If you want proof of that, just look at the social media reaction to the Dixie Stampede name change. Ay-yi-yi...
That coaster dad [314] and that coaster kiddo [165]. Road trip buddies for life.
Dad's faves: Fury 325. Phantom's Revenge. Intimidator 305. El Toro. Skyrush.

I guess I will break down my thoughts a little bit. I will say that I, as well as a majority of people in this part of the country don't like for businesses to be open on major holidays. That being said, I'm sure that there is a decent potential for them to do quite a bit of business (and also a potential for this to be a flop, but they won't know until they try it.) Since we are talking about a chain that is in turmoil and we are talking about the park that seems to be shouldering the biggest portion of the burden as far as making money goes, this makes sense from a business standpoint. Call me on the fence on this one. If I were local I would not attend as it's just too much against everything I know. But if it could possibly help the chain that I love, by all means.

This.

Usually if they open, people will come. I think it'll probably be a big success. I wouldn't go personally though, because I think *everything* should be closed on major holidays like christmas and thanksgiving. Those days should be kept sacred. I just have too many scars from when I worked in retail and completely and totally resenting having to work on those days.

Who are these people? Employees or guests?

^ Both. I mean I get why some people are upset but you have to vote with your dollars and not go if it's that big of a deal. That's the only way it will stop. It's a business, after all, and other parks make huge bank on the holidays and they are clearly betting the same.

Some people end up having 2 or more family get-togethers on different days, and then some end up with their 1 or 2 on a different day other than Christmas. I know the last xmas Eve was the last really nice day of the season and SFA was closed, so they may at least change that. It does seem different than Florida, where lots of people aren't having the traditional celebration, at least not while they're there.

To be honest, if I lived close enough to use this as an escape from family on Christmas, I probably would.

I mean the park doesn’t open until 2pm on Christmas. Even if employees have to be at their post a couple hours earlier, the majority of Christmas festivities can still be had before work.

I could see some families making a Christmas Day visit to BGW part of their own Christmas traditions. It's an interesting experiment, and I'm curious to see how it pans out.
