Vote of the week: Theme parks in the snow?
Written by Robert Niles
How would you like to visit a theme park in the snow?
I know that many Theme Park Insider readers around America are enjoying a "snow day" today, with winter storms making their way across the country. And more than a few of you might be daydreaming about escaping to a nice, warm Florida or California theme park.
But theme parks don't always operate in the warm sunshine. Tokyo Disneyland recently got buried in a snow storm:

And Disneyland Paris gets its share of snowfall, too.
Heck, it's not unheard of for the Orlando theme parks to see a stray flake every decade or so.
And in Southern California? Well, forget about snow in Anaheim. (But if you crave winter, just drive up into our mountains. Only an hour away!)
Regional theme parks have tried snow-covered holiday events from time to time. I remember the WinterFest event at Kings Island in Ohio, though my wife starts shivering uncontrollably each time I mention it.
Let's make this a Vote of the Week. What do you think about visit a snow-covered, winter-wonderland, temperatures-below-freezing theme park?
