Sources say that the park is not likely to open on the new date of April 4th. The park is now shooting for late April. This week, minimal amounts of employees are preparing to completly shut down the park and get it to a state where it can sit completly empty for a couple weeks. After this week the park will be completely shutdown. No one will be allowed in or out except for essential personal, such as security.

St.Louis County has also banned gatherings of 50 people or more until further notice. Effectively closing the park until that ban is lifted.

Truly sad times.

Yeah, but they just said on the news that the 50 person ban doesn't apply to businesses. They mentioned casinos and gyms can stay open. I agree they may not be ready by April 4, but I don't think it will be due to the ban.

I do know that they were supposed to have another weekend of training today and yesterday for ride ops that didn't happen.

I kind of wondered if they might reschedule that for the first weekend in April and try to open Easter weekend. But it might be after that.

Meanwhile, I would normally be ecstatic over the unexpected 3 weeks off I'm now having; but with so much closing,abd I suspect there will be more tomorrow, there's no where to go and nothing to do. Bummer.

What would donkeys be like on the moon?

One thing I've been wondering that hasn't really been answered by anyone yet is what the park's closure would mean for entertainment specifically this season if opening day was pushed back further than early April. Six Flags Over Texas already reportedly cancelled all entertainment through Fright Fest due to the closure, but their audition/rehearsal process isn't the same as SFSL's and our shows typically don't start until the end of May/early June these days anyways so maybe it'll work out? We'll have to just wait and see I suppose

Donkeys are my way of life!

If I had to guess I'd probably say if we have any entertainment only Miss Kitty's would come back. The cast seems to mostly return every season so there is familiarity with the show though that isn't guaranteed.

Then of course you have to wonder when the water park opens since this could eat in to the preparation times for that.

I'm afraid we're potentially looking at months, not week's.

Our trip through Ohio in June is looking very very very dicey. The next thing will be pass holders looking for refunds. In six flags current business state, this could really force some parks to close forever.

Basically...shit.

I have strangely received zero e-mails from SF, despite being a platinum member... Have they said anything about giving refunds or at least suspending payments for the months they're closed?

Why do I still have a donkey title???

We're platinum members too, and they haven't said anything to us either. St. Louis City and St. Louis County are going to start a mandatory stay at home order starting tomorrow, so it's getting real here. Eureka is on the Western edge of St. Louis County, so this is really out of Six Flags' hands now.

Am I allowed to eat donkey during lent?

If it means anything, my platinum membership was purchased from SFOT and I have received emails saying that for each day the park is closed, a day will be added onto the end of the membership at no charge (or something like that). I received something similar from SeaWorld San Antonio.

^ That's really great. I wonder how applicable that is since SFoT is a year-round park whereas SFStL is still a seasonal park. However, we do have the membership so they could totally do the same thing if they wanted to.

Our membership is through SF Great America, 'cause we didn't know the park you activate at is considered your "home park". No e-mails from SFGA.

They really should extend memberships, or at the very least, allow people to cancel their memberships without the cancellation fee that happens if you cancel before 12 months is up.
