Vote of the week: Rain at a theme park
Written by Robert Niles
The rain is pouring today in Los Angeles, but I suspect you'd still see plenty of folks making the drive to Anaheim, spending the day at Disneyland.Tweet
Let's talk today about theme parks in the rain. Typically, rain drives visitors from theme parks like smog from the sky. Folks just don't want to shell out $50+ per person to schlep around in a poncho all day. If you're visiting a park for roller coasters, your day's even worse. Many coasters will not operate in the rain, and on those which do, rain drops become icy bullets, pelting your skin at high speed. Ugh.
But for other visitors... rain means shorter lines, cooler temperatures and a more relaxed staff, likely to "sure, stay on and ride again. There's no one else waiting."
So, which is it for you?
Tell us in the comments your favorite, or worst, experience on a rainy day in a theme park.
