^ I just figured, if they did it in the summer time, it'd be pretty hot,
and needing a lot more refrigeration of the various <drool> foods offered.

I imagine most parks will give perks of some sort for us not being able to use our already-purchased season passes for half the season, but it's a little easier for Knott's with their being year-round to just extend it. Good on them!


Every park that was open in so cal has committed to extending passes and tickets.

^ That's really great to hear. It's not like this is their fault at all, and they don't owe anyone, it's just A+ customer service and I'm glad to see it happen.

I forgot to mention this after visiting Knott's last month, but when did HangTime get new seatbelts? I remember the release on the old seatbelts were very counter-intuitive and really slowed down loading. If I remember correctly, you had to press the buckle together before it would release.

However, I noticed the seatbelts were more traditional this time around so people were actually able to unbuckle them without any instruction from the operators.

^Now that you mention it, I noticed the same thing. That's good. Sometimes it took way too long to unbuckle the old seatbelts.

Thanks for sharing! I love seeing old maps. It's weird to see Montezooma's Revenge without Jaguar threading it.

Knott's just sent an email to passholders that all 2020 regular, gold, and platinum season passes will also be valid through the entirety of the 2021 season. I was not expecting them to extend them for that much additional time!

i just deleted my post i was writing when i saw the email notification someone had commented. LOL

yeah, i was going to just accept 2020 as a lost value season. but to get 2021 in it's entirety is pretty awesome.

It'll be interesting how the other Cedar Fair parks handle this, but then again Knott's is the only one with full season operations.
