Hi,

Can anyone help? My Dad is coming over from the UK for his 60th birthday and would like to mark the occasion with a ride on a roller coaster. Trouble is, he is here the weekend of the 10th/11th November and I can't find any parks near me which are open. We are in Bergen county, north Jersey.

Any suggestions?

You're probably out of luck. I think pretty much everything driving distance in our area closes the weekend before Halloween, although Hershey is open that first weekend of November.

I think it's awesome, though, that your Dad wants to do that. Happy birthday to him!

That's my B-day weekend too! :~)
I WISH there was someplace we could go for coaster riding in the winter without an airplane but unfortunately there's nothing in our area. The only parks that are open year round are in the south and on the west coast where the weather is warmer.

Dollywood is open on weekends in November, but that would be a 10 to 11 hour drive for you. So far that's the closest park to you that I have found that will be open. I'll keep looking.

I'm a November child also. It sucks that the parks are always closed. You can still take him to Ocean City, if they have open rides there. I hope your dad enjoy's his B-day!!
