I remember reading about their rain policy here; that was actually one of the deciding factors for making a stop there. I'm fitting it into the middle of a road trip, so there's not really any wiggle room to do it any other day; it's that tuesday or nothing. Knowing it'll almost certainly be open no matter what the weather ends up being is a big plus.

Sara's does tend to have lines if it's a nice day but it's kind of an Erie staple.

I'll be there on a weekday and I can always try to get there at off-hours, so, shouldn't be too terrible. Thanks though!

No problem, their shakes are very good. I hope you have a great visit. I'd also recommend at least a drive around Presque Isle (it's not very big) if you have time and you're already down there.

Not only were they open, but they stayed open until 8 pm. Even major parks with favorable rain policies like SFNE probably would have closed earlier.

Noted! I should be able to do that. If all goes according to plan I'll be getting there around 6 monday evening, and have all day tuesday there.

For those interested, I am going to add my recent food reports from Sara's and Schickalay's On The Bay near Waldameer in the 'Good Eating Outside of Theme Parks' thread.

When I went to Waldameer, I had a great meal at Sheetz! :lol:

I'm considering taking my kids to Waldameer later this year. Such a great little park! :b

The Brewery at Union Station is pretty good, if you're into craft beer. It's also alleged to be haunted. One of their brews is called "Apparition Ale."

My wife was at the park today and sent me a picture of the Spider. Currently looks as if its sitting in pieces. Curious if it's just down for maintenance or something larger?

Noooo! One of my absolute favorite flat rides. Still two weeks before I'm there, so it could be running again by then, but that doesn't look good...
