If it's more than 4 days in advance, the forecast is no more accurate than the past statistical average - so I'd wait until it gets closer before getting worried.

I really love this pin collecting idea. Planning on going to the park opening day and will be able to get the pin. Also would love to strive for 25 visits in one year. I think my record for most visits in a season is 18.

I usually defer to The Master on this, but as of this AM, Accuweather says it'll be partly cloudy but dry.

 

That said, it could change in an hour or a day.  I wouldn't even worry about it until the 4th.

Generally they can't accurately predict weather more than a week ahead. But if there are showers, bring a bar of soap!

The park uses Weather Bug to make all of their weather-related decisions. So far the Weather Bug app is saying partly cloudy and 62 degrees. If that holds then we have perfect weather, but I feel like we can't be sure until Saturday actually gets here. I'll be there either way 😁

When the park opens on next Saturday. Will be updated costumes for Looney Tunes characters, and will be return of DC Comics characters aka Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, etc... appearing at the park this year?

I've had a Season Pass/Membership since 2012, and I've never actually been to opening day yet. I've been to the park on the second operating day, but never the first.

 

This year I'm finally going to be able to make it out for the parks official opening day. I'm very excited and the weather looks pretty warm!

Now forecast says there will be morning showers on this Saturday. Is the park will still opening on its opening day? Is the rain is gonna end by 10 AM or 8 AM? I hope weather's forecast changes to just mostly cloudy or partly cloudy for the opening day.

What the hell terrible weather app are you looking at?  All the ones I've looked at are showing cloudy skies in the AM, no rain.

Dude, relax. Weather reports are outrageously unreliable until about three days out. Don't bother checking until Thursday.

Looks like El Toro will be getting some new track!

^ Superman also getting repainting too! I hope Batman, Kingda Ka, Bizzaro and Nitro will getting repainting too this year (blue track with dark supports).

The park is getting more park improving this year.

This may be very soon to tease a hint for a new coaster is coming in next year. (Hope it's RMC type like a customized Raptor).

There’s two possiblities after these improvements

1. They’re doing them to make the park look good in case a ride that would significantly increase attendance from a major new ride/section

2. (Most likely) the park spent the money that would go towards said project on park improvements

How exactly does this tease a new coaster?

Hopefully I can make it for Opening Day! Excited as hell to be back there, and even though a lot of stuff will probably be closed, I'm still hyped. I'm glad to see a lot of park maintenance, hopefully this means Nitro will be repainted as well.

Painting rides, especially roller coasters, costs a lot more than you think it does. We may see Kingda Ka and Nitro painted in the near future, but I highly doubt any other coasters will get painted this year.
