Masks are required at the parks right now. We have hashed out your argument multiple times and there is no need to do it again. At this point in time, if you don't want to wear a mask and think t

It is really quite simple: If you do not want to wear a mask at a place of business that requires a mask, don't go. Please understand though- DO NOT cause a scene because an employee has asked yo

Yep, I was not very happy about that parking fee.

As of now there are over 3000+ cases in the Cincy region, with the number of cases growing exponentially. The parks in the region won’t reopen until the number of new cases have leveled and the total number of cases start to decrease.

You have to remember we are testing more and new cases are just being reported that could've been from days or weeks ago. The more we test the more cases we get.

 I would tend to agree with you @gforce1994 if scientists made these decisions. Here in Ohio the politicians have left it up to a task force of restaurant owners to decide when and how restaurants will open with a promise of no veto. I don’t see that changing with amusement parks.  Do you?

I have no idea who Eric Stonestreet is but we also met Taylor’s Mom.  Does that count?

LOL. Also why I don't do delivery much. For the $ I gotta pay for delivery plus tip I can get another order of breadsticks I don't need. Or another large on carryout special...that I also don't need.

I normally don't do delivery either for those reasons but when one is sick and the delivery fees are being waved one does it anyways.

From what I read expect to add another zero to live performance prices in the near future. I still find it astounding that people pay more than $50 for tickets to anything, but they do.  

IIRC correctly, I paid about $69 to go to the last* Warped Tour 2 years ago. Though I saw a lot of bands and really enjoyed myself (also ran into @stashua123 and other people I knew, including a (now former) coworker), the highlight of my day was running into Chris Burney (Bowling for Soup's guitarist) before the show; I was starstruck as seeing/meeting BFS was one of the main reasons I was there. And yes, I went to the meet and greet after their show and gave Chris a hug, which was awesome! And that was worth the price of admission**! :D 

*They kept saying it was the "last ever" (annual) Warped Tour", but they had a 30th anniverary tour with 3 dates literally a year later.

** Also, $69 for a day of fun seeing 30+ bands on different stages is actually not a bad deal. However, I realize paying that much with the intention of only seeing one band (though I did also catch Simple Plan (and met them), 3OH3, and a few other acts) is a little crazy. But hey, that's just me lol.

EDIT: Also, you met Taylor Swift and her mom? Cool!

I didn't see this posted anywhere, and I only looked a few pages back, so pardon me if it is a repeat.  Some current and alum members of the Live Entertainment department pulled together a pretty cool message for everyone that enjoys their shows.

I loved The Warped Tour...went to many, many of them! It’s semantics, and maybe slightly sleazy, but I think when they announced that it was the last tour they technically held to their word...Warped still goes on...but it doesn’t TOUR the country liked it used to. I consider it more like a Lollapalooza type event now. Some people may be upset that the last tour wasn’t truly the end of Warped...but how would anyone be upset that a good thing still lived on?

Makes me think of KISS, who've had more than one "Farewell Tour."

I was supposed to attend the Ozzy show at Riverbend. Maybe the shows will be rescheduled. I wouldn’t be mad if he decided to retire though, he deserves it 100%.

Awesome.  Simply a class act!

I' m suse this is just because of the stay at home order timing and it may be changed but Hotel Breakers will allow you to book in June.

I haven't heard of the hotel canceling on people in June yet. Mine isn't until July.

Last I read was minimum 2-3 weeks notice to open. Would they get non-public communication on when they can open since they're on the committee?

It has been revealed that this virus has been in Ohio since January according to antibody tests. I would be willing to bet that as they do more of those tests, that will go back further to even before we had even heard of this virus. This was long before everything got shut down.

I saw that report today about it being in Ohio far earlier. Makes me think about the large groups I was in at the presentation, lunch room and several exhibits at Winter Chill Out at CP in late February.

There's a decent chance I'll be selected for one of those random antibody tests, I hit a lot of fairly unique identifiers. Also for the cars, that's probably maintenance and other construction crew working on making the park more social-distancingable. Plus, they probably called a decent amount of their office staff back in, which is not a small number.

I don't think anyone has given a definite answer for those cars. It's still a mystery as far as I've seen. Employee parking is nowhere close to there, so I doubt it's employees. Do they leave at night?
