With all that closed the least they could do is open Tornado and hand everyone a tube. And a waiver.

In all seriousness they usually do a good job getting things open here too but last weeks storm was a couple inches of snow, then a few hours of freezing rain and then more snow. And then Arctic air for a few days made the snow hard as a rock. If it was stuck to any tracks, it wasnt coming off without a lot of work.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Everything seems to be back up except for Thunderbolt. I would think today should take care of whatever ice is left on that. It's (somehow) 53 degrees. :lol:

Most likely getting my last park visit this season on Friday. Can’t thank SF’s enough for adding HITP!

Looking at QueueTimes, it looks like Thunderbolt is still down. Seems unlikely it will be back up before the end of HITP.

There's a 50% chance I try to make it there tomorrow as well since I haven't made it to SFNE's HITP yet.

Thunderbolt wasn’t running today from what I noticed. Loved that Pandy was though. Really enjoyed my visit today to end my season. Apologize for my double comment above to. Really hope that us Northeast theme park fans find fun in our dead time.

I'll happily eat crow. They got Thunderbolt open and it currently yas the longest line in the park.

Well yeah because Thunderbolt has a 25-30ish minute wait regardless of season or crowd size. It’s one of the few constant things in the universe. It could be a slammed Fright Fest Saturday or a Holiday in the Park day where everything else is a walk-on. Doesn’t matter... 25 minutes.

Did anyone make it for the last couple days? We got another blast of sleet and freezing rain goodness on Monday and Tuesday. Noticed Batman, Thunderbolt, and Pandy were closed on the app as were other rides. Sucks for the park that they got 3 or 4 storms of this crap. Even after a sunny day in the 40s today there's still 3 inches of rock solidness because it doesn't melt.
