Cedar Point today announced the details for this year's CoasterMania, to be held Friday June 7. Cedar Fair CEO Dick Kinzel and park general manager Dan Keller will be the guest speakers in the ballroom at noon.
Exclusive ride time will be on Raptor, Blue Streak and Mantis from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. Lunch will be 2:00 to 3:30 p.m. Evening ERT will be on Magnum from 10:30 to 12:30, and on Millennium Force and Wicked Twister from 11 to 1 a.m.
CoasterMania is open to all members of recognized coaster clubs, including the CoasterBuzz Club. Ticket prices will be announced for non-season pass holders.
intereting. ----------------- Out of the coasters i've ridden here is wat i rank them overall:(ive been to canobie lake and SFNE) 1. S:RoS 2. Yankee Cannonball 3. Riverside Cyclone 4. Canobie Corkscrew 5. Thunderbolt 6. Galaxy 7. Mind Eraser 8. Dragon coaster 9. poison ivy's tangled
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? ----------------- 8Years working with Cedar Fair and Valleyfair!

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! :)

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?
