  1. I see. That is a completely different circumstance. I'd hope they could just do the right thing and roll your pass to the following year or refund your money given the circumstances. Of course the decision is totally up to you.
  2. I don't know you are or what you do, but you work too hard to be giving charity to amusement parks! Guys once again I don't foresee this being an issue. Kings Island is smart enough to keep the passholders happy. I'm sure whatever situation arises they'll make it right.
  3. I can't imagine losing a home and irreplaceable things like family photos. It has to be the worst physical thing that someone can lose. I can say now at least for me I'll consider pandemics we can't treat well as a new possibility in my mind. I was a kid when 9/11 happened, but I'd imagine and people can attest to this or not, but I'd imagine most Americans did not think of the possibility of terrorism happening to them. Now I see it as at least a possibility and I think I'll think similarly about a largely untreatable pandemic.
  4. I've heard similar stories about the generation who lived through the Depression. They always would act as if there might not be a next meal because for many years there wasn't one for a while. Thankfully, I don't think this will reach the hardship levels of the Great Depression which itself became a way of life for over a decade. I was thinking about that generation myself when I made the post. Thanks for sharing!
  5. That's an interesting topic to think about. Are you guys thinking this more in terms of government or everyday people? I think it's effects on everyday people may be more interesting. Will people that lived through it always keep a bigger store of supplies? Well they value small things they take for granted? People do tend to have short memories though. 9/11 irrevocably changed the world in some regards. I can't see a low flying plane without just for a bit thinking it might be hijacked. However, I'd say the unity and togetherness after that day dissapated relatively quickly unfortunately.
  6. You're using common sense. They're not going to slam the gate and say, "We got you suckers! See you next year!" Everybody give the park a 'lil' credit!
  7. If they wanted to, they could do it in a heartbeat. If they can arrest people out illegally in a level 3 snow emergency, a virus would not be much different. *I don't yet expect this to happen, but it is a possibility.
  8. In that scenario you likely wouldn't be safe going to any public place or your workplace. If Coronavirus got that bad in this area, amusement parks would not be on your mind. Just take it all in stride. I would not get too worried at this point.
  9. It was worth a shot. I wonder if it was a price issue, the condition the park was in, or that Indiana Beach just wasn't making the money Fun Spot was wanting. I wouldn't completely rule out a deal happening since someone would probably make one last offer before they sell everything off.
  10. If they are willing to just do an asset sell off, I can't imagine that the park itself will cost a ton of money. This would be wonderful if it happens. There's way too many parks closing out there and not enough opening!
  11. I wish Ed Hart could swoop in. He's done an excellent job with saving and revitalizing Kentucky Kingdom.
  12. Indiana Beach is one of the more enjoyable parks I've been to out of many. I've been there 3 times and it was always really fun and enjoyable. It has a totally unique feel and is very memorable. The greatest attribute of the park was the location. It was always cooler than other parks because of the wind off of the lake. The criss-crossing rides and shops packed underneath rides made for a very unique experience. Wild Hawg is a good coaster. Hoosier Hurricane is very good, and Cornball Express (the one time I was there when it was running) was great. This was the last place I could play Fascination. The loss of those tables is a tragedy in and of itself. Dr. Frankenstein's Castle was, next to Noah's Ark, the best walk through attraction in the country. I really hope someone steps up to buy it, but I know that the chances are not great.
  13. ^ Congo Falls too. And like I said, Timberwolf if they want to go that route.
  14. I'm not trying to be a stick in the mud, but I don't think that Area 72 (formerly X-Base, and previously Fort Kinzel, and before that Fort Cooper), is a good place for potential park expansion. There is one way in and one way out bottleneck that creates a lot of congestion on the busiest days. If somehow it could be expanded to the length of The Racer, and connected with that second pathway its feasible, but still not ideal. If they want to expand, and it's been 20 years so maybe they don't, I would do it in Action Zone by better utilizing the existing space and removing Timberwolf.
  15. I'd love a Black forest themed Action Zone with a renewed Oktoberfest. I'd like to see more emphasis on the theming of the areas in general with area specific foods, music and costumes.
