Not sure about Sunday but on Sat, probably not. Steel Force was consistently one of the longest lines, 15min in the afternoon and maybe close to 30 around 10pm. Only a couple maze haunts approached 1hr waits (Cornstalkers & Asylum seemed the worst).

I don't like to hear stories of long lines @ Dorney! :devil: :lol:

Heading up with the crew this Saturday night but looks like its gonna be COLD! I know it can change but seeing that it should be 39* by midnight. Brrrrrr! I told everyone I'm going with "plan on layering!" Hoping that keeps some folks away. We're not big on trails but we did Haunt @ Dorney last year and the park itself was busy but most coasters had little-to-no wait. *crosses fingers*

You'll see low crowds next weekend. Coasters will have no waits more than likely. Columbus day weekend is always the busiest for the park during haunt. Stop by three point challenge and say hi to me when you're at the park!

^ I will definitely be over at Demon Drop! That thing is bonkers. My other half hasn't ridden one of those since Stuntmans' Freefall @ Great Adv waaaaaay back in the day, so I'm excited to get her on DD. If you guys see me say hi. As long as the weather doesn't change to rain, we'll be there!

That's really a shame to hear because its easily the most intense few seconds of ride in the entire park. We'll be by to check it out and see if its running, for sure. I'm also a big fan of Dominator too so as long as one of them are open. Hoping to get up there before Haunt starts, probably around 4/5pm. Music Express I won't ride (too much spinning) and Tilt A Whirl is really only if the other half wants to ride.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Hey so I saw the 39 degree forecast and Ima let you finish but any chance Thunder Creek Mountain will be open Saturday? This is a completely serious question.

We're still debating between SFNE and Dorney on Saturday. With low temps and short staffing potentially closing 2 of the best rides at Dorney we might have to bite the bullet and head up to SFNE but I'm looking for any excuse to go to another park instead. Lol
