I wonder if the lines will be any shorter since it's rather chilly out (although not bad if sunny). I wouldn't want to stand in am hour long line in weather like today!

Durham lines are shorter and crowds are smaller so you can wander around and check out what you want. You don't feel like you have to just jump on a line because it will take an hour.

Thanks for the heads up. There will be sledding! I think I'll take my girls there after Sunday school tomorrow. :-)

mskb, it's supposed to be 45 degrees tomorrow! It will feel like a heat wave!

It will have shorter lines and way less people because of the cold. In the summer the lines can be quite long at the rodeos in both Durham and Raleigh.

I took my girls over there today about 1:30 PM. It was packed - sunny day and 50 degrees after the cold we were having would explain that. We drove around about 8 times and couldn't find a parking spot. Then I saw the long line for the sledding and decided, it wasn't worth it, so we left. Such a shame, because it looked like a lot of fun.

You should've tried parking in the deck nearby like we did (then again, we came at around 12:45). The line was quite long, with about a 25 minute wait, but we held the spot in line and ate while the kids played in the snow area to the side. We ended up only going down the hill twice, and spent a lot more time in the snow play area. The kids definitely had a blast, and we hung around til a little bit past 3.

Oh, I didn't even see a parking deck. But it was pushing it for us to go the event anyway. My daughter and I did a scout overnight last night and were exhausted and then she went to Sunday school for a few hours, so we thought we'd just pop out of the car and check it out for a few minutes, but it wasn't meant to be. And then when we saw the sledding line, I gave up. It did look like it would be a fun afternoon!

I got there around 12:30 and the lines weren't bad save for a few trucks. We hit about 6-7 and were so full and left by 1:30 ready for the next event in March!

Well with some real snow coming tomorrow, it looks like it doesn't matter that we missed the sledding hill yesterday!
