Rain policy... What rain policy??
Honestly, unless its a total downpour, the rides should stay open, I know there are specifics for certain rides, IE, the yo-yo closes when the wind is too high, and Scooby doo's haunted mansion generally stays open all the time, same for Action theatre. Ricochet closes with the slightest drop of rain tho.
As for best seats. Hurler, Your on your own there... sorry
Afterburn, front if you want a ride with the best view, back if you want a ride that throws you around a bit more.
Nighthawk, the row doesnt really make much of a difference view wise, and they assign you a row anyways.
Cyclone, Back, you get a nice little pop of airtime on the first drop.
