We've had fun times on rainy days at Dorney Park, Hershypark and Knoebels in the past. But how do SFGA, Moreys Pier, and Astroland (Coney Island) operate in rainy weather? (Of course, KK will be closed, but what else?) We'll make our plans depeding on the daily forecast and feedback about each parks ability cope with wet weather.
If Saturday is really bad, we may head indoors. Can you recommended any good indoor attractions in addition to the Crayola factory and Hershey Chocolate World?
Not sure what you're into, or how far you're willing to travel, but here's a few indoor (non-park) attractions in the region.
Crystal Cave near Kutztown
Ashland Pioneer Tunnel (a real mine train ride) www.pioneertunnel.com
If you're the artsy/gallery type, there's Banana Factory in Bethlehem www.bananafactory.org
If you're the musical type there's the Martin Guitar factory tour in Nazareth. www.mguitar.com
Not sure of hours of any of these places, particularly on a holiday weekend, so you should check out the websites. The good news is that Saturday night and Sunday should be OK.
BTW, Coney Island was shut down because of rain and high winds last Saturday. At noon, one window of Nathan's Famous was open, and virtually everything else was shuttered from the storm. We got free parking at Keystone Park, and took the subway to Manhattan.
We had a great day at Dorney Park on Sunday (not a drop of rain), and actually got heat-stroke at Six Flags Great Adventure on Monday. And yes, the coaster gods cooperated and we got two great rides on KK. :) *** Edited 9/7/2006 3:10:51 PM UTC by greatwhitenorth***
