BeastBuzz info

Tuesday, June 3, 2003 6:03 PM
My wife and I are attending our first CoasterBuzz event this Saturday at BeastBuzz, but I had a few questions. When and where should we arrive, and what do we do once we get there? We have already registered. Thanks for your help, and I look forward to meeting those who are going.

Take care and God bless!

As indicated on the registration form, you need to pickup your tickets at group sales before 1pm.

This is probably a good place to mention also that we'll do on-site registration, cash only. Cost is $25 if you have a Paramount pass, $45 if you don't. No checks or credit cards, please.

ERT lineup includes The Beast (duh), Delirium, Scooby's castle and Flight of Fear. Looks like we'll have a nice sized crowd again, but not too many people. I look forward to seeing you there!

Jeff, I am curious as to when the ERT for the 4 rides you mentioned will be taking place? Will it be after the park closes like last year's ERT on the Beast? Thanks in advance.

I'm also assuming (since I haven't received an answer to the two emails I sent), that it doesn't matter if I bring someone different than originally planned. Sadly, the orriginal two people cannot make it as his wife is in ICU at the moment. But another friend has expressed an interest in coming. I assume that since I pre-registered all three of us, that I can still use one of those registrations for the the alternate?

Who'd you send e-mail to? If it was me, it must not be the right address (or you're getting caught by my spam filter ;)).

Yes, the ERT will be when the park closes, probably in the order the rides are freed of GP guests.

Provided you placed the order, yes, you can give the tickets to someone else, but if you ordered for a club member and they are not, you need to pay the difference. Not a big deal.

I used the link on this site, Jeff: webmaster@coasterbuzz.com with Beastbuzz in the subject. It's likely it got caught in a spam filter.

Cool...both of the other tickets were for non-club members at the $44 price. Only have one person coming with me now instead of the two, and she's more likely to last longer than my husband so I'll spend less time riding alone like I did at Buzzcon last year.

That address isn't monitored, but it does bounce back a message saying where to contact me for real (unless of course that got filtered at your end).

So will it be stickers or lanyards?

I didn't make buttons this year, so you don't need to expect a fat bag of 1" buttons this year Jeff. :)

I think lanyards. Going to Office Max tonight I think to figure something out. You'll probably have to write-in your name yourself below the logo, because I'm not motivated enough to print stuff this time!

I know the park opens at 10:00, and closes at 11:00, but what time should I arrive? 9:00? Earlier? later? Also, how long will the ERT go after 11? I'm sorry to bother everyone, it's just that I need to know some of these things to assist in my planning. Thanks!

Take care and God bless!

You can get there before 10, but if you do you'll be standing around a lot. I don't even plan to get out of bed until 9. :)

The ERT will go as long as it takes. Basically, the group will be meeting a little before closing time at the floral clock by the tower, and they'll direct us to which ever ride is "ready" at that time (the one sans GP guests).

I actually prefer this method of ERT because you get to bang out several rides in an hour that during the normal day might have taken you half the day. Plus you're with a bunch of other coaster idiots.

I can't wait for Flight of Fear. Best ERT ever.

Suprisingly, I am looking forward to the FoF ERT as well. Ever since the restraint change, FoF has been one of my favorite coasters.

I went to PKI the first year FoF opened, early in the season, when it was still having sporadic downtime. I waited in line almost 6 hours to ride (my longest coaster wait to date). The ERT will certainly be 180 degree difference from that. :)

PKI is the first place I've ever seen do this "sampler platter" style of ERT where a reasonably small group is escorted from ride to ride during the ride session. This is great from the operations standpoint in the sense that they can get the ERT started close to on time on a ride that's clear of GP. The tradeoff for this style is number of laps for number of attractions.

Laps are limited, yes...but last year we got two rides on TR:TR, I got 3 or 4 on FOF, and three on the Beast. I'm really looking forward to this weekend!! Especially getting rides on Delirium and Scooby's Haunted Castle.

I expect I'll be taking lots of pictures during the day since I didn't have my little digital camera last year.

I actually prefer it when the event happens to fall on a busy day. I mean, if you compare to CoasterMania, you can basically get a handful of laps on two rides (if you're lucky). Here we knock out a couple on four different rides in a relatively short period of time. I'm all for that!

I'm wondering if we'll get any little bonuses this year. Being PKI, I wouldn't be surprised! Last year's decorated lunch (real tablecloths!) and the posters were way cool.

I was thinking about that too, Jeff. You just never know when Siebert's involved. :) They've got the perfect chance to do something with that "statue" being constructed behind the Tower.

I realize many are at Coastermania right now. I should have asked this a day or two ago.
The person that had been planning for awhile now to go w/ me to BB had to back out a couple days ago. Should I try to get someone else to go that isn't a RC enthusiast, but would probably ride all of the rides w/ me, or go alone and try to hook up with some of you for the day? What are the chances of this?

I think it's probably a 4.5 hour drive (292mi) from here (Nashville suburb) and I'll be leaving early (ouch) tomorrow morning, so I'll be there about opening time or a not too long after. Being a time zone behind doesn't help. I wish now I'd gotten a hotel for tonight too.

I wish I had an answer for you. I'm bringing someone that likes coasters, but isn't an enthusiast. However, I'm hoping to meet up with some people and show my girlfriend that there are some people as "weird/obsessed/interested" as me.

If I were to guess, I would bring someone with you if you were able to. That way the drive would be less boring, and you would always have someone with you if you did get split up from a group.

Well my girlfriend doesn't want to go (she and the kids did go to CoasterBuzzCon w/ me though). And the person I was gonna ask, the only other person I can think of who halfway likes coasters and doesn't have a wife that won't let him go, can't go. So it's just me.
