If weather gets bad at PKI, eg. rain, wind, lightning, what rides do they close? I am just curious because I am going tomorrow.
Thanks a lot

Heavy Rain: Vortex (due to speed of the coaster, I guess they think it is fast ;)), Drop Zone (Due to the breaking mechanism), Son of Beast, King Cobra (had to add it, it lives on), Previously the Beast, but with the new fin breaks I doubt it.
Lightning (within like one mile of the park): Vortex, Beast, SOB, Face-Off, Top Gun, Racer and E-racer, Drop Zone, Extreme Sky-Flier, King Cobra (RIP), Rugrats Runaway Reptar, Scoobys Ghostercoaster and usually The other non covered rides in the park and the Eifle Tower. Only when lightning is close and appears to be threatening.
On the 28 look for the park to have normal oporations with maybe some interuptions in rides for short downpoors. The rain will probably move out around noon or 1 so not many people will show up at the park. Hold out if they do close the majority of the rides because I know PKI. When it does stop raining. You will have the park to yourself. Not many people stay during storms. Have fun!

I have ridden Drop Zone in a downpour before. Soon after, they closed it but it wasn't due to the brakes. Since the ride uses magnetic braking, it really shouldn't matter. I am not sure why they do close it though. If lightning is in the area, I know they close that ride very quickly. It's been struck before.

You are the weakest link. Goodbye!
Sean, thinking that perhaps with the speed of the drop on DZ, they'd be worried you'd hit the "critical 88 mph" when the lightning struck, and you'd have a bunch of riders travelling thru time....:)...(actually this is the spot for one of your famous "hair-raising" emoticons)!....
