Clearing the Park

There is a lot of work that goes into clearing the park after a snowstorm. With more than 350 acres, there is a lot of ground to clean for our guests to ensure their safety. While we do our best to clear the park for our guests, sometimes it can take a bit longer than planned. Huge volumes of snow covering the park as well as overnight freezing caused treacherous pathways throughout the park.
These past few days we have recruited more than 200 Team Members to help remove the snow. Everyone from landscaping crews, to ground maintenance and even park operations stepped in to help clear the inside of the park. Equipped with snow shovels, snow blowers, fire hoses and brooms, they took over the park to make it safe. Loads of Ice Melt and sand also came in handy to remove the ice cover.
As many vehicles as we could find were driven into the park to help remove the snow. Everything from carts, to trucks and even front end loaders were used. A very time consuming process, but effective. The snow was then taken to snow collection points located in the back area of our park as well as parking lots. Numerous mountains of snow have been created.
Slowly but surely the park has been cleaned and deemed safe for our guests. We hope you have a great time during your visit and appreciate all of the help and work that went into clearing the park after one of our biggest snowstorms in decades.
