Definitely the best days to go are Monday- Thursday. Reasons why. is not overpack of people so you can get in any rides you want without the big waiting line they always have on weekends . So if you have the chance go on weekdays

Maybe you could call the park and ask them. We get season tickets every year, so have no idea how much other things cost. Hope you get an answer!!

Yeah, that's another thing the park seems to operate on their schedule. If they don't feel like opening something they won't or if they want to close something early they will and will make a lame excuse. Also the bathrooms... More
