Winter Chill Out

First: Western Cruiser - I had a very similar experience. Got a ticket in my cart, entered my payment info, when I got to the screen to review my order, the tickets disappeared.

Second: It looks like the ticketing issue even made the local (Toledo) news:

Remember when PointBuzz started the Winter Chill Out and we all just kinda showed up in the Soak City parking lot? Someone let me know when that event is and I'll be there.

You didn't just show up... we used Eventbrite and took your money that way, and met at the Breakers East conference space.

I have been trying to figure out when the first Winter Chill Out was? Whether or not it was one organized by this group or by Cedar Point, I was just curious to know when this was.

As Jeff mentioned....I do remember meeting in the Breakers Conf room. This will be my 10th chill out. The first couple we attended were limited to 100 tickets. Remember it only being $15. I still have 2 of the t-shirts we received.

It certainly has grown in numbers and popularity. I have met and chatted with many Point fans,

One of the most original things we saw on a tour was walking inside the Disaster Transport building. There was an awesome spiral staircase inside...and now it's all gone.

Yeah I was exaggerating a bit. Just thinking of when times were simpler and not everything was a "major operation" by the park.

If I recall correctly, the 2011-2012 off-season had 2 quasi-Winter Chill Out events. One was in December and the other in February. Bryan Edwards served as the tour guide for both. Before that I think any winter visits were "special invite only". After the December event, we had pizza at Chet and Matt's.

Edit: YouTube videos exist of both of these because: the Internet.

I was trying to remember which year I went and I just saw myself under Wicked Twister in the February 2012 video so that's that. I thought I remembered it being a PointBuzz event. It was a good time. Very cool to see inside the DT building. And I believe John Hildebrant gave a good presentation in the Breakers conference room. I'd like to get to another winter event soon. Maybe next year.

We'll miss you MrScott and Pete

Not surprised about the vents/valves because you breathe out the valves and if you have the rona it comes out the valves... Never was a fan of those or the thin gaiters.. it makes the large particulates smaller and airborne longer.
