Some friends and I are thinking of going to Haunt Thanksgiving weekend. I’ve never been before. How busy is it typically? Would the Sunday night likely be less busy than the Saturday? How busy are the rides?

Thanks!

When I grow up, I want to breed donkeys!

Which it is and always has been. Different origins than the American one. To answer the post, yes Wonderland will be extremely busy those days. Sunday slightly better than Sat.

I'm surprised they wouldn't find a way to get Guardian or Thunder Run included on that list since they have so few indoor rides.
Top 3 Wood- Lightning Rod, Voyage, Coaster (PNE Playland)
Top 3 Steel- Steel Vengeance, Untamed, Expedition GeForce

Stocking Stuffers and Festive Funnel Cakes are open now at Canada's Wonderland. Yesterday, I ate an Egg Nog Funnel Cake.
It had egg nog drizzle, a gingerbread cookie, pomegranate seeds, red and green sprinkles, and ice cream. mmmmmm . . .
They also have Candy Cane and GingerBread Funnel Cakes. The Stocking Stuffers shop looks beautiful. I know they have to set up in advance, but I am going to have a Candy Cane Funnel Cake at Halloween Haunt. I am taking my group on the first weekend. This is the earliest I have ever gone to Haunt, but after the experience from last year. It was ridiculously busy last year so I am going to see just how empty everyone says it is on the first weekend. I am also going on Canadian Thanksgiving weekend.

They're probably trying to rev up interest in the Winterfest. I saw it and rolled my eyes... but it did look rather festive.

^ That's cool. Three years ago, I bought Christmas tree ornaments, on display,
in both Disneyland and Knott's. So that happens everywhere, obviously. But still,
to find it in mid-September, still seems kind of wierd to me, lol. :smile:
