I got this in my newsletter from Geauga Lake. They are holding Survivor 13 auditions at the park. Judging from what it says it looks like if you audition the whold day at the park is FREE! Here's what the newsletter says:

"Survivor 13" Auditions July 21!

Think riding on a roller coaster at Geauga Lake & Wildwater Kingdom is extreme? Not compared to the extreme measures people will go to when auditioning for "Survivor." In the past, those auditioning have been known to climb trees, paint their bodies, dance like monkeys, sing songs and even bite the heads off of fish!

Geauga Lake & Wildwater Kingdom and WOIO-Cleveland's CBS-19 are giving Clevelanders the opportunity to be one of the stars of "Survivor", the top-rated reality show on CBS for five years, while enjoying a FREE day at the park.

Geauga Lake & Wildwater Kingdom will host this casting call for the thirteenth installment of the "Survivor" series on Thurs., July 21 from noon until 7 p.m. The casting call will take place at the Water Ski Stadium located within Wildwater Kingdom.

WOIO will tape the auditions and send them to CBS headquarters to be judged by "Survivor" producers and casting experts. Applicants have about two minutes to impress the judges. Also participating in the casting call are Q104's Jen Toohey, who will be broadcasting live all day, and Karen, the Cleveland lawyer who was on "Survivor Palau."

Contestants are judged based on their interesting backgrounds, personalities and lifestyles. All applicants must be at least 21 years old, in excellent physical and mental health and willing to submit to a background check.

Those auditioning must bring their completed application, a passport-sized photo and a copy of their driver's license. Applicants must have, or be in the process of applying for, a valid U.S. passport. Once contestants have auditioned, they will receive a full rebate for their purchased ticket to Geauga Lake & Wildwater Kingdom (worth $24.95).

Well, that's one way to fill the park.
Maybe the audition is surviving the parking headaches that are bound to happen w/an overflow of peeps.

Actually, nobody gets free admission.

If they're chosen for a two-minute audition, they'll get a rebate. Otherwise, they're free to enjoy their day.

Of course, the real payoff is the cross-marketing on Q104, where the TV and radio station will drop the park's name every 30 seconds for weeks before the event.

I don't think you need to be chosen, I think it's the first 300 people. Cause they say something about if you have a number less than 300 you get your admission refunded. But you must first pay to get in. My guess is that you would need to be there much earlier than noon.

It seems to me like everyone auditioning will recieve the rebate.
