I'm doing a roadtrip from Toronto with my son and his friend (17 &18) before they start university in September. We're going the last week of August (Wed-Thursday) which looks like a very quiet time for the park. We plan to stay at the Breakers so non-roller coaster mother can wander the park but go back to hotel whenever I want. Before I book the hotel, I wanted to get some feedback on whether buying the passes with the hotel reservation is the best deal or whether there's a better deal when the park is so quiet. I'm just concerned that if there are 2 days of rain we may not get to do much at the parks and we're out 3 tickets for 2 days. Also, we know the park hours are shorter these days, but so should be the lines. Are there any other "cons" to going at that time. What rides beside the ferris wheel and kiddie rides can I do? Thanks for any suggestions.
