It's too early to speculate on whether the park will be open this Sunday. We will have to assess the storm track and will open only if the park is safe for guests and employees. Guests are encouraged to call (800) 343-7946, visit, or visit our Facebook or Twitter feeds for the latest information about the park operating schedule and activities. Thank you for your understanding, and please be safe.


The College of W&M
All Homecoming events today are still on schedule. Decisions regarding Saturday's events have not been made but we do anticipate some changes will be necessary due to the storm. Please continue to call the Alumni Association's weather line at 757-221-1184 and check periodically for scheduling updates as weather conditions change.
