Best ERT Experience

Sunday, May 20, 2001 6:44 PM
What was (if you have gotten the chance) the best ERT (exclusive ride time) session you ever had. I'd say Raging Bull back in August. We only got an hour, but we got 20+ rides.

Hard to say, I've only been to two events one w/ ert on S:ROS @ SFA w/ the coaster zombies and the other being this years SRM. I definitely got more rides in at the CZ ert, but how can you overlook Raven and The (almighty) Legend? I guess I liked them both equally. (both included pitch black rides...)

My best and only ERT is when I got to go to IOA before it actually opened in April of 1999. They only let like 1,000 people in which meant I got alot of Hulk and Dueling Dragon rides in in about 1 hour. The thing is the rides kept breaking down because they hadn't been fully tested

The CZ Invasion at SFA last year. Over 1.5 hours on Superman without stop, at night, on an incredibly clear night, with Hostly as my ride partner, along with a few other CB'ers. Going to be hard to top that one aver. MONKEY, MONKEY, MONKEY, MONKEY!:)

Last year's ACE event at Funtown in Saco, ME. A morning and evening ERT on Excalibur along with short lines during the day. 70 rides on Excalibur in one day. Ride operators were great and kept sneaking me into empty seats.

2nd best would be the 3+ hours of ERT on Shivering Timbers at TimbersFest 2000. (20 rides)

3rd best on S:ROS SFAmerica with CoasterZombies. (24 rides in 2 hours, mostly in the dark)

Thanks to the parks, CCI, ACE, other clubs and enthusiasts that make it all possible.

Without a doubt, the best ERT I have ever had was at this year's SRM. The lines may have been a bit long, but it was worth it for those insane rides! You know a ride is running FAST when a train overshoots the brakes as much as they were after it rained. And there is just something special about riding Legend at 1:30 in the morning.

Two words:


Ok, this wasn't official ERT, but with no lines for Magnum, Power Tower, Raptor, Mantis, and walk ons for MF... for 6 hours. It qualifies.
