After announcing an all-new year-round operating schedule, this popular theme park released details on the attractions and experiences available this holiday season.

While most fans are used to visiting their favorite theme park all year round, many theme parks in America have to shut their gates yearly due to severe weather affecting many states during winter, mainly northern locations. However, a popular theme park recently announced an all-new year-round operating schedule to welcome Guests for more fun throughout the year.
