The WGN anchor did an amazing job, CP needs to send kudos to this guy. He did followups on his personal account as well as the studio coverage. He was knowledgable and took questions from people on facebook live.


Sandusky Fan, Starting to enjoy the city more than the park.

Best video was the Sandusky Register guy who was scared to death while Alan Schilke was riding behind him. Alan is having a great time and losing his hat which he finally removed.

I love media coverage of CP rides. It gives me time to view the excitement of the ride and hype me up all while making cringe-worthy false statements. The information they report to their viewers is a lot of times incorrect. For example, one media coverage I saw, the news reporter back at the station claimed he did research on SV and the first words out of his mouth were "Steel Vengeance is the first steel on wood roller coaster in the world"....ummm I don't think he did his research after all.

Considering it’s not even the first one at the park, I’m gonna say that’s correct, haha

Sounds like the reporter didn't even carefully read the fact sheet CP gave everyone much less doing any research on his own.


I'd rather be in my boat with a drink on the rocks,

I gave an interview to a reporter from the Tiffin paper, but I guess she didn’t use any of it.

I love the guy from Fox2Detroit. He's surprised that you need both a seatbelt and a lapbar, and he asked, "What kind of ride is this!?"

Like, has he ever ridden a coaster before?
