You definitely want Old Time Christmas. The after-7 free is not running during Pumpkin Fest, but it will be again for Christmas. Just keep in mind that SDC is very strict on operating temperatures for the coasters, so you want to go while it stays above 45°F. They start closing rides at 42°, and that's as measured at the top of the lift, so as long as ground temp is 45° or more, you're all right.

Fri-Sat will give you the most time in the park on a one day ticket. For example, you could go on Fri Nov. 8 from 7 to 9 and on Sat Nov. 9 from 11 to 9:30. It'll be busy, but ride queues may not be too bad depending on weather. If the high is in the 50s, smooth sailing. If it's 70 or so, I'd recommend Trailblazer Pass.

Awesome, that's exactly the kind of advice I was looking for!

I was probably leaning towards Christmas anyway, but wanted to get first hand confirmation. Also was pretty sure all the rides were open, but not necessarily how long the lines would be. Thanks for the insight.

Here are the specific temperature guidelines if you care. The park is nice enough to post them.

Yeah it will be great to see how all this will look when the ride opens next spring. Loving the landscaping work being done.

Looking for a little help here. Heading to the park next friday and I am looking for any discount on tickets that don't include listening to a timeshare sales pitch. Last year they had a great deal on their website but don't seem to be offering it again this year. Do any stores sell discount tickets besides the special thursday tickets? Thanks in advance for the help.
