What KI does do is prohibit re-entry after 6 or 7PM during Haunt.

I remember paying $240 or $250 for a Platinum Pass in 2019. This year I paid $204. I will not accuse them of "giving away the gate" with this years Plat pricing, more like "enticing people back who took a year off."

Is this a problem that Cedar Fair is even looking to solve? Based on their pricing of passes last year into this year it would seem the answer is no.

I'm reminded of the Yogiism: "Nobody goes there anymore, it's too crowded."

Haunt is a great time to spend a *day* at Knott's, if you can get there early enough to make it worthwhile with the insanely early closing time. And of course I can easily understand the insanely early closing time at Knott's on Haunt days because...well, Haunt.

Trouble is, as dead as the park was during the day, it was STILL an hour-long wait for GhostRider.
