    Anyone planning on going down to Great Adventure this weekend for some last Toro & Ka rides for the season? I'm thinking about going down on Saturday.

    I think ET and some others will remain open depending on weather thru Nov and maybe into Dec.

    Depends on the weather. I heard it was open some last year during Nov and Dec. I think 40 degrees is the magic number - LOL

    I don't know. I asked a friend about ET and she said yes. We didn't go last year as Casey was in FL working for the mouse until January. Maybe she meant ET was open in the weeks before Holiday in the Park. Even without ET it will be worth the trip.

    I didn't realize they were still open! I thought they closed down until the Holiday in the Park event started. I just might have to try and get down there!

    Yup - they're staying open until after New Year's - weekends only of course, except Thanksgiving & Christmas, but minus the Fright Fest themeing...

    Great America got their JL open for Memorial Day 2016. I don't think they had much done at this point last year. We were watching progress very closely there because we were going to have our one chance to ride it mid June.
