Check out this amazing photo compliments of Dave Morgan!! 

I feel bad because this is all I post about lately but no... if a park has the ability to open and there's demand and they choose to stay closed then they're dumb. Period. Be creative and figure it ou

Did they happen to mention how heavy that train is?

We would be more focused on the big rides. As long as all the main attractions are open I am cool with other rides being closed. We would probably do a haunt or two if there were low crowds and there on Friday.

 

It depends on your definition of "major". Last year Rougarou, Corkscrew, Gemini and Mine Ride were closed. Rougarou and Gemini would be enough for me to pick Sunday instead. This was the full list of closed rides on Friday last year. Sky Ride was actually closed for the entire Halloween event due to staffing so that one wasn't limited to Fridays. I believe the other rides were all open on Saturday and Sunday.

 

Antique Cars

Camp Snoopy

Cedar Point & Lake Erie Railroad

I can live with that. Slightly bothered by Rougarou being closed as we haven't been on this version yet but I can live with missing it.

Knoebels has the best peroxides. If you're going to be hurt at an amusement park, Knoebels is the best one to be hurt at. Their peroxides will make sure you don't get an infection.

 

wow.. that autocorrect didn't even show up when I posted. . . weird.

 

went back and fixed.

Cedar Downs is awesome. We had a storm blow over one evening, so basically the only ride open was Cedar Downs, it was so much fun. I was shocked that there were no seatbelts!

I mean that picture's pretty cool and all but come on, it's just a tad bit deceiving. I was in like the 90% coverage zone it didn't get anywhere near that dark, and I'm pretty sure Sandusky was even further from the path of totality than we were.

 

The whole thing was sort of underwhelming, but cool picture anyways I guess.

The image had to be exposed for the sun's lighting, which is very bright (in case your eyes haven't told you yet). It's dark because the camera had to be stopped down quite a bit and the shutter set to very fast in order to get the correct exposure because of the sun. On a normal afternoon (with the sun elsewhere outside the frame) that photo would have been likely pitch black at those settings because they just wouldn't allow enough light into the camera for a properly exposed (lit) image.

 

Think of the eclipses glasses you (hopefully) wore. Everything but the sun was pitch black because a ton of light had to be stopped in order to bring the sun to a safe viewing level, meaning that light from the rest of the world, obviously nowhere near as bright as the sun, was long filtered out.

does anyone know what rides will be open for halloweekends?

 

What do you mean? Generally all rides except for the water rides run on Saturday and Sunday. Last year they closed Sky Ride for staffing but that's it.

 

The Friday night ride list is not out yet but I posted last year's on the last page. It'll probably be the same or at least very similar.

My favorite piece of advice being circulated by the media was to not drive while wearing eclipse glasses.

Earlier this month, I bought 2 of those really cheap Groupon tickets. The friend who I was going to go with can't go anymore so I'm not sure what I'm going to do. I might make a trip out there next week by myself if anyone wants to meet up.
