Rain policy

I cannot remember nor find info on SDC's rain policy. Is there one anymore? Website suggests indoor activities so I was unsure if there is one. We are headed down next weekend and it says as of right now 50% chance. Of course it could change but I have never gone when there was such a big chance. Thanks if anyone can help me with this info.

I am trying to decided for us too. We want to come on this Saturday, but the rain chances keep increasing..... Guess we will see what it says a couple of days ahead. I don't care if it rains a little bit, just don't want to be there on a total rain out day....
