Depends on the ride. ;)

Seriously though, I find rides more thrilling when its cold and windy outside.  Rain, on the otherhand, can be quite painful...

Why not?? Its no different then hopping on a snowmobile. You just bundle up to avoid the wind chill factor.

Here in Texas, it's a tradition to ride Mr. Freeze in that kind of weather, during Holiday in the Park. We call it chillin' out!

Would I? I did, along with everyone else that was at the ERT for last October 29 "Supermania" event at SFNE.  It was 29 degrees warm, and there were flurries (as was discussed in a prior thread here).  I had never ridden a coaster dressed for winter.  It was a hoot.  Strangely, me and my son were soon removing our hats a gloves and opening our jackets as we got quite warm from riding S:ROS about 6 times in 40 minutes.  It was those repeated adrenaline "rushes" heating us up!

Just gimmie a couple sweatshirts, a pair of gloves, maybe a face mask, and I'm there!!

If you can go skiing swooshing down a hill at 40mph, I'm pretty sure you can take going up & down a coaster at the same speed... or double that. :)

I rode SROS at SFDL as well as all the coasters at DL in some very cold weather.  it was in October and there was snow on the ground.  I didn't have much protection so I came off all red and shivering.

Been there. Done that.

PKI dry run day 2000 ("Beast in the snow!") for one; Geauga Lake closing day ca. 1997 for another (the year their season ended on 11/2). And I've ridden lots of coasters in miserable 40-degree and rainy weather; seems like that happens every time I go to BGW...

The Beast 20 times in a row during the last weekend PKI was open last season. Temperature was in the low 30's. I could not feel my face or hands for a few hours later, but I can't think of a better way to spend a late October morning!

Are you going March, Dave? That might have something to do with it. ;)

Done it.  Why do you think I have a ski jacket? ;)

(Well, other than I've skiied and snowboarded on occasion.  Not WELL, mind you...)

On October 29 last year I was at Great Adventure and it was really cold that night.  Being the smart person I am I brought gloves with me so that my hands wouldn't get cold.  While waiting to get on Medusa the wind really picked up making it really cold.  I believe the temp at the time was around 40degrees.  At the top of Medusa's lift it felt like it was 20.  That was one of the best trips to Great Adventure I had all year long.  It was really funny watching all the people that were under dressed for the weather at the park.

Did it last year for Halloweekends at CP. It was 32 degrees out and icing for one of my rides on MF. The benefit was that everything there was walk-on status except MF with only a five minute or less wait. It was great. Would I do it again? Yes! In a heartbeat, if it meant walk-on rides.

If I can get pelted by 95mph rain in Japan on SD2K, I can certainly ride on a cold day.  Just bundle up, and smile...
