Fantasy Island in NJ closed, reopening next week (exact date not given)

Steel Pier closed Friday - Sunday

And although the sites aren't updated, I'm sure Playland and Gillian's in Ocean City, NJ will be closed since they are all under mandatory evacuation and they showed the boardwalks on the news completely empty.

Keansburg will be closed also as they are under evac as well.

Pretty much anything in NJ is going to be closed I think..

Looks like Hersheypark and Knoebels are in store for some heavy rains. Hopefully no serious flooding at either place........hopefully!

Any word on damage at any of the affected parks? Hope all the CB East Coasters and their families came through OK.

Some people say the wind sounded like a jet engine. When I woke up at 2 am Sunday, it sounded like the B&M "roar" on Dominator/Medusa!

The amusement park rises bold and are huddled on the beach in a mist
