Probably has something to do with their vastly HS/college age workforce having classes on Monday thus being more hesitant to work Sunday nights.

I also wonder how many people would show up on a Sunday night. I don’t think it would be busy enough to make it worth being open most Sunday nights especially for the smaller Cedar Fair parks.

Apparently the locals think that they're entitled to CP opening up on a weekday just for them. That was after last weekend's insanity. When staffing is addressed, they seem to think it's silly to suggest there wouldn't be enough local workers who would be up to the task. (idiotic source: Facebook.com)

I just swallowed a whole donkey!

KD has dropped all non-Haunt Sundays during the Haunt run probably because they end up dead days. I think it would be a better argument that more popular parks such as CP and KI doesn't need them, but it makes it harder to find a good time to go. I do see CP has a partial Haunt, though with 8 PM close, on Sundays, but didn't find any others that do that. 3 other CF parks -- Dorney, Valleyfair and WoF -- have no Sunday Haunt or only the Columbus Day exception, and MiA has no Haunt at all. The remaining 5 parks have Sundays. 4 of the parks without are in the midwest. May have to do with driving distances for employees and guests. Most employees at KD have a 30-45 min. drive. Sundays were more crowded than Fridays until they started College Nights.

Can you see the donkey in my toast?

Open the park and only the park for them. With a big old sign outside every single ride and restaurant that it's closed due to lack of staff. ;)

People who had no plan to go to the park had days ruined due to the park being closed.

If Six Flags parks are any indication, the answer is "a ton".

They will just have to do what Knott's and CW do and break the day into two parts. A no haunt day with alone rides. Then if you want to stay for the haunts you need to by a 2nd ticket for the haunts. Not sure if they will do to hotels and during Halloween you have to stay for a min of 2 days

^Dude I know it's just mistaken typos but all I can think about while reading your post is a theme park full of dudes in camo creeping around with shotguns hunting for zombies or something.
