SFNE has almost no social media presence, I don't think they have ever posted about a closing anywhere besides their website this year. Their calendar does say until 6 today but obviously they should have a banner or something on their site. They pulled the closing early shenanigans two or three weeks ago on me, but we still managed to have a good visit. The weather was fine but attendance was super low. It seems like they will close early if there is low attendance and slightly bad weather.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I've seen a banner on the website if the park doesn't even open for the day, but whenever they close early they tend to hide it on the calendar like they did today.

I agree. Not saying it’s drastically better but Wicked Cyclone definitely ups it for SFNE. Also getting the world’s tallest Sky Screamer, “at that time, and Great Adventure’s originally being announced shorter than what it even ended up being. Harley Quinn became the best flat at SFNE. Cyborg not so much. I’m looking forward to seeing how different Wonder Woman will feel being taller. I’d even add in the new trains on Riddler which have greatly improved that coaster. Joker’s are a wash. Safari is great and I do enjoy Zumanjaro just wish the could getting it running together with Ka. All they have to do is flip a switch if they can get the inspector’s approval. Justice League was a pretty awesome addition as well. Anyways just my opinions.

went to holiday in the park over the weekend and Thunderbolt and Batman were absolutely hauling. Never seen batman go so fast and thunderbolt is vastly underrated, might even have been the best coaster open.

Our visit to the park over the summer was very disappointing. Service, major safety concerns, closing early for a 20 min passing storm, and guest services were all a major fail for this park.

I went through and gave them my clicks for the entertainment value. Just wanted to post here and mention how hilarious it was when they mentioned Nickelodeon Universe as a disappointment. They're talking about Disney, Universal, SeaWorld, and other major parks, and they're disappointed that a little kiddie park in a mall isn't the great park on Earth. Hilarious.
