We went to have a good time on a Sunday, and we did just that. My only complaint was that for $50/person (and an insane $20 parking fee) there were at least 3 main coasters that were down, and even the tower ride was missing...More

Under 18 are allowed without parents during the day. Evening events (after 6pm? not sure) require an adult for those under 18. May want to call to be sure.
