Not quite on the topic, but does anybody know if Kennywood is still closed on Mondays throughout the season?  I wonder if this is strictly a financial decision and if it boosts attendance during the remainder of the week.

Skipper - The Kennywood site lists Monday - Friday ticket prices, so I'd assume they're open on Mondays.

Back in the 80's they did close on Mondays.  I remember going up there from Ohio once and it was like a scene from Vacation.  "You are CLOSED on a Monday??!!!##**~!

Yep.  I can sure attest for HUGE crowds down in Florida.  The parks were maxed out when I went there.  Disney, IOA, and Sea World were insane!
