The 2014 Operating Calendar is now available! The park opens on Friday, May 2nd. The park is open Friday-Sunday in May, and then daily beginning on May 23rd through Labor Day. Midnight closes are gone, but the park is open until 11:00pm every Saturday in July and August through August 23rd. The park closes early at 7:30pm for a private event on August 18th and 19th. The park is also closed the first weekend in September for a private event. Haunt begins Friday, September 12th and runs through November 2nd. It's good to see the park open in November this year! Wildwater Kingdom opens May 24th and is open through Labor Day. 10am-8pm all Saturdays in July through August 3rd, plus on July 4th. 10am-7pm most days through July and August.

I'm glad to see they are still going to be open on Friday nights in September for Haunt. Due to low attendance this past year on Friday nights in SeptemberGreat Adventure is only going to be open on Friday nights in October so I'll probably go to Haunt more this year than last year.

I do not understand why WWK is open until 8pm except on select days. Kings Island's Soak City and Kings Dominion's WaterWorks (as well as Wild Water Kingdom in Ohio) are open until 8pm more than half of their operating days (Soak City is open till eight all but five operating days).
In fairness, the Ohio parks are closer to the western side of the time zone. Also none of these other water parks open before 11am (WaterWorks does not open this season before noon, which I also do not understand).

It looks like there is only on day the park is closed in September for a private event. If I am not mistaken, the 7th previously was scheduled for a buy-out.

That's good for anyone planning to go to the park today. It should be empty with the NFL games starting and the first weekend after school starting and people have other things to deal with besides amusement parks.

My youngest son went to the park today, but I wasn't feeling it (for a number of reasons). Glad he got there on a somewhat historic day....the latest "last day" in park history.

And now, Dorney sleeps.

Yesterday was a nice finish to the 2014 season. The weather kept many people away and even with 1 train on everything there were no lines.
