Coronavirus Impacting Theme Parks

Recommended Posts

I got a Knott's post via FB saying they closed for weather.  Nothing about the virus though.

I don’t expect it to last for long. I found out that the virus is dying down in China. I can’t remember what the source is, but I’m hoping that the virus dies down here soon

This can't be a serious post can it? America's response to this emergency has been pathetic. Our President called it a HOAX, purposely prevented health professionals from getting a jump on it because he is worried about reelection, and slashed CDC funding. Only 8 people in the ENTIRE country were tested yesterday despite tens of thousands being tested in countries like South Korea. EVERY major sport here are CANCELLING their seasons. I suggest you get informed. This is too serious not to.

Ultimately the source is the authoritarian communist government of China.   So on a scale of 1-10 how do you rate the Chinese govt on truthfulness?

This info isn’t from China, its from stats. 
I would like to state my mistake on me saying it was dying down in people catching it. It’s dying down in death rates.

Do you think are we going to see more rides removed at Cedar Fair parks to make up for the decreased revenue and attendance the parks will likely experience?

Absolutely not, rides are a long term investment.  This is a short term issue.

Besides they would have to trash them, the whole industry is in the same boat right now so there are not going to be buyers.

Agreed, worst case scenario we may see some things like future expansions pushed in date, or events being cut back (although not removed) in a bit to make up for things (Like haunt)

Did the 2008 recession have anything to do with Cedar Point going 6 years between Maverick and GateKeeper? 

Cedar Fair was focusing their efforts on integrating the Paramount parks and were installing major coasters at those parks during that time.

Found this video from Amusement Insiders about how Coronavirus could impact the amusement industry. Thoughts??

 

After delaying my response. I think it's safe to say that it will make an impact.

If Knotts is truely open it could be a good time to go if your not scared of the viruses.  Flights to LAX from CVG are about $60.00.
