  1. People with vaccines are now catching it because of the unvaccinated allowing it to mutate Cedar Fair is now taking 0 precautions because they think they need the lowest level of humanity to turn a profit. Cheap season passes you know. At least at Winterfest one can walk around, see the lights and avoid the covid breathers at the buffets and packed indoors.
  2. Carowinds and Kings Dominion have 2 or 3 more weekends of Winterfest opening earlier and closing Jan 2. Ki again has less operating time despite higher attendance. No thanks to buffets and indoor shows with current conditions. Mgmt is pretending there is no problem.
  3. Isn’t it interesting though that is worthwhile crowd wise at the other parks, but Ki can’t make it work.
  4. They also cut Haunted Homecoming from the live entertainment. The budget cuts in entertainment are purely to make more profit with a lesser guest experience. They sure didn’t cut live entertainment for pandemic reasons. There are no pandemic protocols left… All these cuts result in a crowded park with fewer attractions and a worse guest experience. They won’t maintain pass sales with that formula.
  5. Avalanche at Kings Dominion is an excellent ride. It’s a great coaster for those that don’t like drops and it’s still thrilling with its high banked turns. It’s also fast loading. A longer version with more trains would be a good capability ride.
  6. It’s interesting that Cedar Point and Kings Dominion are open until 10PM on Sundays this fall and Carowinds Canada’s Wonderiand until midnight. While KI, with its high attendance, closes at 8.
  7. Planet Snoopy is run down. Hardly and trees. No quality dark ride. Poorly themed to the same handful of characters It doesn’t deserve an award. Orion was built for the 300 ft marketing but they only built 3/4 of a ride. Not deserving. Overall it’s not a very nice park. It feels dated, total lack of shade. Cedar Fair budget cuts are obvious this year. It’s sliding back into the Paramount days.
  8. There was water leaking there all season long. They are just finally now fixing it. Probably because of their cash flow issues.
  9. Cedar Fair list $47 million dollars in the 2nd quarter with their failed cheap season pass business plan
  10. now we have coronavirus as bad as it’s ever been even though we have vaccinations And the theme parks have their eyes and ears covered like nothing is wrong. I believe that Cedar Fair, six flags, and sea world will be bankrupt within a year because of the continued upward trend of this virus And they probably deserve it since they are taking no responsibility to protect their employees and customers now
  11. Why would they want to keep them open? Cedar Fair is all about cheap season passes and a low quality, overcrowded experience. If they have more drink stations open that means people on the drink plan will take more drinks and less profits for them. That’s how they operate now
  12. They are underselling (price) /overselling (quantity = long lines) their product chain wide. I singled out Taft as where they have done some good things. Namely putting the theming back into the parks with their new additions. I guess Knotts could be added to that list. The others are more or less generic parks and WoF doesn’t get much love. Its a shame they are taking the Six Flags approach selling passes. Hopefully the parks don’t end up as crappy as SF parks.
  13. The removal of Skyline, Subway and LaRosas replaced by ANYTHING that is barely edible would be an improvement
  14. Don’t expect much from Cedar Fair coming in the near future. They are low on cash and still losing money as of the last quarter Selling cheap unprofitable season passes and dining plans whike overcrowding parks is not a good business model. Thry are already pushing 2022 passes at rock bottom prices and giving away a lot of 2021 with them in their desperation for cash. They have done some great things in the Taft parks recently but they apparently don’t feel they have a valuable product.
