A major storm is going to be blowing up the east coaster and I heard from a park manager while I was at Six Flags America today that they will NOT
be open tomorrow (Sunday April 15th, 2007).
Just thought I would let as many people know as possible. You may want to check with your local park before heading there tomorrow.

I see it's also posted on the Six Flags websites for Six Flags America, Great Adventure and New England that they will also be closed tomorrow.

I saw it on your site just prior to coming here....speaking of which I can no longer access the photo gallery,or post in the "ride board" forum there so what's up with that?

And why would you be going to the park anyway?

I feel for you guys that wanna get out to the park. Its pretty bad as of late recently with the weather, trust me im from cleveland, and our baseball has been missing most of the first homestand here, because of the weather.
I was thinking about this last week, we need to start scheduling things later to open even baseball in cold weather cities. The weather in the east and midwest is unpredictable, that is why all the parks in ohio open in late april early may. Obviously we do have good days weather wise, but we still get snow in april, so it is without saying they should push back dates to open. I know they will lose a bunch of money to the previous year, but thats just a fact that they will lose money trying to operate with days in inclimate weather.

I would question the "losing money" hypothesis. The weather is so unpredictable, I find it hard to believe a place like SFGAdv wouldnt actually save in the long run if they decided to open up later in the year. It seems a bit silly to have your park open, only to close it here and there due to weather, not to mention pathetic sporadic attendance.
Unless, of course, they use a radio station to announce free entry. Then they seem to show up.

I think you can't base a decision about when to open off of the wacky weather of one year. Three weeks ago, it was sunny and in the low to mid 70's.

Well i mean no disrespect to your comments coasterguts, but the weather is always something different if you live east or in the midwest. Things happen differently, we dont have temperate climates such as the west and florida, its kind of expected. In our areas of the country things change daily, for most of the year besides summer, as far as temperature/percipitation. Its wierd, ahh for those warm november and december days now here in cleveland.

^ In my 24 years of life, 19 of which I remember decently, I have never seen us (Northwest Ohio) have snow for 2 weeks in April. Especially snow that was bad enough to cause major traffic problems last weekend in Dayton OH. They closed I-75!

I agree with CoasterB. It's been cloudy and in the 40's and low 50's in the D.C. area for two weeks now. Rarely does that happen in April. I would hate to see the amusement industry move to opening in May on the east coaster because of a few cool days. This upcoming weekend it's going to be nice. I bet the local parks will be packed since people will want to get out.

This is the second day in a row that SFNE will be closed.

So much for "Spring Break" at SFNE... even if/when they do open this week, looks like it will be pretty miserable Tuesday through Thursday... hopefully the forecast for next weekend will hold up as next weekend looks to be VERY nice (at least at the moment it does)...
