too, now the the original poster is 34 or 35 years old, are the sentiments the same? Its fun to bring back some of these decade old posts.
  5. KI hired security? Sure, it is their job to insure the security of their guests. The 18 year old kid at a ride, or a food stand? No. The main issue I've had is that the government sets forth a rule, and then leaves it on employees of businesses to be responsible for making people abide by it. Your analogy would be, the state sets forth a speed limit, and it's now our job as fellow drivers to make sure people adhere to that speed limit. I'm not getting in verbal/ physical altercations with people that refuse to wear masks. As a matter of fact, here at work, I've had numerous people ask me "are
  6. I'm frankly a bit concerned about the vaccine. I fear for it. We are rushing too much to be the first country to put one out, and unfortunately, that's going to pan out to be a hurried vaccine hitting the market. I think I may sit out round 1 to see if it's even effective or safe. Once I've seen some type of evidence that it's actually working, and safe, I may be a little more on with the idea. Call it cautious optimism I suppose.
  7. Their safety record, rather good or bad, was overshadowed by one of their own PR people effectively saying we're going to end up killing some people with rides, but we just need to find the appropriate number of people to kill. I can't remember the exact statement, but it's out there on the internet somewhere. Edited to add: https://www.courant.com/news/connecticut/hc-xpm-2004-05-04-0405040040-story.html
  8. See, that's a part I'm concerned about.... I am one of those people that makes friends with everyone when I'm out in public. You hear about those kind of people that "never met a stranger", but I can tell you I am actually one of those people. When I'm in line for rides, I never fail to strike up a conversation with someone. I refuse to spend my day at a park staring at a phone screen. I feel like I'll be stripped of my making friends in lines by the physical distancing, but I'm still stoked to get to go.
  9. I'm considering a trip this weekend. With rain in the forecast, it may end up being to my advantage, as I don't care if I'm walking around in the rain, and will ride whatever in the rain. Hopefully it pans out to lower crowds.
  10. I think that information gets shared like that because people just can't actually wrap their heads around the idea of something like this happening, because we've never seen anything like this in any of our lifetimes. The reporting of information has been nearly criminal in my opinion. So much misinformation is allowed to just stream out to everyone, and due to social media, it spreads like wildfire.
  11. Wow, 52 cases is cause for concern.... meanwhile in Florida, I think I saw 15k cases or something like that? Yeah, given the differences in what people find alarming, I doubt we will see anything close here in the good ol' USA
  12. If that's not a sign of the times..... Shot glasses and ashtrays featuring the KI logo!! If you could come up with a Brandy Snifter with the KI logo, we could have a party.
  13. I suppose this probably squashes the conspiracy theory that Cedar Fair doesn't want footage of how many people are in the park... which is disturbingly sparse looking watching the cams.
