You know its threads like this that shows how much more excited people are for DCA these days. I dont think anyone wouldve been interested in staying in the joint past 9 p.m. 5 years ago! Based on the crowd levels, certainly didnt feel like it. Now everyone wants to keep the place open as long as DL so they can stay in it all night. Unreal!
I would probably love for DCA to stay open up to midnight come 2012, but I dont see that as happening either. Like others said, no way do you want TWO parks exiting at the same time. It would be complete havoc. If both park had different parking lots, trams, etc, then maybe. But no I doubt that will ever happen.
That said, it does kind of suck DCA wont get longer hours because it really is becoming a worthy night time park. It should be open to 11 p.m. minimum by next year with BVS and CL looking like they will be amazing places to hang out at night in, WOC will keep people coming of course and we will have Electronica or some other dance event, it just FEELS right to keep the park open as long as possible.
I do like the idea someone mentioned and rotate the times, DL open til midnight some weekends, DCA others. Dont see that anytime soon, but who knows 5-10 years down the line.
