  1. CF could buy the Seaworld parks and convert the marine life areas to a water park. I think I saw that strategy play out somewhere before; it didn't turn out well as I recall. CF would have zero interest in any parks of the brand (SW or BG); they have no history in dealing with animals (marine or land)- or complicated landscaping designs. That's really not a knock on them- it just isn't part of their DNA.
  2. We're going back at the end of Feb. I hear they've increased capacity- is that right?
  3. It would be a unique/innovative addition. However, a couple things come to mind. At knott's, the utilities (electric) is fairly accessible because the course runs close to the main areas of the park. KI would have to do quite a bit of rigging to get power lines where they would need to be. Cost/benefit would likely come into play. Secondly- KI doesn't have the greatest track record when it comes to maintaining theming elements. That said, next $30M project (you know, in 10 years- long after pandemic...)- don't. spend half of that and create a themed immersion experience in the TRT
  4. we do... but transmission for Polio is a "little bit" different. COVID is an airborne virus and transmits as easy as the Common Cold and Chicken Pox, for instance. Common cold predominantly treated with therapeutics and over-the-counter, but still very present. Chicken Pox is very contagious but mostly contained... they used to have chicken pox parties when I was younger- it's mostly uncommon and prevented by a vaccine. COVID will probably land somewhere in between the those two. Both are viruses that are still around, but risk-managed. Herd immunity, prescriptive medicine, and con
  5. Oh, and a few posts ago- Disney's MK had passengers on all rows of their rides when we went in September. I don't think that's changed.
  6. https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/us/ and https://www.cdc.gov
  7. Truth is, we will never be fully "rid" of COVID. So... we're going to have to learn to live with and manage it. We can beat it down with herd immunity- but it isn't something we'll ever be 100% rid of. Measles is still around. Mumps is still around. Common Cold (a coronavirus) is still around. The best thing that has happened is the development of the Vaccine, yes- but also therapeutics have come a long way in a short time. For some- the treatments, when addressed immediately, have resulted in the virus being neutralized within 2-3 days- in otherwise healthy people. Going forward,
  8. and I think therein lies the first and final nail to the coffin of hopes for a 2020 Winterfest/Holiday event. See you in 2021.
  9. I agree; though I'm not sure why they keep making a point to make the distinction. I would think that as 2020 goes.... everything has been under a different set of rules. Only if someone has been on the moon with their head deep in moon rock facing the other direction would anyone not know this...
  10. again, Kings Island could do it and be a money maker.
  11. Was in Mason earlier when I saw the original post and drive past park on way home. Drove past and thought... "Hoax." Then noticed the hooks (for the star)... and then noticed that the lights going down really get lost in the sunlight. Hoping the lights on the star are finally bright enough to see outside the parking lot. Probably not an indication of a winter event, though it would be a pleasant surprise. They did clear the Fall stuff out FAST though. They still had Christmas things up/out in March earlier this year.
  12. I would think that if they were only going to light the tower (which would be nice....)- they would have made that announcement because something like this would take on a life of its own.... Maybe a "hey, because 2020 has sucked for us all- even though we won't be open, we're doing this..."
  13. Cincinnati weather through December is generally manageable. You have the sporadic 60 degree days in early Dec. and things don't typically get dicey until the end of Dec.- which by the 2020 Dec Calendar, they would be closed before Christmas anyway. It just seems like a waste of lost revenue. Saturday's in October have been very well attended and as it has gotten colder, more and more of people's physical appearance is covered; not to mention, masks are then more bearable to wear. Just seems that if they had plugged forward, even with fewer shows- they could have had near-equal attend
  14. not sure why they cannot try this. They could have done Winterfest...
