So KD has posted their Operating Calendar through Labor Day, as well as Soak City's. The first thing you will notice is that none of the dates for Haunt are up which I don't ever recall them not posting them at the same time as the regular season hours. The other thing is that they are ending daily operation on the last full week of August which they have never done before.

Opening Day is set for March 25th.

This maybe KD's shortest season ever.

It looks like they added three Fridays in April to the 2017 schedule, which they haven't had in previous years. So, they lost four days but gained three.

I did notice that there are more 11:30 openings this year, especially in the spring, which is disappointing. I guess the operating budget has been cut. Frowning

No way they're getting rid of their Halloween Haunt or whatever, I know it is wildly popular though have not been since I was like 12 years old. They're probably re-vamping or re-tweaking the whole Haunt and dates and what not, who knows.

Haunt is the main reason I get season passes, probably would not get them if it were not for that.

They normally have a few weekend days in September that are blacked out private events, maybe getting the details on those dates nailed down is a factor.

ton of different factors at play here, but one thing is for (almost) certain: the Haunt is not going anywhere guys

Nobody said Haunt was going anywhere, just that the hours haven't been posted yet.

What coaster is clossing this year? You would figure since Shockwave was announced mid season and Hurler was Media day, that something would have shown up by now.

I just hope Planet Snoopy stays open longer during haunt. Make sure I get on those new rides while lines are short! Shall be lit.

Your original post implied that "they have never not posted the hours for Haunt before" and that "This maybe KD's shortest season ever." So yeah, nobody said it, but you heavily insinuated it.

I disagree I never thought from the post that it was going away. They just stated the facts.

Last year they didn't post Haunt hours (rather, anything after Labor Day) until later in the season.

I thought there were heavy implications of the Haunt going away in the O.P., I sincerely apologize. I guess reading online interpreting the context/tone of what was said, I took in the wrong way. Sorry guys.

There's a special presentation the night of the 24th. Based on their last attempt at this, I can comfortably say

The full calendar has not yet been posted, but the Haunt page says "Haunt Will Return Fall 2017" -- not that there was much doubt that it was going anywhere but was mentioned above briefly...
