24 Hour Exit Option For West Side
posted: February 04, 2005
Although we haven't received the official announcement, FOP has learned that a new automatic gate has been installed, and is functional, on the West Side.
This means that anyone arriving at the West Side before regular West Side closing hours can exit ANY time. No more fines - no more racing down from the High Peaks.
Note! You still CANNOT enter the West Side after standard park closing hours.
More information to follow from the Park.
