There is a 60% chance of rain tomorrow with thunderstorms starting after 2pm. I am coming from MD should I risk it and go or reschedule? Someone help I really want to go!

If you really want to go, you should go. I am not familiar with the park, but I bet there are some rides that can run in rain (indoor attractions). Also, it should be less crowded!

I always go to Cedar Point when it storms, but I do have a season pass so... See, up in northern Ohio, the rain just seems to break up and it rarely holds up. I don't know how it is done there.

That's one of our favorite times, since the weather usually scares off big crowds.

I usually go during a storm, especially if it's part of a trip I'm already on. If there are T-Storms they only last about 30 min., then all the rides open back up.

Like everyone else has said, lines and crowds are not nearly as bad during stromy times. I hope the weather holds up for you, Kings Dominion has some great rides.

Definetly do Volcano if you haven't already. The line is usually long, but it's worth. Also, if you have time, wait for the 1st row, it's so worth it!
