  1. Maybe it was in Action Zone & not near Beast.....it's been a long time!
  2. I was quite excited which made my soon-to-be wife excited as well since we continuously talked about it after seeing "the box" near Beast in 1999. This was to be the ride that put KI back on top of my list of favorite parks (Paramount really left a bad taste in my mouth). We get both MF & SoB in the same year as our wedding as well as a 2 week honeymoon at Disney with side trips to BGT & Universal. 2000 was going to be EPIC. After 6 frustrating trips from Erie to KI (similar to my young experience with The Bat), we finally made it on SoB. Ride opened late morning & we
  3. Bolded for emphasis. This definitely made me chuckle......
  4. "Flattening the curve" means slowing the spread of covid. https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/eid/article/26/8/20-1093_article Times like this need as many bright spots as possible. After it was announced that the daily deaths related to covid reached 1000 in the US for the first time since May, the president finally came out to acknowledge cases are increasing and masks do help prevent the spread. Hopefully those discounting the numbers will start respecting the spread and do what is necessary to again slow it down.
  5. The endgame is some hate to deal with the black & white numbers vs. what is believed to be "likely" and proclaim it as fact. The curve was previously flattened- when people were taking necessary precautions. Now that people who believe the numbers are not real stopped caring about those same precautions the curve has increased past the level before flattening the curve was even a thing.
  6. Per your source: 191,392 laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 cases 20,141 deaths= 10.52% mortality rate.
  7. Eliminating the "estimating" side of things for COVID: US mortality rate is 3.7% (3,761,362 total cases/ 140,157 deaths) https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/cases-updates/cases-in-us.html Worldwide mortality rate is 4.1%
  8. Is the coronavirus political? Only if you want it to be. Just a small tidbit: if it is political, this would mark the first time in World history that all countries can actually agree on something- the virus has many fatalities and we still know little about it. There is nothing in the constitution that prevents a city, state, or business from requiring you from wearing a mask. Saying BLM does not mean that you think all lives do not matter. Saying hug a tree does not mean you don't like bushes. The confederate flag represents the darkest time in our nation's history where th
  9. ^ You are taking it personal. Don't. This is a whole new World for everyone, including the park(s). The park system as we used to know it under the current restraints will likely fail more than succeed. I implore patience with park visits this year. With all the uncertainties this year, every park should have eliminated their version of Fastpass/ Fastlane etc. The park would have either made you whole for the money spent, or extended the Fastlane availability to 2021 (when hopefully everything is normal again).
  10. That was a well done post- insightful & honest. I expect many experiences to be similar, not only with CP, but most parks.
  11. It is really quite simple: If you do not want to wear a mask at a place of business that requires a mask, don't go. Please understand though- DO NOT cause a scene because an employee has asked you to put the required mask on. You are an adult that made an adult decision to enter the business that required wearing a mask. The employee is simply doing their required job. If you cause a scene with an employee that asked you to put your mask on it should trigger an IMMEDIATE REMOVAL from the premises (do not pass GO, do not collect $200). Have a nice day!
  12. Tokyo Olympics postponed. https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/olympics/2020/03/23/olympics-2020-ioc-member-tokyo-games-postponed-dick-pound-coronavirus/2899848001/
  13. My oldest daughter was diagnosed with autism at 18 months. We (wife & I) were initially devastated thinking 'Rain Man'. After some input, where we learned A TON, from medical professionals we found that she was just a tick over the autism scale & there was a chance that most would not notice her "condition" when she was older. At that point, we made a commitment that we were going to treat her like a normal kid so that she would not use the diagnosis as a crutch. I am happy & proud to say that 18-ish years later she is a college student that graduated cum laude from high sc
  14. Uncertainty surrounds everything right now. When the parks finally open, it may be in a reduced capacity as there is no way to predict how many will be coming through the gates. The fear of the virus will continue to spread long after businesses open back up.
  15. There is the compensation! Season pass cost reimbursement will be in the form of in TP not being used in the parks...........
