I'm not sure if this is PC or not, but I wanted to talk about Coastermania. I've never gone and I have just been invited to go with my family as their guest. I am excited. I was wondering, what kind of turn-out does it have, is two hours for each ride enough ERT considering the turnout, and what kinds of experiences other people have had with it. No matter what, I'm going, but am interested in any comments.

Do you have to be a member of an organization to attend this event? I would really like to go but currently I am not a member of anything.

Members of organizations (like ACE or NAPHA) are allowed to buy tickets for non-member friends or family. I think you can buy up to four tickets.

You have to be a member of any coaster club. You must show an official membership card when you register. Coaster Club member can purchase up to 3 tickets for non-member friends/family.

It is on June 1, and it is a blast! I went last year and had the best day of my life. Yes, there certainly is ERT. This year, morning ERT is for Raptor, Mantis, Blue Streak. Night ERT is for Magnum and MF.
Someone in your party of up to 4 must be a member of a recognized coaster club and present your member card at the park.
You get some cool buttons for the ERT. If you have any thought about going, I encourage you to go. It's really cool.
Last year, I was in the park for 19 hours and I rode MF, Mantis, Raptor, and Magnum all 4 times.

Yeah, if you're not a club member, just latch on to one of the members here. There are plenty of ACE and ECC members among us!

The park is open for the public but coaster clubs have reservations on rides, before the park opens, and after the park closes, right? Should be a killer time. I just got a membership to a club and plan on going to this. See ya'll there. Wear your shirts!

I'd like to wear a coasterbuzz t-shirt. When are they going to be sold?
