Noel Aube and Michael Barillaro rode Wildcat at Lake Compounce 2002 times, a new record for that ride. The two men will share the prize of $2,000 and a speedboat for the contest they started in June. Aube held the previous record at 2001 laps.

I was surprised to see that it made our evening news in my area. (Elmira, NY) Nice to see something good about coasters on the news.

I would like to marathon any coaster, but it would have to be smooth to do it 2002 times.

I rode Wildcat with the marathoners when they were up to 700 or so trips. It was pretty cool to see them, and they looked like they were having fun. I'm glad to see they made it.

Anyone who can ride a coaster 2002 times desereves some credit. Heck, after I rode Millennium Force 5 times in 10 minutes I needed a break...lol
Millennium Force - Any other questions?
