10 couples getting married on BORG at Carowinds

Tuesday, July 5, 2005 6:18 PM
On July 14th, at 10am, 10 couples will exchange vows in full wedding attire on the BORG ASSIMILATOR Flying coaster at Paramount's Carowinds. Pastor Mark Harris, a member of American Coaster Enthusiasts (ACE), will preside over the coaster wedding and a special wedding guest of the BORG kind will also be on hand.

The winners are sponsored by WIBT, the New 96.1 The Beat "Get Married on a Roller Coaster" contest.

I'm never one to advocate such posts as what I'm about to do here, but this news has left me no choice. So without further ado, I give you my post.

Since this is a solemn occasion, I won't make a poor-taste joke like:

"You will be assimilated".

But you will be... ;)

These folks have just DEFINED 'emgee'. Anyone on this site who has previously claimed to be an emgee can no longer justify that status. Sorry.

Unless you're one of the 10 couples getting married at 10am on July 14th on BORG Assimilator.

I'm not sure which is geekier, getting married on a rollercoaster or having a Borg in attendance

LoL, thats always been my dream, to get married on a roller coaster. I've always wanted to get married on Raging Bull. I wonder how much you have to pay to get it done without the contest. More then a normal wedding? Hmmm.... :P

Geek, party of 20...your table is ready.

Mooshy, I thought you were looking to fly to meet nasai in Chicago, not Charolette. I'm mad I'm not invited!;)

Now this is bad. Star Trek Coaster Geeks having a Star Trek themed wedding on a Roller Coaster, with BORG in attendance.

And here I thought I was scarred after seeing an actual Star Trek wedding at Star Trek: The Exp. I'm a Trekkie and a coaster geek, but this just scares even me...

Getting married in general scares me Tekno. :)

60% divorce rate in this country is enough for me to avoid it unless it's for certain.

But how can you know for 100% sure anything is certain? Who marries when they don't think its for certain?
Wednesday, July 6, 2005 1:46 AM
I don't know Moosh. Maybe that is why I never said yes. Don't want to be a statistic. :)

Seriously though, if I feel it's right, I would go for it.

As far as your question as to who would marry if they thought is wasn't for certain, you would be surprised. I have friends that have gone through it and thought it wasn't right from the get-go but didn't back out. *** Edited 7/6/2005 5:48:12 AM UTC by Chitown***

I got married in teh traditional way, but I proposed to my wife on the Big Wheel at Greatadventure. I got down on one knee, and all Julie could say was "STOP ROCKING THE CAR!"

umm, 60% do.

60% discover its not for certain. Most everyone assumes it will be while walking down the isle. Sure, there will always be exceptions.

LOL. People on here calling other people geeks....sheesh!;)

Me, I'm a geek and proud of it.

I was actually wondering, how much do you think it would cost to get married on Millenium Force? I was thinking .. a lot, but a ballpark estimate from someone who's been around coasters for longer than me would be nice.

I want to walk down the isle, but I think I might have to settle for walking down the aisle.

<= who got engaged two weeks ago

And there's no way we're doing a coaster wedding or a coaster honeymoon. There're better rides on a honeymoon that you don't have to wait in line for.

LOL...that's what I get for typing that so early in the AM ;)

Right on, Andy, congrats! I agree, we wanted nothing to do with coasters for our wedding and honeymoon. After the mega-stress of months of wedding planning and house-hunting, lying on a beach in the Carribbean was much more desirable. :)

So, Vater, what you're saying is first you'll walk down the aisle, then you'll walk down the isle...see, Moosh wasn't that far off. ;) ;)
