The Q&A might be fun just to see how many people who swore never to patronize the park again show up just to hurl obscenities at DK.

I swear one of these years I'll actually make it....but it probably won't be this one.

Re: Cedar Point announces CoasterMania! '08 details

I have to ask. Why is Jr. Gemini part of the ERT?

All the kids are going to be rejected from the line when a whole bunch of enthusiast who have had one to many donuts and hot dogs during their lives can get their so called "credit". I'm I the only one who sees it this way?

ERT is before the park opens and after the park closes. So, no one is going to be displaced from any lines.

Re: Cedar Point announces CoasterMania! '08 details

You join a coaster club. It is completely irrelevant to the fact that you have a season pass or not. Coasterbuzz, PointBuzz's sister site, has the CoasterBuzz Club, and I think is a good option if you're looking for a club to join.

Re: Cedar Point announces CoasterMania! '08 details

If you have a season pass and a club membership, then the event is free. Or at least that's how it's been in the past.

Re: Cedar Point announces CoasterMania! '08 details

I can see it now. Magnum goes down just before evening ERT, Wicked Twister's crew is walking off the platform heading home and the phone rings. Wicked Twister has to stay open for evening ERT. Oh wait, that was '07! :P
It was an interesting night, though. Not gonna lie, I actually kind of enjoyed it.

Yea, that was fun.

Except for the one person who had worked an O-C including both ERTs.

Re: Cedar Point announces CoasterMania! '08 details

I did that, too! It was actually kinda fun. One thing I missed being in leadership was the opportunity to learn and work different rides.

Morning: MF
Demon Drop O-C
Night: Magnum...though it was still only running 2 trains at that point, not the "real" experience, haha.

It was probably Mark (Small). He suggested it to Tyler at Dragster's ert last year.

At least I think it was Jr.Gemini........


In any case, I'm looking forward to this years CoasterMania. I enjoyed last years VERY much (being my first), and I'm overjoyed Dragsters on the roster again.

The CoasterBuzz Club is completely separate from PointBuzz.

Re: Cedar Point announces CoasterMania! '08 details

I joined Coasterbuzz last year with intentions of going to Coastermania but the plans fell through. Hopefully this year works out better.


We'll miss you MrScott

Re: Cedar Point announces CoasterMania! '08 details

Sounds awesome. Too bad I can't go 'til next year.

Why'd they have to do this on the last day of finals?

Re: Cedar Point announces CoasterMania! '08 details

I finally joined both PB & CB last year, in time for BooBuzz. Maverick ERT alone made it worthwhile. Throw in the ad-free experience, and its a 'no-brainer'.
