The park has apparently quietly changed their hours for the rest of the event from 3-9 to 2-8. Okay...

I'm sort of surprised they'd shift the hours to have one less with the lights.

The new 2-8 hours have been in place before the start of the event. Last year was 2-9, then they changed it to 3-9, but then shifted it up about a week before they opened. So basically they shaved an hour off from last year. It does seem like they should stay open until 9 on the busier days.

I know more about donkeys than women!

That last hour got pretty empty when I was there previous years.

^ I saw someone post on Facebook it was due to ice on the tracks. That would make sense since Massachusetts got hit with 3-6 inches of snow earlier this week and I don't think the temperature went above freezing for it to melt.

But even if everything was open, I have no regrets driving the extra distance to Great Adventure and eventually getting home at 2 am. :lol:

Yeah I'm sure it was ice related but it's funny that Riddler was the one ride that was somehow unaffected. That thing is a tank.

I'm trying to think if I can ever recall a time I've seen Riddler/Mind Eraser go down for even a minor technical issue over the years and I can't.

The thing was able to run in single digit temperatures two years ago.

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

I made the mistake of going there Saturday. The only adult rides open were the teacups, Houdini, the Scrambler (which they were literally shoveling out of the snow when the park opened), and Riddler.

It wasn't the end of the world since I have a membership; I mostly just wandered and helped myself to "free" food and treats...but I would have been furious if I'd paid to take a family to the park and found virtually everything closed. There were a lot of very unhappy people in the park. Not great.

Sounds like you all need to head south and ride Six Flags' most explosive coaster. Saturday was a party. :lol:

In all seriousness, New England does seem slightly more conservative than Great Adventure and Great America but I definitely get the ice thing.You would not want this to happen.
