During the "NEO ACE Winter Celebration XV" at the Geauga Lake hotel, the events were mentioned.
The reason it came up at all was that there is also to be a dedication to the Little Dipper at Memphis Kiddie park and someone sugested doing it on a day around those 2 events.
The Little Dipper is the, "Oldest Still Standing Steel Coaster that hasn't been relocated." I don't remember if it was just in the US or if it was in the whole world. *** Edited 1/10/2006 4:29:50 PM UTC by Jason Hammond***
Greetings ... I finally had my own question answered. CP will have Coastermania 6/2/06 (Friday) & GL will have Coaster EXT 6/3/06 (Saturday). I called the parks today to find out. The flyers with lodging and event info should be posted soon. Take advantage of the lodging at CP and be aware of the short period of time to make a reservation for this event and to cancel for this event.
So a Friday for Coastermania ?. I'm still a rookie when it comes to Coastermania last summer was my first but I've always heard it to likley take place on a weekend like a Saturday. Seems kind of odd in a way to host it on friday though it could be a wise move to avoid major crowds, but who knows?. Im patiently anticapting the info to be released. Ill take your word for now. Thanks for the update. *** Edited 1/11/2006 1:47:43 AM UTC by SFDLdan***
too busy running over little kids to get to dragster in the morning...
speaking of which, to all the people who run to dragster this year, take a look at the "husky gradient" of the line from front to back... it's quite hillarious. can tell who is in shape, and who isn't :)

Gorman - "They" aren't going in as ASO reps. It'll just be some random guy in a sweat stained coaster shirt in desperate need of a shower taking notes and trying to improve upon the "safety of the park and its visitors."
I defeinitly plan to own the run this year again, :-P so Yeah im talking the smack already if anyone thinks they can out run me,lol. I don't know why I gave it to that kid, he was slacking and begining to slow down as we reached the end of the skyride ,yet I was ranting at him telling him not to stop.
I can't wait for it this yr. I will say the wait after the run was most unberable my legs were murder. Definitly the best experience of my life. Btw some slow dude cut me off in the begining almost went gut first into a garbage can next to the carousel, haha.

Or those of us who are in shape, but think running just to get on a single ride is flat-out stupid.
At "No Coaster Con 2006" this past Saturday, we were given the flyers for "Coaster Mania 06" and "Coaster EXT 2006 The Extreme Extention" They state the following:
Coaster Mania is on June 2nd. Purchase tickets at 4:30am. Gates open at 5:30. ERT on Top Thrill Dragster, Millennium Force from 6-8:30, and Skyhawk from 6:30-8:30. Q&A from Noon-1. Lunch from 2-3:30. ERT on Magnum, Raptor, Gemini and Blue Streak from 10:30-Midnight. Cost is $30 for Regular and $9.95 for Juniors and Seniors. Season Pass Holders (including Geauga Lake season pass holders who have a 2 park pass) will get in free by presenting their season pass along with their club membership card. A standard Geauga Lake season pass will get you an admission of $28.
Coaster EXT is on June 3rd.Purchace tickets at 9am. Gates open at 10. Lunch from 2-3. Q&A at 3. ERT on Big Dipper, X-Flight, Dominator, and Villain from 10:30-Midnight. Cost is $19.95 for Regular and &9.95 for Juniors and Seniors. Any Cedar Fair Season pass (Other than a Cedar Point season pass without the 2 Park Add On) along with a Club Membership card will get in free.
well at least they mentioned the cheaper price for GL only passholders this year... i remember the fiasco we went through last year when the flyer said GL passholders will have a "yet to be determined" charge, but we got the run-around from several employees (until we finally talked to the director) and ended up paying full price.
Sweet thanks for the info. I booked a hotel for Coaster EXT this morning in Streetsboro. The Econolodge on St Rte 14 & the turnpike has room listed at $46.79. If you goto econolodge.com and select internet user rate you get the rock bottom rate.
