Not a bad line-up, but Gemini would have been a good choice too.

Imagine all those coaster nuts hand-slapping

Can't wait to go!!!
Millennium Force......It has its ups and downs.

ERT on Gemini!?  That wouldn't make sense considering the capacity of that ride already.

No rides on Vertigo?

11:-- - 1:00 AM eh? SOUNDS FUN!!

I might have to make an extra effort to get down there this year....

Gemini has 4 trains that is the highest capacity ride at Cedar Point.(I think, dont quote me on that)  It is definately a high capacity ride though.

Yeah, im with Jephry. How come no rides on Vertigo? When people find out, i bet they will snap ;)

i am so there.

Gemini has six trains most of the season.

The reason they have so many rides open is because the crowd this event draws is huge. They need as many rides open as possible to spread the peeps out.

Looks like I'll be planning my Kings Island and Cedar Point trip the first week of June. Sounds like fun caint wait! One other question what time do we have to get there? A error perhaps ERT on Millennium Force & Wicked Twister 11:--till 1am meaning 11:00pm till 1:00am?

The price -according to the brochure handed out at NCC2K2 will be a whopping $30  ;) 

I will try to get a scan of it up on a website later today.

I think they should fix Vertigo before they announce any CoasterMania rides on it.

Hell Yeah!!! That sounds great, but I would have prefered have WT in the morning and Mantis at night, They could control the flow of peeps easier that way.

The night ERT ought to be interesting...I'll have to plan that out with my buds. Now...driving home at 1a.m. with a 3 hour drive should be really interesting...I think 2 cases of Mt. Dew will be in order to make sure we don't pass out on the way home! :)

Mayday - Memorial Day Weekend - Nonpoint, Nickelback, Oleander, Staind
Ozzfest - June 8 - Drowning Pool, Papa Roach, Linkin Park, Disturbed, Black Sabbath
Awake Tour- June 15 - Darwin's Waiting Room, Puddle of Mudd, Deftones, Godsmack

I'm surprised they didnt put wicked twister in the morning like they did with MF its first year.  I guess thats a smarter move though.  If this is anything like last year, its gonna be awsome.

Looks like I better get some friends together and book a cabin at Lighthouse Point, there is no way I'm driving home that late. LoL.  That ERT sounds great, I can't wait!

Something mentioned at No Coaster that should be mentioned here.  Only one guest per club member is allowed this year.

Millennium Force and Wicked Twister are so far apart from each other. I've never been to an event with an ERT. How many rides would I be able to get in during that 2 hours? Will there be enough time to get a couple rides on each?
