Anyone at the park today?

If I was in charge of the park (and corporate), I’d fix the ride correctly and quietly without alerting the entire world to the fact that we were having a problem that potentially was dangerous. Nothing to see here, folks...

Any idea why the causeway is backed up like Columbus Day Saturday on a June Monday?

I bet they're all gold passholders!

I am at the park today. Rolled in around 2. Lot 2 rows past guard tower, totally moderate crowd. What a normal weekday was like in the “before” times. Not hot and a cool breeze. 👍🏻

**Edit** By before times I mean Gold Pass not COVID. 🤣

Is that the new chain being installed hopefully, or the old busted one?

Took this last evening around 7 or so. It doesn’t look to me like there is a chain installed but I only had sunglasses and couldn’t see detail well.

I noticed that too it does not look like there is a chain in it this week.

I hope someday we get the full story of what happened. I'm stunned that a chain-related issue has taken Gatekeeper out of commission for almost a month now.

What is considered the overflow lot? The lot on the Marina side only looks half full to me, but it does look busy. I would expect it to remain so at least this week.

Hi, I hope you're right and the parking lot stays half empty. There are days when there are so many people there that it's not even pleasant to be there.))

The marina lot is considered the overflow lot. There's been times that even that became full and they began parking cars on the grassy areas prior to entering the toolbooths. A few of the October Columbus Day weekend saturdays come to mind for that (and others).

As for the grassy areas prior to the booths, much of the area that was previously grassy is now paved nicely, particularly in the vicinity of that large fake evergreen wi-fi tower near the new Chausee booths. That tower was previously smack in the middle of a grassy field. Since they relocated the route of that section of roadway I wonder how many additional lot spaces were added.

Most employees now park in the Marina Lot. So a half full Marina Lot does not mean more visitors.

What about a half empty one?

That would mean fewer visitors, and that’s a good thing.


ROUNDABOUND.

Unless something weird is going on, I don't think employees park in the Marina lot. The lot employees park in is called the bay side lot (it is on the marina side, but it's not gated in any way) and I believe anyone can park there. You will see cars every day now because of the employees and it being half full isn't alarming by itself unless the main lot is also full.
