Bump. The countdown is on. Just checked the weather and despite the 80 degrees of last weekend, Friday's high is only 55 degrees. Hopefully the wind stays minimal so I can get some Raptor rides.

Perfect riding weather!
Not only will we get Raptor rides, I bet they'll be trimless!

Yeah my only worry is that the current predicted high is 55 and the low is 46, that's not much difference. My concern is that might mean wind blowing in a new front or something.

I should probably ask Walt on pointbuzz. He knows about that stuff. Or maybe he is reading this thread? ;)

Forecasting wind creates more problems for forecasters than weather. At this point, near shore marine forecast goes out to Weds night and shows winds increasing Weds night. Looks like a front will be passing through that will produce chance for rain that night which you would expect to also create higher winds. I expect that the weather forecast will change as the week progresses and wind forecasts will change as well.

Am I correct that we need to purchase BooBuzz tickets even if we aren't planning on attending the meal at the Convention Center?

i.e. If we are just taking the tour of the haunted house and/or participating in the ERT, we still need tickets, right?

TIA.

what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard.
Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it.
I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

Yes, you need to buy a ticket in order to get in early for the ERT and tour as well as the meal. Be sure to bring your membership card to show at the ticket window.

In the past, the meal has been typical buffet catering. I seem to remember fried chicken for at least one of the years, but my memory is unclear. Something like mashed potatoes, green beans, mac'n cheese, rolls, etc. is the type of food to expect. Unless something is really different this year...

Sounds like Chuck Wagon (or Upchuck, depending on your tastes).

There have also been hot dogs and chocolate chip cookies. I suggest skipping the meal.

Interesting. This wasn't the case last year.

Don't take my word as "official". I'm confused how they let you in early without a ticket?

The BooBuzz description says the meal is "The Classic" option

Via cedar point group sales...

The Classic
$12.25/person
Includes Hamburgers, Broiled Hot Dogs, American Cheese, Lettuce, Tomato, Onion &
Relish, Potato Salad, Baked Beans, Sandwich Rolls, Cookies
& Assorted Pepsi Cola Beverages

The reason why you HAVE to buy these tickets is likely cause there's a 25 person minimum for group sale rates on tickets/food, so in the interest of the whole (say, especially those traveling further), having a meal available at the expense of those skipping out on it makes the most sense

I just hope some of the sandwiches are vegetarian

There was a unique entry line for BooBuzz, and a park official simply walked along the line and checked for CB Club cards. I know we didn't need a ticket because I went to purchase one, and the person mentioned that if I wasn't eating dinner, I did not need a ticket.

Of course, I'm a season pass holder, so not sure exactly how things work if you're not.

I would thing The park could provided a vegetarian option on an as needed basis. That's what GOCC is being provided for our Christmas party at Castaway Bay.

Any idea yet on which haunted house we will tour? Not that it matters, just curious.

If it's the insane asylum, look for me. I'll be out front protesting on the 7-9 shift.
