Theme parks and coasters in the snow

With all the snow we have gotten lately, it got me thinking about starting a thread where you can post pictures of your favorite coaster or theme park in the snow.

I will start it off with a few of my own.

Here's a couple of snow shots, taken of our Coaster at
Playland (PNE) in Vancouver. The shots aren't mine, but taken
by the park, for a set of postcards they put out a few
years back.

I once had a strange set of circumstances happen and...

About 10 years ago now, I spent my favorite night ever in a park. It was January, and it had snowed a bunch earlier that day. The park was closed and had been for a few months, and wouldn't open for a few more. I got to ride along as a friend slowly drove (more like idled) through the midways, and he basically toured me throughout the entire thing. We were the ONLY two people out in the park.

There was snow everywhere. All the park's lights were on. It was beautiful.

^ That does appear to be OTAG.

Love this thread idea. I've always thought it was cool to see coasters in the snow, seems oddly peaceful. Luckily I don't live in the snow (I'm not a fan) but that sadly mean I don't get to share any cool photos. Keep em coming though!

My favorite video has to be Robb and Elissa's POV of Big Boom in Japan!

Found this photo online of Mean Streak in the snow. It's pretty pretty.
