Perhaps they don't have enough people to adequately staff the place and are using this as an out? Because up here in NY we got similar snowfall totals, and like you said, it's melting pretty rapidly.

I'm glad they announced this well before I drove down to a closed park.

the park is gonna be dead. everyone is heading over to KD for the opening of a RMC, Twisted Timbers. Whats the point to go to SFgadv for nothing new.


:?r you know NYC and Philly are full of people who don't give two sh*ts about Twisted Timbers or Kings Dominion right?


It might not be that far fetched. I don't think that the Basic B---- GPer is going to be bothered to make it for opening weekend in cold temperate anyway. The most likely guests are the diehards. So they might be willing to make the drive.

I think it's pretty far fetched to assume that more than a very small percentage of people are getting in there cars and driving 4-7 hours depending on where you are around here just to go ride Twisted Timbers. I'm extremely excited to to down there but in my group of friends who just enjoy going to great adventure here and there haven't even heard or Kings Dominion let alone know about their new ride lol

Look! It's something so dark I can't make it out!

Pretty sure NJ Transit has a bus from Port Authority to the park, but I don't know specifics. That's really the only way to the park from NYC, unless you're willing to rent a car.

I plan on making a trip up there Easter Sunday.

In the past, does it usually get crowded on Easter? If it's not too terribly crowded, I'm not going to waste my $ on Flash Pass.

Here's a cool video shared by the park on their preparations for opening day, which included a lot of snow removal.
