Bonus Weekend Ride Availability

I always thought that the Friday nights of Bonus Weekends had limited ride availability, just like Fridays during HalloWeekends. However on the CP website I can find no mention of what rides are open tonight. Does anyone know what is open tonight?

I don't think CP limits rides on Friday until hollow weekends, but don't quote me on that

I think the limited ride availability applies to all the bonus weekends. Send an email to or call (419)627-2350 to find out for sure.

"On Friday nights, the historic amusement park will be open from 6-11 p.m. with a limited ride offering; some rides and attractions will not be open."

As far as exactly what rides are closed, I couldn't find a list. It could be that they're playing that part by ear.

Wicked Twister was originally not supposed to be open on Friday's, but the plan has kind of changed with Top Thrill Dragster being down indefinitely. Mantis also isn't open on Fridays. *** Edited 9/9/2005 3:21:53 PM UTC by WaterDummy***


Is this the first year that Bonus Weekends has been extended to include Friday Nights? I thought Halloweekends was the only time CP was open on Fridays after Labor Day.

Maybe this will help:

278 coasters and still counting!

Why do they have limited ride availability anyways?

We'll miss you MrScott and Pete

I think it's mostly because a large number of their employees are students. And, college students especially since they have classes and would need to commute, are unable to get there to work the Friday evening, but can get there to work a Saturday and/or Sunday. *** Edited 9/9/2005 8:09:37 PM UTC by DBCP***

Plus limited availability would push away most guests because they think 'Oh why go if I can only ride a few rides', and it gives people like us a chance to ride with little crowds. Some of my best riding has been on Bonus/Halloweekends Fridays.

Yep, this passed Friday was awesome! Everything that was open was a walk-on all night. A lot of the small food stands and many games were closed. Most, if not all, of the big coasters were open.

I'm exhaused after being there 3 days in a row!
