I was there Saturday and can confirm that it wasn't busy at all. Every ride was walk on except for Time Traveler and after the rain storm it shut down for the rest of the day.

Mental note:  Rainy Saturdays before an Easter Sunday are good days to go.  lol.

In hindsight....it kind of makes since that it would be light on a weekend holiday that most families like to stay close to home.

Last year when I was at Disney over Easter it was actually less busy than I expected it to be.

Considering SDC isn’t actually open on Easter, it doesn’t surprise me that there wouldn’t be that many people there Saturday. I feel like people who go on trips over Easter break want to go somewhere they can do something on Sunday and how many Branson attractions are actually open on Easter?

What do you all think Friday and Saturday this week will be like?  Weather looks colder and maybe rainy.

This is Young Heathens Weekend.  It’ll be stupid busy with teenagers without adult supervision.  Massive line cutting and overall rude behavior.  It really is the worst weekend of the entire year.  It ticks me off too as these as supposed to be “Christians” too.  Takes the park a good week to recover from the vandalism.

Crap, I just noticed that, I was just looking at potential cold rainy weather and figured it would be slow.  I guess I will cancel my room at the Classic and maybe go the following weekend.

So my original plan was Thursday Friday and Saturday but they are closed Thursday so we were going Friday and Saturday.  Won't these "Christians" be in school Friday?  Which is supposed to have PM rain. That leaves Saturday which looks like high is 48.  I am reading their website and it talks about youth groups.  I take that to mean bus load after bus load of kids?  Is that correct?  If so, they will be there rain or shine I would think.

LOL>.. you should be good on Friday,  Yes, Bus load after Bus load after Bus load of "Young Christians (that act like little spoiled heathens)..  I am sure they will be there.. The City plans several "events" just for the them that weekend..

OK>  Dont get me wrong,  I think what the park is doing is a great idea, the special effort they put out for the Young Christians is awesome..!!  I love their effort...  The majority of the kids are fine, well behaved and more than deserve this weekend....
   
BUT those few kids., the troublemakers...... really take the fun our of it for everyone else..
