I would guess either Happy Jack's Toy Factory or Dr Demented. We did Terror Island last year and they'll probably be setting up for Beokling's Banquet inside Erie Estates.

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

I won't be there, but if they're the same wieners they serve at the Midway Market, that'd definitely be a reason to follow your advice. But send me some cookies, 'k?

Just wanted to rub it it from the line for Dr. D. Mented's...

...if you're not here you're missing it. Good times.

FYI... ERT without the meal was never the deal. I don't think that was unclear.

I'm really annoyed with the behavior of some people at this event. To the moron who pushed my wife out of the way on the Millennium Force platform, don't ever come to one of my events again. Ever. I'm getting tired of seeing adults act like children.

Indeed; from a logistics sense of making an event of this calibre it would have to be uniform across the board

The guy catering the meal at the convention centre was pretty sweet. He made a phone class and found us a veggie burger option for me and my girlfriend, brought them out to us. Really polite about it. The burger was pretty decent as well

Compared to other Boo Buzz events and Friday nights during Halloweekends at Cedar Point, how did last night's crowd compare? I had never been to either so I really didn't know what to expect.

Last night seemed pretty crowded, actually. I don't know how it compared to past events, but I waited an hour for my second Maverick lap.

At least you got to wait with some pretty cool company. ;)

We also waited for an hour for Maverick and an hour for MF at night. Though we rode Raptor 3 times in about 40 mins total wait time (each time in the front row which I had never been in before last night).

Doesn't surprise me in the least, but I have some friends that are at the point right now, and Maverick is a full queue and spilled out/down the midway toward Wave Swinger. It's a 2+ hour wait, and that's the only picture I've seen.

I guess everyone really does love Halloweekends.

They had an exceptional crowd last night for sure, but the usual short lines were easy to find (Raptor, Wicked Twister, maXair, Magnum), and the usual suspects were longer (Maverick, Dragster, MF after the ERT). But other than that, it was all pretty manageable, I thought... and worlds different from last year.

Like an order of magnitude better, at least.

Last night was amazing. Great rides and great company made for an awesome party! Thanks, Jeff, for putting it on, and thanks, Mike and Carrie, for dragging me on the Turbo Drop side of Power Tower against my wishes! ;)

No no -- she dragged us both on that one. Thankfully, my cojones were still waiting securely in the bin when we got back down to the bottom. ;)

A great time, nevertheless. :)

I'm waiting on a call back from lost & found to see if they found mine. I think they're somewhere by Corkscrew.

Great fun last night, Thanks Jeff for setting up the event, and thanks to Bryan for keeping everything running smooth.

For a Friday night it was a pretty large crowd. Saturday is going to be busier than last Saturday. We left the Park at 2:30 PM, the main lot was already full, the overflow was about 80%, and Soak City was more than half full. Traffic was backed up all the way down the causeway, and out almost to 250.

Thanks Jeff for a Great Boo Buzz!

If it wasn't for Top Thrill Trolling us through out the day specially opening back up with 10 minutes left of park operating time, (busy in line for a night ride on MF to go back to ride :( ) it would have been perfect...


Great Food + Fun Rides like always = Great time...

Looking forward for next years boo buzz! (perhaps an after hour ERT? >.>)

Were there any blue shirts/folks with ties at the ERT session? We got there late due to getting stuck in traffic. When the ERT was ending, we were looking for someone who knew which haunted house we were getting a tour of, but it seemed everyone had left already. We walked up to Park Ops and were fortunate that it was at Happy Jack's nearby. I was really worried that it was going to be at the new house and we would no chance to make it back there before the tour was already over. I was definitely missing the Fall Affair name tags and itinerary.

After we got to tour which had already started, we couldn't really hear Dan due to the noisy jack-in-the-box next door. Some GP kids walked up behind us and took the tour as well not knowing that it wasn't actually open.

This was my 3rd BooBuzz, so maybe it was just bad luck, but I felt like I couldn't find any familiar faces at the right times to know what was going on.

I feel you. Frankly the ERT felt very un-CP-like, and I was horrified to see they were running two trains with water dummies. Even more horrified when they not only unloaded one of them, but also took the time to empty them. There were a couple of ride ops not in uniform (they were not ride prides), one guy was chatting on his phone and I didn't see any supes or TL's. The fall HR challenge looks like it's having somewhat of an adverse effect on operations.

I'm still most annoyed at the behavior of some participants, and it gets worse every year, and only at the CP event. I'm trying to decide what to do about that.

Thanks Jeff. BooBuzz 2010 was my first coaster event. My guest and I both had a great time, in spite of the water dummy issue. Good food, good tour and great rides. Thanks again.
