I was planning on a trip to PKI Saturday and the weather forecast calls for windy conditions. Does anyone out there know if certain rides will likely be closed b/c of this? I'm really looking forward to getting a first night ride on Beast.

No one can predict the future. If you're going anyway, you'll have to deal with whatever happens that day.

Generally during winds and rain, just about all rides remain open except for the Days of Thunder (the go carts).
If it gets too windy, the park will shut down tall rides like Drop Zone and the Eiffel Tower. Also, if there are thunderstorms, just about everything shuts down. And if the temperature is cold (50 F or less?) some steel coasters might not operate.
In short, I think your night ride on Beast is safe. Enjoy your visit and don't forget to do the Flying Eagles, it's the last weekend!

Yeah, as mentioned above, certain rides will be closed.
Just remember, even if Hurricanes or Blizzards pop up out of no where...PKI has an extremely loyal crowd. They come out no matter what...especially on a Sat!

Get there early and cross your fingers.
