They reserve the right to close the gate early or temporarily to limit the number of guests per the capacity limits and maintain a safe environment. The gate attendant can provide further information if needed.  The staff will continue to work with the members to schedule additional pumpkin train events as the season progresses. They need to make sure they have enough members and equipment available to operate and provide a safe experience.
