Scattered Thunderstorms

Monday, August 25, 2014 11:58 AM

I'm going to Cedar Point tomorrow, and the weather reports have constantly been changing on me, but ever since yesterday, they've consistently been forcasting thunderstorms from 2-8pm. From 2-5 it's 40% scattered thunderstorms, and seeing as all rides close during t-storms I'm not sure if it's worth it. Especially since it's going up to 70% thunderstorms (not even scattered or isolated) later in the evening.

I've also heard that the weather there is pretty bipolar though. Is there a chance that the weather reports will change, even though it's tomorrow?

P.S. Do they let you get free water with the R&R wristband? Or does water not count as a "soft drink"?

GO!
It will not be busy at all! Schools and Colleges have started already. The weather changes in Ohio all the time, you should be fine.

I'd go. If the forecast is scattered it may not rain at all. I've been there and seen very dark skies buy rain missed CP completely. If it does rain buy only for a short time and the storms are separated by 2 or 3 hours you'll still get lots of riding in.

Lighting strikes are something that can shut some rides down even if it's not raining. So that would be my only concern, but even with those shutdowns once the radar is clear of lightning strikes you should be OK.

By a poncho at a $1 store and bring it along and you'll be fine.

Thanks for the fast answers!! Plus even if it does rain, that'll hopefully mean shorter lines.

This might also help (scroll down to "Weather Conditions that Affect Rides" and "Lightning and Severe Thunderstorms").
