Just to clarify before I plan on it, are all the coasters open for this last weekend ? Obviously if theres nobody there they might shut some down or if bad weather but is the expectation everyday that all are open?

Based on what we saw this past weekend, I imagine most of them will gradually open as the day goes on. Whizzer and X-Flight may be closed for the weather. Wouldn't be surprised to see 1 train operations too given the low attendance

It doesn't seem like this late season schedule and the event are drawing in many people. That can't be a good sign.

Yeah, I'd be shocked if they do this again next year.

Doesn't seem like a HITP at SFGAm is very probable

I wouldn't assume that. People aren't coming out for this event, but it could be that they just didn't find the event compelling. I'm fairly certain Chicago could still have a successful HITP event. But I doubt they try this beerfest thing again. It just isn't drawing people like they thought.

Exactly. Great Adventure is generally dead for the 2 weeks between Fright Fest and Holiday in the Park despite doing a wine and beer tasting event for one of those weekends. The popularity of that event is SLOWLY growing but they're still slow weekends. When Holiday in the Park starts, crowds pick way up.
