I am driving from Columbus to Rhode Island this weekend. I don't have a ton of time, but I want to hit a park on the way. Passing through PA, NJ, Conn., and MA.
Preferrebly I would like a smaller park that can be done in half a day..that obviously is open this time of year. Help would be appreciated!

seem like nice smaller parks in CT, although they arent open this weekend.
Here are some other links that might help tho:

P18, Lake Compounce's site says they don't open 'till Mid May. Am I missing something?

"seem like nice smaller parks in CT, although they arent open this weekend."
Im sorry, I mentioned they weren't open next weekend, just listed them as reference, which I guess was pointless. Im not sure of any parks at all that would be open next week which is why I posted the other links hoping they could help.

In Cleveland, The IX Center Amusement park is running.
Someone get me a bucket.

The weather does not look promising for this weekend. However I think there are only three parks open already in the Northeast.
1. SF Great Adventure in Jackson, NJ
2. Astroland & Deno's @ Coney Island Brooklyn, NY
3. SF New England in Agawam, MA

I've yet to find a park in Pennsylvania that will be open this coming weekend. You missed Hersheypark's Springtime in the Park by one weekend; unfortunately, the park isn't going to reopen until May 5.

Right, and Knoebels opens April 29 and Dorney doesn't open until I think May 6? I would go to SFGADV if I were you, although it may be busier than anticipated for early in the season.
