I probably have quiiite a while to wait. I'm 20 with no conditions that make me more vulnerable and do not work in healthcare. I can't lie, I'm a little jealous seeing you guys get your vaccines! :lol:

We're going back at the end of Feb.  I hear they've increased capacity- is that right?

 

There are reports that park capacity has been increased to 40% with the reintro of park hopping (you can park hop again, but can't enter a new park until 2 give or take a few mins, assuming the park has capacity. You don't need a reservation for any park after the first, but do need to check the app to make sure there's capacity (most of the time, yes)).  Disney hasn't said officially whether capacity has been upped.

First statement of the year from Knotts... Extending their passes into 2022 for every day they are closed in 2021. I wonder if they'll open at all this year. Awful. 

Knotts has had such awful luck. They finally opened for their Christmas event and then had to close 2 days later, and now they're still closed. Such a shame.

Another park falls victim to COVID, Conneaut Lake Park is filing for Bankruptcy.

 

RIP I never got to go but it looked like a fun park, I really hope someone can pull a Gene Staples and save this park

That is fake news or a clickbait headline. The park is already in bankrupcty and filed years ago. They have a buyer interested in buying the park but due to said bankruptcy that has already taken place they have to go through the court and accept other bids. It is still bad news because someone could buy it and build condos. https://www.facebook.com/newconneautlakepark

Looks like Disney will be keeping mask and social distancing protocols in place for the remainder of 2021, though they’re hoping to be able to drop them by 2022.

Six Flags Magic Mountain is announcing that they’re planning on reopening with rides running this spring. Maybe they know something we don’t about California easing restrictions to allow parks to open?

California's great america posted an opening date.

California is finally allowing amusement parks to reopen on April 1st. There are severe capacity limitations and only California residents will be allowed to attend, but it’s a step in the right direction. :)

And Dewine is hopeful that by independence day, the indians can have full stadiums. If all holds true, we should be able to have a somewhat normal mid summer/fall/hopefully winter season. Remember, it depends on vaccines.

And also Dewine is looking at dropping all restrictions when we drop below 50 cases per 100,000 for two weeks: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.wkyc.com/amp/article/news/health/coronavirus/ohio-governor-mike-dewine-covid-19-press-conference-mask-mandate-march-4/95-175c4e4f-991e-4005-bc06-19b3ece3b64b

I wand to get my vaccine.  I just have to wait until I become eligible to receive it.  I am 36 years old and do not fit into one of the groups that qualifies so far.  I work at an architecture firm, so that isn`t exactly high risk (especially since we are currently working remotely Monday, Wednesday and Friday and only in the office on Tuesdays and Thursdays). 

Hopefully, by the end of summer things will be looking more like normal.  I would love to go to KI and see full trains being loaded by the end of the summer season.  And hopefully Winterfest comes back this year!  My four year old son keeps talking about seeing the "Santa show" at KI in the Festhaus.
