P. 456: Information about Christmas Town 2021!

Recommended Posts

I was at the park yesterday, (first time I've had to park in the overflow lot in years, as I rarely go on Saturdays), and noticed that they close September 1 until Howl-O-Scream. That struck me as odd. Have they always done this? I noticed Water Country closes on Labor Day too, and I figured they'd keep that open on weekends through September as well, as it averages above 80 around here until then. Is it done to save on costs since they went public?

It makes me sad to see how it seems like the all of the SeaWorld Parks are just going downhill. Budget cuts after budget cuts. When I visited the park back in 2010, I loved every second of being in it. I love all the SeaWorld Parks and still do! It is just a shame of what has been happening to them

I agree! I love Sea Wprld parks but it is a shame that they have to do this. It really makes me upset because i hate seeing a good park like this go downhill.

Mostly all parks that are not located in Florida and California only run daily from Memorial Day to Labor Day and then weekends only from Labor Day to the end of October (Also weekends only from opening day until Memorial Day). And water parks are generally Memorial Day to Labor Day only.

Oh okay. It was just the way that the tram person announced it then. The way he said it was that they were open through Labor Day, but would reopen for Howl-O-Scream. He should have said daily operations. I thought that was a bit weird and should have looked it up on their site, but the Busch Gardens site doesn't work well on my phone.

 

On another topic, I wonder how long until the park loses the Most Beautiful Park award for the first time.

Being as Howl-o-Scream starts on September 12 this year, the "reopen" claim isn't far off the mark.

They've been starting HOS a little earlier each year. It's a big draw for the park, and pass-holding locals will go multiple times (and spend money on food and drinks). They've even added more spaces to overflow parking for HOS Saturday nights.

And I thought our obsession with roller coasters was odd... This is spectacular... We should all go to the next roller coaster deconstruction and do this... Unless it's a SLC...

 

Now I know why our power company trims trees, rather than cut them down.
