  1. I appreciate the post, but this is a typical statement to investors. Things are all good, here's what we're doing to be great...yadda yadda. Meanwhile the truth is their parks are closed, and they have no customers, and a ghost crew. Meh.
  2. This is why I think KI will open whenever they can. It might not be until October, but the park would be slammed, and they'd be making money. Could extend the Haunt season into November and move straight into Winterfest. They might even open early in 2021---who knows? Once this covid-19 is over (or maybe even if it's not over) people are going to be looking for places to go. So KI can let people go elsewhere...or they can open the park and do the best they can. Of course A LOT of this is completely hypothetical right now.
  3. Me too. I'm working, so I'm expendable---err, essential. The public is informed or should be. Let's ride!
  4. Reading this thread it's hard to imagine a time when people rode coasters and even drove their cars to the park with small children not buckled in. I used to ride Beast when it had a simple lap-bar that came down across all riders. Now we're trying to figure out no-contact belt checks, facemasks for everyone, and every-other-row seating. And don't scream going down the hill because that might spread droplets. UGH.
  5. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/japanese-theme-parks-will-urge-guests-not-to-make-loud-noises-on-roller-coasters-upon-reopening/ar-BB14IcZ5 If requested at KI, I guess we can all stay silent and just do jazz hands as we go down Orion's first monster drop. Riiiiight. ;-)
  6. I'm guessing we just need some reliable data about the virus spread outdoors. And it'll arrive soon I would think. Literally everything I've read up to today suggests it almost always spreads indoors. Not so much outdoors when it's hot and humid out. We'll see. Been loosening things up in Indiana for about three weeks now, and cases and deaths both trending down versus the peak in mid-late April.
  7. Wish DeWine would say what he is waiting for exactly. Indiana and Ohio have almost identical numbers of positive cases, and Ohio is almost 2x the population of Indiana. So one could say Indiana is in worse shape, but...Holcomb is letting Holiday World and Indiana Beach open up in June. Unless he changes his mind, but I kinda doubt it. It just all seems willy-nilly unless they let us know what they're really looking for.
  8. I'm going to give some extra space to guests ahead of me on the stairs on rides like Banshee, Diamondback, and Mystic Timbers. Honestly though I try not to ride up on folks in line anyhow. A few extra feet of spacing shouldn't be that difficult. Let those microbes (wherever they came from) some room to disperse. :-) https://www.forbes.com/sites/brucelee/2020/04/27/can-farts-transmit-covid-19-coronavirus-here-is-what-is-being-said/#529031e9310f
  9. I can only speak to Indiana, but today the governor slightly accelerated opening things up. In our state we do not have what one would call a health "crisis". It's a situation---we all know it's a situation---but the hospitals by no means are packed. And they certainly aren't packed with Covid-19 people. Holiday World and Indiana Beach are opening in June, and this weekend so is the beach at Indiana Dunes. And it sounds like Universal Orlando is also ready to go. I think cancelling Haunt or Winterfest is premature to say the least. At least if people are kept outdoors.
  10. My apologies if this has already been discussed, but saw this today. https://www.sfgate.com/news/article/Disney-Springs-reopening-comes-with-a-warning-15278259.php “By visiting Disney Springs you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19."
  11. Oh they do! Yes. I am familiar with their secure portal personally. Good point. I do not know for sure if this would have changed his situation to be honest. It might have? It was IU Health.
  12. My brother-in-law got tested for Covid-19 about 2-3 weeks ago. He had to provide his negative paperwork to go back to work and asked the hospital to email him his negative. They said, "we can only fax it to you". Pffft. He had to go back into the facility just to pickup the paperwork because they would not and could not email it to him.. Absurd! But...very real.
  13. Something relevant to my work. https://apnews.com/aff923bc384089489d168ee2ced71a93 I've been trying to get rid of the fax machine at school for 10 years. The nurse requires it. Because in Indiana the hospitals and state still think fax is "secure". It's really sad. But this virus has exposed the sadness even more.
  14. You probably could actually. Accuracy...meh. FDA fast-track!
