Wednesday - March 23rd, 2016
Opening Day 2016! It seems like it was just yesterday that it was Holiday in the Park. Even with an extremely abbreviated off-season, the park really brought everything together in just a few months, offering guests a wonderful kick-off to the new season. Add in a dose of above normal temps and some glorious sunshine and whamo - a great day at the park!
