  1. Are you serious? Okay, let me put it this way. In their app, in that card on that screen, they are advertising that they are selling tickets and passes for their park. That's it. They are not advertising a specific ride on that screen. For info on the rides available at the park, there are screens that list the names, basic description and stats for some, and location within the park. There is even an interactive map that helps you find rides, attractions, and services within the park. No name or description of the generic ride design shown on the card that's pushing
  2. I'm pretty sure that tickets and passes for Kings Island are available to be bought through their app, so, no..
  3. Easy, Mean Streak. With how violent it was, it's the only ride I've ever been glad it was over.
  4. Yep. The two options are all parks or just the one you purchase it at. It doesn't matter where you got your pass from. Make sure you read the name of the product you're buying - it will specify if it's only for the "home park". That's not the park you got your pass from originally; it's the park you buy All Season Fast Lane at. If your pass is from Kings Island, and you only want All Season Fast Lane for Kings Island, that's where you have to buy it. If you only want it for Cedar Point, you have to buy it there. If you see the option for all parks, then you can add it to
  5. That would depend on if you're looking for All-Season Fast Lane for all parks or just one. You should be able to buy the chain-wide version from any park (that's currently selling it, like @disco2000 mentioned). If you're looking for just one park, you'll need to buy it from the park you want to use it at.
  6. The payment plan was for an experience that was not possible per the passholder's expectations at time of purchase. Yes, some parks did open in 2020 in a limited capacity, but it was nowhere near the same length of season, operating hours, or experience when in the park. For a variety of reasons, many passholders were unable to or otherwise chose not to use their passes in 2020 due to health and safety concerns. Due to pandemic-induced financial constraints, I have to imagine there would have been a substantial number of passholders electing to default on their payment plans as well. W
  7. It's really not that simple. Keep in mind that the intended target for a Platinum Pass from a given park is guests who will use that park as their primary or "home" park. Platinum Passes sold by Canada's Wonderland, then, would be intended (but not exclusively) sold to Ontario residents. It's basically a loophole for a US citizen to buy a Platinum Pass online from CW without visiting the park, gaming the exchange rate. With the US-Canadian border, closed, it's not like an Ontario resident could visit KI or CP, for instance, and there are no other CFEC parks in Canada. So why keep bill
  8. Further point of clarification - if a park did not open in 2020 and has not yet resumed billing on payment plans, you're still considered up-to-date. If, say, you have a Platinum Pass from Canada's Wonderland, your payment plan has been frozen since April 15. It was valid for use at the parks that did open this year (e.g. KI, CP), and you don't have to resume payments until some date announced by the park in the future.
  9. Just make sure your payment plan (if applicable) is up to date. All eligible 2020 Cedar Fair passes are to simply keep working in 2021 with the same features and benefits (including add-ons, e.g. dining).
  10. To paraphrase, with the preventative measures we're taking appearing to be highly effective, why don't we just throw them out with both the baby and the bathwater? You're also lumping the actions of many somewhat independent governments into one evil "the government". Michigan is taking different actions than Ohio, such as not implementing a COVID-19-only-comes-out-at-night curfew, for example.
  11. Yup. Looks like Cedar Fair had the exclusive rights to the IP for theme/amusement parks and CFEC + MoA couldn't come to a licensing deal, so the mall went with the Nickelodeon IP that CFEC abandoned when buying the Paramount Parks. https://www.startribune.com/camp-snoopy-who-nickelodeon-runs-the-show-now-at-mall-of-america/130570388/ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nickelodeon_Universe#Camp_Snoopy
  12. It's much too early to speculate on that, IMO. Like @IndyGuy4KI hinted at, requiring advanced reservations is likely to discourage guests, both passholders and daily ticket holders, from visiting. The park wants every bit of reduced capacity filled if possible; it's a business, after all. The reasons for the reservation system in the first place was to ensure that they didn't have more people show up than the park could handle under pandemic capacity restrictions. The arrival time windows were to prevent a large gathering outside of the gate of people waiting to go through the health a
  13. It would take way more than a complete, catastrophic cable failure for an elevator to become a free-fall Drop Tower. Roller coasters have anti-rollbacks on their lift hills; you better believe elevators have similar safety features. Basically, there's a brake that automatically engages when the cables fail to hold the weight of the elevator carriage. Elevators are incredibly safe; like roller coasters, it's much more likely it'll stop mid-cycle rather than suffer from any mechanical issue, certainly a free-fall. https://time.com/4700084/elevator-patent-history-otis-safety/ https:/
  14. Eh, Cedar Fair corporate likes to throw the word "cedar" in various names. The also like to have fun using thematic names from one park at another (e.g. Cedar Creek Flyers at Dorney Park, playing off Cedar Creek Mine Ride at CP). Cedar also makes you think of cedar trees, which makes you think of the woods. You're not actually camping in the woods, but that's the mindset they want to put you in.
  15. Yikes. If they really did board the plane showing obvious symptoms, and signed off that they had no symptoms and hadn't tested postiive, this isn't a good look for the family, United, or anyone at the airport. I can't imagine being a passenger on that flight.
