The only reasons to close tonight are for storm prep or projected low attendance. It's weird that they wouldn't just announce a closure for the full weekend if they're planning on prepping the place for the storm though. The forecast for tonight is the best of the weekend by far (and the only day where you would actually consider visiting a theme park).

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

Might have a chance to spend Oct 12 at Carowinds.
Not super interested in Scarowinds (and I kinda have to leave in the afternoon anyway).

Are there any seasonal ride closures or the like that might affect the visit? From queue-times it looks like the park still operates fairly normally during its non-Haunt times in the fall. Any kind of coupon or discount advice is also greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance

^ You’ll be at Scarowinds as the park is only open from 7pm to 12pm. Wait the 12th the park is closed. However, just the rapids ride and the looping ship, Southern Star, are closed for the season and Screamweaver the enterprise is typically closed and used as an overflow ride.

Looking pretty cool so far. I'm interested to see how it turns out.
