Go with morning. Although late afternoon thunderstorms are not as common in October as during the summer months, we can stlll get quite a bit of cloud cover moving in as the day progresses. Of course this varies day to day, but as a general rule, morning is the way to go.

Book your tickets in advance....or you might not get seat.

We went in July ....in the morning... Clouds float by....it's something else.

Heard that it's even better in cooler temperatures.

Hope for a day when it's not raining.

Don't really think the time of day will matter.

Or call the ticket office and ASK them.
