Scheduled Attractions & Operating Schedule for September 16

Thank you for choosing Idlewild & SoakZone as your place for summer family FUN! We are very pleased to have you visit with us.

To assist you with planning your day, we are providing a list of rides and attractions that are scheduled* to operate:

Idlewild & SoakZone will be running in Limited Operation during our post-Summer fall events: Fall of the Leaf, Daniel Tiger Fall Fest and Hallowboo! The majority of our staff is made up of High School and College students who, in August, return back to college or attend school related extracurricular activities such as athletic and band camps. We do our best to keep the park staffed and offer as many attractions as possible to our valued guests. Limited operation means that some rides, attractions, small food stands, and games may be closed. During this time, all areas of the park are open, but some of the rides and attractions may open late, close early, or not open at all. If you are visiting after Labor Day (September 4), the SoakZone will also be closed. Guests visiting during these limited operating dates with a paid admission will receive a return visit ticket valid for much of next summer. (Season Pass and comp admissions not eligible). Thank you.

Please Note: The SoakZone is closed for the season.
