I have gone to both of the PKI events that CoasterBuzz has held. I can tell you that they have been the BEST events I have ever been too. Well, I'll say that they are tied with SRM.
Last year was the best though, with the "Behind The Scenes" tour. Jeff S. is truly one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet. It always felt like he went out of his way to make our group feel like we were something special. I know they treat all of their guests like this, but it was just nice to actually feel good about being an enthusiast.

Jeff - does everyone coming have to be a CBuzz member? My Dad became the semi-enthusiast that he is (and I have him to thank for my habit) because of the Beast the way it operated in its opening years. If you guys truely have runs with no trims on, him and his best friend in Indy would probably crap their pants to have the chance to do that again. Should I encourage them to slide $20 your way so as to participate or can I bring guests?

Jeff, you are my hero. This is the day after coastercon ends! I'll be there!!! Do you think if I signed up for a Cbuzz membership in about a week, I would be all set by June? I do want to become a member, now more than ever. What a week that will be! Cedar point, six flags WOA, Memphis kiddie park, and then a cbuzz day at PKI!!! You are my hero jeff!

No chance of that. ERT for a ride that holds a dozen or so people per cycle in a group of 70 to 100 people (or maybe even more this year) is not very "exclusive," you know?
Not positive of the ride line-up this year, but last year we did two laps on the Scooby shooter, three laps on Flight of Fear, three on Delirium and three on The Beast in a little over an hour. That, my friends, is good ERT.
There is a very good chance I will be attending my first ever Coasterbuzz event with this future event. It sounds like a lot of fun and would be the perfect way to end the week of riding from the Coaster Con.
As for Flying Eagles ERT, I don't think the park would do it but two years ago LeSourdsville Lake did that for us on their model. There were 90 people at that event but it was clear there wasn't a lot of people interested in taking advantage of it as there were only around 20 people flying during ERT.
I have a hunch that pretty much everone at this Coasterbuzz event know how much fun those rides can be.
