** High Priority **

Hello everyone, and congratulations! Thank you for making a significant
contribution to Children's Miracle Network in an effort to be the first to
conquer Kingda Ka at our Media Preview event!

The Public Relations department handles publicity efforts for Six Flags Great
Adventure. We'll be keeping in touch with you over the next few weeks as we
wrap final testing for Kingda Ka and plan our media preview day, which is also
YOUR time to ride Kingda Ka! At this time, we are planning for the second week
of May to unveil Kingda Ka to the media (television, newspapers, radio and
internet press), and then, to the public. While I can't confirm a date for you
at this time, I wanted to let you know the time frame we're working with. Media
week events are still evolving, and we may have additional opportunities for you
to ride and be on TV. We'll keep you posted!

If you're interested in doing interviews with the press, let us know! If you're
not interested, let us know that also! When you have a few minutes, please tell
us a little about yourself and why you wanted to be part of this Kingda Ka
event. Knowing this will help us share your story with the media.

You're in good company...interest in Kingda Ka stretches the globe! You may
find it interesting to know that CNN, New York Times, New York Post, New York
Daily News, XM Satellite Radio, National Geographic Channel, German TV, Japan TV
and many others have confirmed to join us on media day. Kingda Ka has already
been featured in the Wall St. Journal, New York Times, Newsweek, FHM, Stuff,
Popular Science, The Times of London, and was voted America's best coaster in
Reader's Digest this month!

No doubt this will be a very exciting time for all of us here at Six Flags, and
we're thrilled you'll be joining us for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!

Best regards,
Six Flags Great Adventure Public Relations Team

No worse than when Paul Ruben called TTD best coaster ever before it had opened...

Except that Paul Ruben is a media whore, and Reader's Digest resembles a legitimate news source...

I thought Paul Ruben thought Jr. Gemini was the best coaster ever made. Flipping like this, who does he think he is? John Kerry?

Paul Ruben has 500 favorite rides depending on the day or interviewer.

I'm not sure I understand how the average Reader's Digest subscriber has been on the ride, let alone voted on it or compared it to any other ride. Come to think of it, I don't know anyone under the age of 50 that reads it. Not exactly the coaster-riding crowd.

not that i am defending Jeff, but I think his point his how can it be rated #1 when no one has ridden it

My guess is it is a marketing ploy! A nice one i might add!

Jeff: There are plenty of us over 50 who ride coasters. Of course, I don't read "Reader's Digest."

I read it and I'm 34. It's not bad, although it's a very conservative magazine. My parents and my late grandparents had a subscription. It's a constructive way to pass the time while you're waiting for your 8:00am appointment that actually occurs at 9am (how do doctors get away with that?) The "That's Outrageous" columns, and some of the "people in danger/natural disaster" columns are also pretty good. And what magazine can you think of that also comes in a large-type version for the visually impaired?
