Break even in 2021? Yes, that is being pretty optimistic.

I can certainly agree.

I wonder if that includes capital investments and/or things like taxes, debt service, and depreciation. If it does, that's super optimistic.

Seems like they are intentionally vague. Could mean on an operating cash flow basis which wouldn't pick up capital investments and depreciation. Though I saw a statement from CEO something of when the world returns and everyone is sick of being in their houses, we expect the parks to do very well. That would indicate a much bigger return towards historical revenues/profits.
