I wish I was invited to that! Imagine how many of those world class coasters get you get in in one day! Imagine riding MF Maverick and TTD 3 times apiece. I bet whatever company it was shelled out a ton of money.
^^LG, Labor day is Sept. 1st this year (Labor day is always the first Monday in Sept thus it can only be Sept 1-7) I think the reason most are upset is that that weekend was "Joe Cool" week last year, and its obvious that is not returning this year.
Dorney Park changes their schedule and closes for more private events long after their brochure is published each year ... perhaps the cash from a private event is worth some ticked off, brochure holding customers?
beast7369 said: Either they have a corporate buyout, or someone screwed up the online schedule, or they simply need that day to prep for Halloweekends. Why not just call and ask them....they might just tell you.
^ Do you think I'm stupid? I was the 4th person to post in this thread. I linked the event page because beast7369 was talking about the schedule and wondering if it was correct. I thought this solidified the fact that the schedule on the website was not a mistake. But thank you for your sarcastic remark. *** Edited 2/1/2008 3:02:05 AM UTC by Jason Hammond***
I would think being this early in the year, that they want to fix the rack brochure as well. Were there any complaints last year about the height restrictions on Maverick? In the Park Guide it said 48". Before they opened they changed it to 52". IIRC, It wasn't reflected in the literature until the Halloweekends Fright Guide came out.
Most buyouts are planned FAR in advance. If I had to take a guess I would say that X company had booked a buyout for Geauga Lake for this year...and that park is now closed...so Cedar Fair worked out an alternative utilizing Cedar Point.
Again, just a guess. Now the question is: If folks have reservations at the Cedar Point hotels (which is likely they did) will they let those folks in the park on that day?
