They've removed November and December from the hours page so I'm guessing it was just a mistake. Didn't expect Winterfest this year anyway as all the other Cedar Fair parks announced Winterfest a year in advance.

Also noticed on the calendar that Closing Day is on a Saturday this year instead of the usual Sunday, wonder why that is?

Just checking the City of Shakopee for new building permits and VF has 3 new ones for buildings in addition to the one I posted about last year for a remodel. So the good news is they are at least doing something in a year where the park will get no new rides. The bad news is they have no description in the permits as to what buildings are. Below are the 4 big permits with them accompanied by their dollar value plus more for electrical and plumbing associated with all of them which amounts to about a million dollars total. So does anyone know what these building are? A remodel of back offices? New food buildings? Newly remodeled haunts maybe?

Remodel/Alteration Commercial building - $415,000
Commercial Building addition -$125,000
Commercial Building New (1) - $75,000
Commercial Building New - (2) $75,000

^
And no, I do not know what is going on with the Dino's because I have not been by the park lately. Assume they are removing them since they said they were leaving after last year. Next time someone drives by see if you can still see the T-Rex looking over the fence by the ticket booth.

I drove by this week and I didn’t see T. rex from the highway it looks like it was removed. Did any more rest rooms get remodeled during the off season and was there any work on High Roller far as re painting or re tracking?

Also anyone going to season pass preview day you have to use your season pass to register this year I don’t remember having to register for season pass preview day and spaces are limited.

It will be interesting to see if the park opens on time because of corona.

Let's hope so! Having a mid May opening date is a plus!

Just another little construction update. Added this week was another COMMERCIAL BUILDING ADDITION work permit for another $80,000 (no details again). Also a work permit for PLUMING REPLACEMENT valued at $14,000 for the 'Corn Cart' over by the theater. Only at VF will you see a work permit description like that. Be green with envy you other CF parks. :lol:

Here is the updated list of new or additions to buildings that VF has work permits for 2020. Hope one or two are new food places. Could any of this be involved with the repurposing of the Dino entrance or buildings?

Remodel/Alteration Commercial building - $415,000
Commercial Building Addition -$125,000
Commercial Building New (1) - $75,000
Commercial Building New (2) - $75,000
Commercial Building Addition - $80,000

I Love Donkeys!

As of now It looks like they will be opening on the scheduled date as of now

Who know if they will be actually able to open by then though, maybe this is just a strategy to keep all of the Karens from complaining.
