My 6th CoasterMania and probably one of my favorite ones yet! Not going into too many details here since some other CB'ers have pretty much hit on everything. I was disappointed that WT was out of commission but glad for everyone else that TTD was running.

Hubby Eric and I arrived at park at 5:30am.
Morning ERT - TTD. Despite some minor delays and a rollback we managed our ride at 6:45am. What a way to wake up! I decided 1 ride was plenty for me and opted to head to Raptor (gasp, I know! ;))
We managed 20 Raptor flights from 7-10am. That is the most rides I have ever gotten during any CM ERTs :)

Our 15th ride was the most important one to me since it was my 1000th Raptor flight! :) One of my favorite CP silver tags honored me by riding with me for my 1k ride. Yes, I did buy the on ride photo! :)
I got hugs from a couple of the crew members who knew as well as my CP buds through out the day who asked or had heard about it :)
Thanks to the crew for working so hard to get the trains out all morning.

The lunch was great, the mufflehead free potato salad was quite welcome, and I really liked the cotton candy myself :)

GOCC meeting was fun. I like seeing fellow GOCCers and got the chance to meet a couple new members as well.

PM ERT was awesome! Seemed WAY too crowded (and loud) in the beginning of ERT, as we rode the crowd deminished more and more. We managed 18 Magnum rides. Maggie was FLYING!!!! I have the black and blue lap bar marks on both my thighs to prove it. I ADORE Maggie. She kicks butt! :)
I also have to thank the Maggie crew for working so hard for us, and for tolerating some of the BS. I also have to mention seeing Magnum Dan at Maggie too. I had wondered what happened to him!!

We finished CoasterMania on the last MF train of the night. I had forgotten how awesome MF is at night. It was great! :)

I was sad to see CoasterMania come to an end but it was a really memorable time. I have to thank all my CP buds for all the laughs. I love you guys! Thanks to my wonderful husband for being the love of my life and for being part of my obsessions :)
And a special thank you to CP for providing such a great time for everyone! You guys rock! :)

We got to CP at 5:30am and didn't leave the park again until 11:20pm. What a day!!! :)
As with CMs in the past I find myself voiceless today. Quite the gift for my hubby! ;)

Can't wait till CoasterMania '05!!! :)

Yup, that would be me! :)
My CP buds decided to carry me through the entrance and chant "hail Raptor Jo" while they were doing it. It is more of a joke to Bryan cause every year we do something different when we go through the queue.

Needless to say, I was hysterical while they were doing it! It's one of those things I think about and just start cracking up over :)
They also did a "skit" of "dragging" Hooper with sunglasses on, past Bryan and said "this is our friend Bernie" :)

Good times! :)

LOL! That was hilarious Jo! I had no idea that was you. :-)

Where your friends the same ones chanting (or yelling) various things like "Wicked Twister is down! Dragster is down!" while riding Magnum? That could of been another gang. lol.

Yup! :)
Actually my favorite chant was "No more Intamin, we want B&M!"

Glad other people were enjoying our antics too! :)
