We're going to the park the first weekend of the Food and Wine Festival. Will the park be slammed? We usually get Quick Queue passes, but I also don't want to purchase them if it's one of those events where people focus very little on rides. I hate looking like an idiot and using Fast Pass Lines when there are only a few people in line. More importantly... will Le Scoot be open that early in the year?
I asked before, but I don't think anyone got around to answering my questions. Plenty of other topics to get side tracked on, so I understand.
hi all. my family (wife and 2 kids aged 8 and 11) are trying to figure out what day to go to the park during spring break.
we are trying to decide between going a weekday or the weekend.
generally, we would normally lean towards a weekday for the smaller lines, but a couple years back we went to Kings Dominion on a weekday in early spring, and we were disappointed because while all of the major rides were running, many of the restaurants and snack stands were closed, including Country Kitchen and all of the Dippin' Dots stands.
my question is would we find a similar situation at BGW on a mid-April weekday, or is it more of a fully up and running affair?
Capsfan, I guess it boils down to priorities. I go to the parks for the rides, and smaller lines always makes it for me. But I guess, if you really have to have all the dippy dot stands open..... I can get dippy dots at my local mall, I can't get good rides at the mall. Sorry to be so snarky, but c'mon now.
