TBH, I wouldn't count on any opening date any park sets at this point. They're being optimistic, with reason. They don't want consumers to completely cancel their plans instead of settling with delaying them. I could be dead wrong, but these shelter-in-place orders are doing the same thing. If you say you're going to lock everything down for two months people are more likely to panic. At these this is my theory.

BUT, I was also dead wrong when I said this entire thing was an over exaggeration by the media, so who knows. (You can only cry wolf so many times before you get complacent and the wolf actually shows up.)

FWIW, I have tickets to Coasterstock with my kids, so I messaged them specifically about this, and they said "At this time we do not have additional information about the Coasterstock dates. If specific events change or move dates the information will be posted on our website." So, my takeaway from this is that it is still on at the moment, and while there's a decent possibility that changes (my personal guess), it'll simply move dates, rather than be cancelled. That is my read of that response at least. Again, FWIW...

Ok thanks for the info which is neither surprising or unreasonable. Just frustrating not knowing what's going to happen. I would imagine if there is a change of date they will probably offer a refund if you cannot attend on the new date. But I hope to see you there!

Ohio's Governor noted the other day that the expect the virus to peak around May 1st... If that is true, then I can see park openings in Ohio being pushed until June.

I find it very unlikely May will be the month KI or CP opens here.

Still waiting for a decision to be made about Coasterstock. As much as I was looking forward to this, we have no idea what kind of season any park will have especially if we're still social distancing.

I am gonna say about 99% of them cancelling or rescheduling.

Anyone else?

I venture to say you’re right. I have a feeling it will be canceled or rescheduled.

Canceled? Nah. I'm sure they'll still have coaster stock as soon as the park reopens in 2021.
