So this question might be somewhere between premature and unnecessary, but are there any guesses about the effect this supercharged and potentially extended mega-flu season might have on park attendence? Investors have knocked down Cedar Fair shares 20% in the past week - which says something, but I'm not sure if it's saying "serious concerns" or "unwarranted panic selling". Obviously the Charlotte area isn't affected by an epidemic at this point, but, as seen elsewhere, that can change in just a week or two. Is this risk going to thin the crowds as Carowinds' season begins?
Should we be excited about the prospect for sparse lines? Should we snap up shares of FUN on sale? Is it stupid to even be considering going to a crowded public place right now?
