  1. Today
  2. SANDUSKY, Ohio — Three Cedar Point employees have tested positive for the coronavirus, the amusement park confirmed to 3News Wednesday evening. Contact tracing is under way to determine who the associates may have interacted with. No details are being provided on their health status due to privacy concerns, but officials say the individuals were screened prior to the park reopening last week. (I believe Kings Island screens their employees before every shift, not just once a week.) Keep in my mind that just because the employees have caught it, that does not mean that caught it at the park/ work. Read the rest of the story here!
  3. The Orion one is kinda cool. Also like the Phantom Theater.

  6. I know they're taking precautions as much as they can, Mr. Roberts. But Florida is the epicenter not just in this country but in the world, and they should not be open. People can live without Disney or they can die with it. I have family there and am terrified for them, and for myself. We're all old and extremely high risk.
  7. Last week
  8. So a blogger posted this picture complaining about the Disney in Florida not enforcing social distancing. Here is the exact same photo taken from another perspective. These two pictures from Theme Park review shows how you can't trust everything you see on the internet. There just seems to be a whole lot of people out there who want to see the world burn and get some clicks on the internet while doing it. Clicks = add revenue.

  14. There will be many more, unfortunately.
  15. From Kings Island on July 8th. “We have had an associate who tested positive for COVID-19. Out of respect and for the privacy of our associates, we do not provide details of any individual’s health status. Kings Island continues to adhere to CDC guidelines regarding contact tracing. The affected associate was screened, as per usual, prior to park opening. In accord with CDC guidelines, our associate and guest screening procedures and contact tracing protocols along with social distancing and proper face coverings are designed to facilitate a safe in-park experience for our guests and associates. “Our policy as it pertains to any associate confirmed to have tested positive for COVID-19 is to send that individual home for 14 days or until they test negative. Simultaneously, any associate(s) identified as having close contact with an associate who has tested positive will also be sent home for 14 days or until they test negative. The workstation and general workplace where the affected associate(s) work will be sanitized and will not reopen to other associates or guests until proper cleaning of the facility has been completed. The health and safety of our associates and guests is always our top priority.” You can read the story on Fox and on WCPO, which is Channel 9 in Cincinnati

    The scarier part is that the guy in front of you isn't wearing his at all, Mr. Roberts. CDC says it transmits through the air, especially with wind. Whoever that was put you and everyone else on that ride at risk. Please be careful and monitor.

    My first ride on Orion! My mask slipped down under my nose during the ride. More to come eventually.
  20. cirrhosis of the liver, a giant hydrocele hernia making it difficult to walk or even to get out of bed, stroke like symptoms resulting from ammonia levels getting to high, and causing confusion sometimes, years of a dry coughing, constant fatigue and super sore muscles. Even though I have never drank. all of these are from the liver disease. Then I actually did have a mini stroke or two about two years ago. I am lonely, my house is a junk pile, my brother has been sneaking into my dead bolted room and stealing my stuff, corona, riots, destruction of both private and public property, Amazon Forest is still burning, started by people clearing the land for farming, and over 20% of it is gone. This forest is one of the primary things that produce oxygen and create climates. There are other large forest getting cleared in other countries as well as Austrailia also being on fire. Politicians have reached a whole new low on using their power to align there pocket books and those of their friends. Republicans and Democrats have reached a new low in slinging mud and fake news at each other in attempts to to seize power and liberals want to control what we think, see and hear. !00's of women disappear every day but because it doesn't fit the news' narrative you hardly hear anything about it. Is it no wonder that I no longer care if I catch Corona and die or not?

  21. Well, that's something, Mr. Roberts. I'd thought that was in place from the get-go. This heat is dangerous.
  22. They started a ticket reservation to ride Orion today that should cut back on how long you will be standing in the hot sun to ride.
  23. Glad you got to ride, Mr. Roberts. Next time you might want to take a light-colored umbrella to protect you from the sun, or a very large straw or cotton hat. Yes, men can use umbrellas too. Lot of people with skin cancer use them all the time.
  24. 2 and a half hours in the hot sun while waiting for Orion was brutal! Wearing a mask the whole Time made it thrice as brutal. Probably about 10% of the line had shading. My fiends had had bailed by the time we reached the hour and 15 minute mark. I didn't go to the park to stand in line for an hour so I stayed and rode it by myself. It was a awesome ride! They had three little shed coverings for shade but the roofs of them are so high the sun shines in through sides so your still baking in the sun. Horrible wait because the sun and heat, but again, a super awesome coaster.
  25. Kings Island is now OPEN for the 2020 season, with daily operations beginning today for season passholders. The park will open for daily ticket sales on July 12, and the reservation portal is now open for everyone! See everything here: Check out the official Orion debut preview video below!
