Crowds at CP Last Open Weekend

Monday, September 18, 2000 5:43 AM
My wife and I are thinking of going to CP on the last weekend it's open (Oct. 14-15). Can anyone give me an idea of what the crowds might be like? We really want to get in a few more rides on Raptor, MF, etc. before the end of the season.

Thanks.

If the weather is decent, it could be a zoo, but generally the crowds have started to thin as the evenings go. Rest assured, it won't be as bad as, say, a Saturday in August.

Well, there are a couple factors to the closing weekend crowds. 1) The biggie is weather. A few years ago the weather closing weekend was beautiful. The Saturday of that weekend was like a Saturday in mid-July. However the Fridays of Halloweekends are usually light. 2) Millennium Force. It's difficult to say how many are going to come out for "one last ride".

Basically, I would expect closing weekend to be the busiest of the Halloweekends.

I am going this Saturday. I went last year and the lines werent too bad. hour waits for raptor, magnum, mantis, power tower. Everything else was a walk-on. I am curious to see how the Force will affect this.
