^It will likely reopen once the pandemic is under control (to where sanitizing rides and social distancing isn't a big deal), they can up the allowed capacity in the parks to make it worthwhile, more people actually come to the park (that aren't pass members who they generally don't really profit from, and can afford to pay the extra staff required to run it. Unless I'm mistaken, it requires more employees to operate than any other attraction in the park. I know other parks have opened theirs, but not all parks choose to operate the same. It's common for BGT, in particular, to cut attractions like this during slow periods anyway (from my experience). Not directly related, but this is usually the time of year it goes down for its annual maintenance, as it doesn't operate during HOS, at least not in recent years. I don't see Stanley Falls opening any time soon for the same reasons, plus their queue is so tight, they'd have to pull a Disney and put up plexiglass in the queue to help separation. Also, i wouldn't be surprised if more attractions temporarily closed after Labor Day, at least on the weekdays.

If they need any help in selling out Howl-O-Scream, just add Iron Gwazi as only available during the event nights. I know tons of people who would gladly pay $24 for a chance to ride it!
