Nice to see that social distancing isn't happening all while people wear their masks wrong. Can't wait till we all get locked down again. /s

For those that attend opening day, just remember, the park is feeling its way through this, and will likely be operating at a very cautious speed.  Its just as new to them as it is to guests - so its

Just want to throw a big warning out there: I cannot stress this enough, please please please treat all associates with respect and DO NOT get mad at associates over enforcing the rules! I'm saying th

Not to mention, even if you don't die—there's a myriad of other reasons that make this a serious issue whether it's long term effects or simply not spreading it to those who can't afford to be out of

 I had assumed this would be the case.

There's no one in line and I've already been line jumped a dozen times

So nothing has changed at the park I see.  I take it there is no security to be found anywhere?

It's only the first day, the friends and family days were a lot better because the people actually respected policies for the most part. Give the park a little to figure out enforcement since this is only the first day

No joke, as this conversation is happening, Tom Petty's "The Waiting is the Hardest Part" is playing on the radio at work.

I promise you the virus isn't going to wait for them to "figure out" how to tell people to distance themselves :lol:

The reservation system is flawed.  1030 reservation, parking lot at 945.  In line outside orion @ 1115.......

I got in at 9:20 and am still in the middle of the line for Orion

Is Diamondback running at half capacity or full? The way they were doing seating for Orion yesterday was very similar to how Diamondback's train is naturally designed (inner two seats in odd rows, outer two seats in evens) so I'm curious if they are just letting DB use its full capacity since that's basically the same thing.

Also curious if Banshee is being filled in the same way as Orion.

But at least if someone asks you nicely to not stand on top of them we should all comply were all in this together guys

I guarantee you I will not be shy about telling people to give me space. I'll ask nicely once. ONCE. After that I'm calling security. There is no excuse for that level of stupidity. None.

 

I'll give the general operations of the park a lot of leeway as they stumble through this new normal. I fully expect slow and uneven food service, ride operations, etc. And that's fine. But pandemic safety enforcement should not and cannot be a stumbling block.

That's NOT true.  I'm about 100 people behind you and almost everyone is trying to keep at least 4ft spacing.

Don is walking around area 72 currently.

Hopefully Don is there to open a can of whoopass. Anybody refusing to social distance, jumping the line, not wearing a mask? Pull them out and put them at the end of the line. A second reminder? Boot 'em. Take a hard-line early.

The posted picture is still a lot better than pictures I've seen from Holiday World and Indiana Beach last week. At least "some" people are being somewhat conscious of distancing. And nearly everyone is wearing masks at least to some capacity.

They opened the parking toll booths at EXACTLY 10:30.  Line moved VERY nicely.  Temperature check tent had a back up.  Waited there maybe 10min. 

Got in front gate at 10:47.

Was in line for Orion (directly under lift hill) at 10:55.

Have only moved about 15-20ft in 26min....

 

Currently running at about 2min 15sec loading cycles?!!?

We all knew some would follow the rules and some wouldn't and still came.  Evaluate the risk-reward and decide if it is worth it.  Everyone should follow the rules but it is impossible to enforce 100% compliance.  I am not letting it ruin my day or mood.

With your 11am reservation.  So I guess they don't care at the gate.....
