Did anyone ever see anyone famous at parks riding the coasters?
At Hershey park this year I saw Mick Foley (Mankind) riding the Wild Mouse with his two daughters. Then the next day I saw him again near the Coal Cracker.

Warren Sapp (star of the Tampa Bay Bucs) was at BGT when I was there. I didn't see him though. I was dissapointed because I think he is a good football player and I wanted an autograph.

Well with the WWF and Viacom signing an agreement together you will probably see more and more wrestlers at Paramount parks.

Not a coaster, but back when I was working at Disney (opening the Body Wars simulator ride) a bunch of us got to ride with Elizabeth Shue. She's the co-star in the storyline with Tim Matheson. Being at Disney I've also seen Mark Hamill (Body Wars), rode with Gilbert Godfried (Universe of Energy-had to let him out midway through), Louis Gossett Jr. (same), Carrie Fisher (Star Wars Weekends-MGM), Howie Mandell (MGM), and Michael Jackson (more times than I can count).
Remember, no matter where you go...there you are.

I saw the Rock @ SFGA walking towards Medusa. Apparently his wife has family that lives near the park.

Several years ago, we were at Disney MGM Studios at the same time Bette Midler was shooting for a brief film for an attraction. We also attended an impromptu forum with her, where she signed an autograph for me :).

I've dispatched Medusa trains (SFGAd) containing Whoopie Goldberg and The Rock. I've also dispatched a Batman: The Ride train containing Julia Roberts and her entourage.

I also saw Mick Foley (Mankind) from the WWF at Magic Mountain in line for Golaith with his son, daughter and wife. I yelled to get his attention, but he didn't hear me. :( Too bad.
