Hurricane Harbor Operating Calendar

Recommended Posts

It's a shame that weather caused the theme park's opening weekend to be delayed almost a week and now it looks like the same thing is going to happen with Hurricane Harbor. If the forecast stays the same, there will be rain most of the day.

I pulled up there just as they closed at 3. What was weird was at 3, the weather had returned to clear and was sunny and warm again. Guess if it rains just for a short time, they cancel the rest of the day.

Maybe the crowd was really low and it wasn't worth staying open?

Most likely.

Local news said it has rained for six weekends in a row.

That is part of the problem when you open a waterpark only on weekends in June.

 Who would go on weekdays? School is still in session in New Jersey until the latter part of the month. It is hard to get lifeguards let alone guests.

If Hurricane Harbor was part of the theme park, I could see them open with limited operations (like SFNE) but I understand why they aren't open with the separate gate. Some schools probably wouldn't want students going to the water park even if it was included with theme park admission. Even Dorney that has always had daily operation for Wildwater Kingdom after Memorial Day was scheduled to be closed Tuesday - Thursday that week probably because of low attendance.

HH used to be open every day in June until one unusually cool June. After that year they reduced to weekend only for much of June. Would not be surprised if they reduce times even more next year as a response to the string of bad weekends this year. As for Dorney, their operations have been declining for a few years now with all the cutbacks they are doing. Even then, they still manage to be open most weekdays in June, as well as Hershey. The Boardwak at Hershey was full of school trip kids last week, as well as many familes including both parents. You be surprised how often people take off and pull their kids from school. Even Raging Waters in Wildwood is open weekdays in June. HH is sadly a poorly operated park, especially with their poorly retrofitted flash pass system. 

 

There is a risk only being two days a week, it is effectively putting all your eggs in one basket. Get a two day storm spell and you have a completely lost week.
