Agreed. Unless you can temper you expectations to realize that everything is going to suck.

Granted, I'm going to KI for 2 days and CP for 3 in a few weeks, but I fully expect everything not to be running, lines to be long, and food service to be a shitshow. I just need a dose of normalcy in my life, and if I can't go get drunk and play video games at my local Dave and Busters, coasters it is.

SDLooper is not running for now either. It should be back up at some point.

^ that's a shame, as I love that coaster.

what about Sidewinder and Trailblazer? (I mean, neither of those are must rides, but they are coasters there)

. . . wondering if those two are closed, if they just closed that Section over by StormRunner? Since the 3 coasters are all right next to each other.

More than likely it's just maintenance issues that normally would be addressed in the off-season but due to COVID they most likely weren't able to finish the work and/or parts couldn't make it to America from wherever they are coming from. It's a shame and SooperDooper is my daughter's favorite but we will still enjoy our visit this year just the same. And Kissing Tower is also closed which is no surprise due to the broken window and the fact it's probably a bad idea to run it with Social Distancing and all.
COASTER COUNT:

Bummer to hear that Storm Runner will be closed all season, but at least ya'll have a shiny new B&M Hyper to help make up for it. Can't wait to see the POV and hear people's thoughts.

First rides on Candymonium happening today. Love seeing all the comments asking if it crushes your thighs.

I'm expecting to see "it's a B&M hyper coaster that's better than Raging Bull and just as good as Nitro/Mako/Diamondback/Behemoth/etc" haha.
