I know every year SF ususally gives us the 1st weekend in Nov for some parks. SFA and SFGADV. I haven't seen anything on here or via email. Anyone know of any including Dorney and or Hershey too?

Unfortunately, Hershey and Dorney don't offer that (it would be awesome if they were open later into the season though). After this weekend, Hershey will be open again in around 3 weeks but that is for Christmas Candylane with no coasters and a very limited selection of flats. *** Edited 10/24/2006 4:24:45 PM UTC by YoshiFan***

I wouldn't show up at SFA or SFGadv the first weekend in November. As of right now, they are closed. Haven't heard a thing about a bonus weekend. Oh! FYI... The following is posted on the SFA (sorry, I know it's off topic but I wanted to point it out). As far as I can tell, this is only at SFA.
Important Final Fright Fest Weekend Information
Due to the popularity of Fright Fest, we recommend you pre-purchase your tickets online or at area Safeway stores. For the best family entertainment experience, there will be no re-entry after 6:00 pm, and on Saturday October 28th and Sunday October 29th, there will be no ticket sales after 7:00 pm. (Pre-purchased one-day tickets and season passes will be accepted.)

Don't give up so easily. Shapiro might decide to open the parking lots, charge $15 a car just to drive in and look at a closed park. :)

LOL! RGB. Good thing I bought my 2007 season pass, complete with parking at all SF parks next season. :)

No reentry after 6 a family feature, HA!
More like a keeping a captive hungry audience trapped inside a park with only overpriced, cold, crappy food.

I think keeping people inside the park is an excellent safety feature at SFA. Some of the worst violence has happened at SFA during Fright Fest. If it keeps from going home and bringing back friends to start trouble, I'm all for it.

^I've noticed that as well I-Fan.
It has become a regular occurance at SFA during FF for the past three seasons now.

It also keeps kids, teens and adults from going to their cars, drinking and other stuff and then coming back into the park and causing problems. I support it as well. I was at the park on Saturday night. It was a far different atmosphere than what was reported a couple of weeks ago. Everyone was having a good time and enjoying many of the shows. I never felt threatened at all. In fact, I stayed in the park longer (I was planning on leave around 7 or 8 to avoid the large crowd) because everyone was having a good time.

Yeah but I-Fan: Hasn't all the bad stuff @ SFA happened in the parking lot
? Keeping people out of the park, but with no limits to the parking lot, to mee, seems like a worse situation. It's kinda like when I was in college, fights rarely happened *in* the parties, it was always during the "parking lot pimpin'" that ish jumped off!

^ For that matter, wasn't *most* of the bad trouble at SFMM in the parking lot...even Lake Winnie's situation was in the parking lot, IIRC. Hmmmm, you mean alcohol *and* access to any weapons that might be in the car are a bad combination?
I'm forming the committee to ban parking....bring back trolley lines! :)

Unfortunately, there's been plenty of fights within the park as well. The people get thrown out, and then the "fun" continues in the parking lot.
