An uneventful drive with my wife, kids and a neighbor from down the street.
Then we arrived around 9:30... "Sorry folks we're closed for two weeks to clean and repair America's favorite family fun park, Sorry!"
Not quite, the sign actually said "We are closed today for a private function as advertised."
I was on their website Thursday & Friday planning what rides I wanted to hit, and what entertainment, but not once did I think to check the calendar (Who would suspect a park that has attendance issues to close to the public the second Saturday of June?)
After a few expletives, and finally a couple of laughs at the turn of events, we grabbed a map at BP then headed to CP.
We arrived at CP 10:45, and had a great time. 2 rides on Maverick were the highlight, That ride is awesome!
Returning Home I got a newsletter from ACE Informing me it was going to be closed while the facilities were being overhauled. NOW YOU TELL ME!!!
Answer My Prayers, Overbook my next Flight!
I wouldn't have thought to check a calender this early in the season either, but from now on I will.
Thanks for posting this.

I think in this type of a situation a park website could better inform someone with a pop-up from the start, something along the lines of what the Kennywood website is doing for the construction alert. It's not able to be blocked by a pop-up blocker either.
This happened to someone a few years back with King's Island under the same circumstances and posted their story here.
