One thing I remember was that they had more detailed info on the 2006 Coaster Con in Orlando. They now have the information on the ACE site. http://www.aceonline.org/CoasterConXXIX/
I liked that the seating was at tables, as opposed to just rows of chairs like they did at NoCaoster.
The food was good. I especialy liked the chicken. It was served family style and only 5 of the 8 seats at our table were occupied so we had MORE than enough food. :)
I'll sort through my stuff later tonight to see if it'll jog my memory any more as to who spoke. I still have to download the picturs off of my camera. That will most certainly help my memory. Since I drove 7 hours there and 7 hours back, I am just now catching up on my sleep. The fact that the super bowl was on sunday didn't help :) *** Edited 2/7/2006 9:02:33 PM UTC by Jason Hammond***
-PKD's FoF won't be open this year at all. Beyond this year is questionable. PKI's FoF WILL be open. The launch coaster is also now called, Italian Job: Turbo Coaster.
-GCII unveiled Kentucky Rumbler's train front. Looks pretty sharp. Coasterpunk and I believe Chris Gray(correct me if I'm wrong please) were also on hand to show some pics of the completed KR and Powerpark woodie. BTW, KR is gonna be wicked insane!
-Tom Rebbie wasn't there in person but sent in a 10+ minute video of him touring the PTC factory. By far the highlight of the vid was him sitting in the front car of The Voyage train speaking high praises of the soon to be opened coaster.
-SFGAdv. again said with 50% certainity that Batman AND Robin will both run this year. At least Robin will. El Toro won't be open on opening day but more like a Memorial Day opening. The park is also introducing tons of new shows.
-DP - Wave Pool
-GL - Wave Pool and cabanas. Side Note:
-WoF, Chris Ozemick, the formal Marketing manager of DP, flew in to present his exciting new looper Hydrrrrr... The Patriot. :o)
-Paula came to talk about Holiday World and was definitely one of the highlights of the day. She also talked a little about Holiwood Nights and of course encourage us to attend.
-PKI - Their Disko coaster will feature a skateboard instead of the disc.
-PGA - Their Disko coaster is actually quite interesting. The guests waiting next to go on will determine how wet riders who are currently on the ride will get. The more noise they make, the wetter the riders get. Sounds like a lot of fun.
-And finally, Paul Rueben was also on hand to talk about Vekoma's latest and greatest attractions. Yippy.
Some other stuff happened but I forgot what it was exactly. Feel free to add-on.
Other than that most of the announcements were covered either in this thread or through news that we heard, like the designated smoking areas at SF and that reentry is still allowed for This season.
Just an FYI, with Eastcoaster someone usually mentions something about all the parks for CF. This year Heather presented Dorney, Knotts, MIA, and VF. Lexi Robinson, Public Relations Manager for GL, comes to present for CP and GL (by the way she's nuts!!...MRS SEVEN). It just happened that this year Chris came for WOF. It all has to do with who is invited by the main guys who organize the event.
Nice Seinfeld reference, huh? :)
Nuts doesn't even begin to explain Lexi. What's interesting is when I talked to her at CoasterEXT last year and she was all calm and laid back then at EC... Wow! That's suprising! ;)
But I'll never forget the fun of Tomb Raider: The Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiide!
