^ That was a very wise choice. I heard from somebody on SFGAmWorld that BTR and The Dark Knight Coaster are the only coasters open today. Looking at the app it looks like most of thrill rides are closed as well.
Yeah, that’s pretty alarming. Great Adventure and New England have run every single coaster in their HITP lineup in colder weather (32 degrees, sunny and not windy). Unless they just chose to do that because the park was empty and they didn’t care (which is likely since it’s Six Flags) then it doesn’t bode well for Holiday in the Park. Was there ice overnight or something (that wouldn't have melted if it never got above 32)?
According to Marcus LeShock, there was a lot of ice.
I'm at the park today and a lot more things are open. Raging Bull, Batman, Joker, V2, Demon, Dare Devil Dive, Lobster, Chubasco, Mardi Gras Hangover, and a few others opened today after being closed yesterday.
They probably didn't run the rides because the attendance these couple weeks is very low. You save on labor and you potentially cut down on maintenance costs if cold weather makes you replace things more often. Plus I watched a maintenance worker stand at the American Thunder control panel at SFSL for an hour or more (the ride was estopping because the trains were coming in late and the computer's timer was flagging it) during- I'm guessing they don't want to spare workers for something like that in cold weather until the event starts.
