  1. Any new coaster that is not mostly in the woods is a horrendous misuse of KI's geography MTV the Grind was KI's cultural apex
  2. The bluegrass versions of pop songs are kind of cool TBH. Personally, I'd like 90s pop, 80s new wave and pop, classic rock and jammy stuff like the Grateful Dead and Allmans...but that is just me. Also, 'Bittersweet Symphony' should always be played at closing time.
  3. Booked 3 nights at a Lighthouse Point cottage for August...can't wait. Kids have never been and should hopefully be at least 52'' by then!
  4. Thanks--Looks like that promo isn't good for the Lighthouse Point cabins but that's OK....still basically a wash for upgrading to Platinum vs. getting the package that's probably what we'll do. Appreciate it!
  5. Not to hijack--but I have a similar question. The family and I are planning a trip to CP to stay on-site (cottage). We have KI Gold Passes and it looks like it may be a wash to upgrade to Platinum and just pay for our lodging. About how much is it to upgrade (what I saw was ~$80--does that sound right? Also, when booking lodging at CP, is there any discount if you are a passholder? Thanks!!
  6. It's really hard to enjoy yourself there TBH. Every time there it has been extremely crowded which is made worse by not running the slides at full capacity. Add in the criminal lack of shade and it makes me typically skip the whole place. I don't really have a solution, and I'd love for it to be an enjoyable water park, but compared to places like HW it is night and day.
  7. Exactly--it's all about the volume of shared air. Masks decrease the amount of shared airborne particles.
  8. Favorite-Beast is truly a one of a kind, a huge part of my childhood, and always an amazing ride. Least-Invertigo..rough and nearly unrideable IMO
  9. So how are the actual queues going to be handled distance wise? All the cleaning, etc. is great-but the primary way this is transmitted is through breathing other people's air (hence the masks)--and cases have shown that what it can take up to 15 min. of being in close proximity to someone to be exposed--which is exactly what happens when waiting in line. Just curious how they'll get around this
  10. Exactly. The problem is that unless people see this as an actual issue (not just a bunch of annoying rules), the guidelines won't work. If we want to move on with life, then we all need to do our part to stifle the spread--especially if we want to gather at amusement parks, etc.
  11. Only in America does encouraging the public to contribute to public health get condemned as 'virtue signaling' ..lord I hate that word. Let's face it-we're a young and immature nation with very little sense of civic responsibility because we've never known true desperation (famine, war on our own soil, military oppression, etc.) Of course people don't want to wear masks-why would they? Amusement parks are a luxury-not a right. If KI is serious about guest safety, they'll have a zero tolerance policy. Someone gets caught without a mask-the park gets shut down. Positive peer pressure FTW.
  12. True that-But a big part is supporting the actual parishes communities...many would feel like KI is ripping off spiritual practice for their own gains.
  13. More people would resume their normal routine if other people didn't see public health measures as affront to their 'personal freedom'. The people that are going back to restaurants, etc. now are the ones who never thought this was a real issue to begin with-so there's no masks, no distance, etc...which will in turn keep cautious people from even wanting to mess with it. While outdoor parks should be safer-I'm still not sure if I'm going to KI this year. The park can implement whatever policy it wants, but if guests see it all as just a big annoyance and not a real thing, then no measures will
  14. I get it about a lack of IP. Plus, Cedar Fair seems to be more about thrill rides in general. That said, I would love an addition or a re-design of Boo Blasters. I'd really like a dark ride that was straight up scary. I was really impressed with Gobbler Getaway at Holiday World--It was a lot of fun for everyone with a great narrative that was easy to follow.
  15. This is why I basically trust no one and will be staying away from crowded public places AMAP. I'm glad my kids' summer camp is running because we need the care-but as long as i can camp and play golf I'm going to chill for a bit.
