I think the Friday daytime hours in April and May are a bit odd. I guess they are actively targeting Pre-K now.

I think many in the general area follow CWS with alternating Fridays off from work. I'm guessing it helps with spring field trips too.

But will those factors generate enough revenue to fund the park on those days? Wouldn't evening hours bring in more people? Additionally, they always have massive staffing problems.

The calendar on the web site now shows hours for September and October.

It shows closed on Friday Sep 22nd and then open until midnight on Saturday Sep 23rd, so I wonder if Haunt will start on a Saturday night instead of a Friday as usual?

I can somewhat understand it since opening night on a Friday has very low attendance and that's one reason why I go on opening night. Looks like I'll be going on the 29th.

In the past, they've experimented with the first Sunday being non-Haunt as well as other years not having opening on Friday. I can imagine it might help with staffing/training too. The interesting thing this year is open Sunday before Columbus Day 'til midnight.

Exactly, that's why I am always there on opening Friday night, very light attendance as opposed to Saturdays. But if it starts on the prior Saturday that's the weekend prior to the State Fair (which brings along the heavy traffic at night) I'll give it a try, and then the next Friday too...
