Pumped to ride it someday it looks awesome! Love all the coverage of the construction. I feel extra invested in this coaster.

When I grow up, I want to breed donkeys!

Halloween Horror Nights is cancelled. I had a blast at least years and was really disappointed that I was going to miss this year's but I guess it really just wasn't worth the time and effort and money for them to have to alter the whole event enough to make it safe for everyone involved. I'm sure they will go all out next year and hopefully all this stuff is over by then so we can all attend.

I know many of us are bummed about this, but this was the right decision. Not an easy decision, not a fun decision, but the right one. It would have been a REALLY scaled back, socially distanced horror nights and that's just not the spirit of the event. I'm sure it will be back bigger and better next year.

I Love Donkeys!

Definitely bummed, but also definitely the right decision. We do the frequent fear pass for this event every year but I really couldn't see it working this year even if they scaled back attendance. You still have the scare actors in close proximity to the guests. My son and his friend have a haunt they started two years ago in central Pennsylvania. I'm not sure if they will be able to open this year or not. Hoping they are able to ride it out if they can't.

As much as you are comfortable doing, please support your local businesses and parks etc. and be considerate of others health and wear a mask!! If you are not comfortable with a mask, stay home.

I Love Donkeys!

I wondered if they'd do a smaller, more exclusive event but it's almost an impossible ask for them to put together events at the moment with so much uncertainty. Plus we've had enough horrors for the year, right?

What's with the donkeys anyway?
