Sounds like a good event like usual. Will probably be heading back up there for the second time. Had a great time last year.

Dick Kinzel Keynote? Asking for trouble? ;) Guess he's gonna talk about his career at Cedar Fair for his last CoasterMania.

I've tried to make the last 2-3 years and haven't made it. Maybe this is the year?

Might as well just CAMP inside the park. How cool would that be?! :)

I'm hoping that one of my vacations that I take in June doesn't end up on that week. I'm planning on taking the Train across the Ohio and Pennsylvania valley to visit yet another amusement park I've never visited before. Last year I visited Hershey Park and Dorney Park. This year I haven't decided yet. So If I can get that weekend free, I'll come to Coaster Mania. I should be able to, I have plenty of time to plan it. :)

Hell, just throw some sleeping bags on Judy and Myron and run them all night. It'd be better than riding the el in Chicago... :)

I prefer to think of myself as a 'coaster hobo'...

My author website:

About how many people show up to an event like this? How are the lines during the ERT?

TTD 120mph's avatar

Around 2000 (more or less) show up and the ert sessions are spread amoung multiple rides so you can get anywhere from 3-8 rides (or more) on one ride.

I remember the days when that number was much much lower. Back then exclusive meant exclusive:)

While they've added ERTs (I'm betting the MS ERT won't be that popular ;)), it seems they've gotten rid of the behind the scenes tours. Bummer. :(

I think that was just a "special for the year" kind of deal. Our "special deal" this year is obviously the tons of ert. :)

Since it's the 20th Anniversary and all, will there be a moment of silence for all the victims of Mean Streak?

The path you tread is narrow, and the drop is sheer and very high.

ERT on Disaster Transport?!? YES!!!!!

Sadly I'm a tiny bit serious... lol

How about DT with the lights on? That would be interesting.

Very excited for this yet again. Last year's Coaster Mania weekend was probably the best weekend I've ever had at the point, and this has a lot of potential. Who's in for a Mean Streak take-over? Dibs on not back seat :)
