I was there when it was snowing. Be careful what you wish for. Streets got slick very quick. It did not take long for them to announce that they would be closing early. It was like get your stuff and get out.

^ Me too.  We were parked in Lot 3 with a bit of a hill to climb to get out so I was glad they closed the park when they did before the road got icy.  This was during OTC around 5 years or so ago.

Are there any parks in snow country that operate when it's snowing?

SDC is far from snow country, so I wouldn't expect them to operate during snow.

Went Sunday,  park was very empty as it was hot, hot, hot. All coasters were running and quick to get on . Seems like lot two and maybe a sprinkling of cars in lot three were used. The preferred lot was nearly empty. I love the park that empty but don't like to see it from a business perspective.

^ Agree but they should more than make up for it during Pumpkin Nights and OTC providing they don't have a long run of bad weather.  As for the low crowds you can certainly tell when school starts up again.

Looks like we're finally going to get to go on either 9/30 or 10/1, probably the latter (as it a Thursday), but weather will play a role in the decision.  It's been almost two years!

Arkansas passed a law banning school from starting before Labor Day, because most schools at the time didn't have air conditioning.

Arkansas in September can be hot as hell.

After school consolidation, and the state mandating more school days per year, that somehow went by the wayside.
