  1. We are going on July 4th. Last year was so much fun. I suspect this year the park will feel kind of empty, because of reduced park capacity and everyone queuing for Orion Well, hopefully the queues aren't unbearable. But if they are, my daughter and I will get some exercise, spin PokeStops, and enjoy the fireworks. Added bonus, we can enjoy fireworks while social distancing.
  2. If we look at deaths because the numbers are more accurate. About 1,155 people died in road accidental last year in Ohio. So, about 96 deaths per month. Over the last month, Ohio had about 800 COVID-19 deaths. About 15% of those deaths are people aged 60 years and younger (age group of people visiting KI?) So, that is about 120 deaths per month for people under 60 years. Assuming people spend as much time driving to KI as being there, based on exposure time a person is more likely to die of COVID-19. The point is that exposure to COVID-19 increases by visiting KI. However, there are many other risks people accept daily. I will enjoy KI this summer, regardless of the safety and health risks of traveling and being there.
  3. Agreed, I doubt we will hear from WLWT5 of people contracting COVID-19 at KI. Generally, we don't hear where people catch the virus from.
  4. I agree, masks are generally for prevention, not protection. As long as everyone wears a mask per CDC guidelines (rated for a 80 to 90 mph wind speed) we are safer. That said, I'll be at KI riding coasters in July and beyond. Statistically, we're more likely to be injured driving to KI and home than contracting COVID-19.
  5. For the steel coasters, I am going with Diamondback. There is never a dull moment on this ride. The front row and back row also have very different ride experiences. Maybe once I ride Orion, my choice will change. But from the POV videos, Orion appears to be a long-lost big brother of Diamondback. Banshee front row is awesome, but other rows limit your view to the back of the chair in front of you. Enjoy the ride by closing your eyes and counting the inversions as you experience them.
  6. Social distancing and wearing masks are principles that help prevent inhalation of droplets emitted through sneezes and cough of an asymptomatic person. These principals cannot work on a roller coaster train traveling at speed, where riders immediately pass through the air expelled by riders in front of them.
  7. If Orion runs at its 1,650 rides per hour capacity, family members standing in pairs and six feet apart could be queuing into the main parking lot.
  8. My 2020 Season Pass Fast Lane Plus – EZ Pay terms and conditions state that Cedar Fair reserves the right to refuse admission and control occupancy. I see initially suspending FL(P) for a month or so could be deemed as necessary occupancy control. And with COVID-19, “We are all in this Together”. So, I’m not expecting to benefit from FLP this season.
  9. With social distancing policies in place, there’ll be no demand for No-Boo necklaces and Halloween Haunt would become financially nonviable.
