One of those October weekends (and that last weekend in April) is for park buyouts, the other October weekend is for the Antique Auto show that uses the entire parking lot.

It gives them all that time to put up no decorations and set up no haunts for Hersheypark in the Dark.

Hershey is always closed those first few weeks in October. HPITD only runs the last three weekends, its been this way since at least 2014. I know this because HPITD is generally the only time of year I ever go to the park.

That could definitely be as sign. However, it could also just a test run, not indicating an opening. If the trains have already been assembled on the track, they would need to run the tracks every now and then to prevent wheels from becoming square. However, I honestly don't see hersheypark not opening this year. I do wonder how abysmal the operations are gonna ve. :roll:

The trains aren't left on wheels when in the maintenance area so they won't go square. Testing now isn't really a sign of anything, it's just the next logical step to handing over the ride to Hersheypark so there's no reason to not test it now if they are able to, and then if/when the park opens, the ride will be ready if they wish to open it this season. It also makes sense to get the testing done now so it doesn't hold up periphery work like completing the new entrance area.

When they “go square” they can re-sell them to Great Adventure for use on Nitro
