As you probably guessed when you looked out the window this morning, Elitch Gardens did not open for the season today as planned.

According to a tweet early this morning, the park will open tomorrow instead. As of this morning, the forecast is calling for a high of 54 then.

For now, you’ll just have to keep daydreaming about being spun around at 50 mph while 17 stories off the ground.
