Disaster, Terminator, Poseidon's Fury closed on quieter days?

Hi,

I'm visiting mid-week during the 2nd week of October, and worried that attractions like Disaster, Terminator, Poseidon's Fury might be closed.

I looked at the 'Show Times' section on the official website and for example in September it only listed a few dates during the entire month and there is nothing listed for October, does this mean these sorts of attractions with shows are usually closed on quieter days?

If so, pretty shocking that a major 'must-see' attraction like Disaster is closed!

Thanks in advance for any help on this

They might not have the first show until 11 am or so but they should not be closed.

Nothing should be closed unless it's being rehabbed and none of those attractions are listed so you should be OK. Remember...the show times vary based on park hours so they tend to change regularly. The best source will be your park map...make sure you grab one when you arrive.

None of them should be closed unless they are being rehabbed..They DO run on a fewer show schedule during slower times of year, but they are still operating

i'm there in that time period and have not seen them closed.
because of shorter park hours, there are less show times for some of the days.

like damo stated, a later start for the first shows/rides.
