Put on a scarf, gloves and a friggin' hat, sit down, shut up and keep your hands inside the ride at all times.
Because people are bitches.
Honestly I'd much rather go to a park when it's in the 30's than some of those brutal 100+ degree, ridiculous humidity days we experienced at the Florida parks last June. You can dress for the cold. You can'd do anything about heat and humidity.
Riding coasters in the cold is the best, in part because of the absurdity of it all but also because it's just flat-out fun. It's also terrific drinking weather (especially since parks always roll out warm, spiked deliciousness) and tons of firepits.
... OMG can it be Holiday in the Park like... now?
