Get a job in the media.

That's Why They're Called Media Days. (TM)

Hahah...you stole my thought, Den.

The only other way is to have the right "contacts"...and those aren't created overnight (or a couple of months)

Hmmm.... I'm not in the media and got invited to Indiana Beach's media day for Locosumo. You just have to be "in". It does help to have good friends that work in the park too.

If you send me $200, I guarantee you I will get you invited to Cedar Point's Media Day this year.

That's $200, payable to:

A-List, 2003 Perks Dr., Simi Valley, Ca. 93065.

Checks or Money Orders OK, cash preferred.

I think this is a good time also to explain that media days often are *not* ERT sessions. Many times there are significant (i.e. 30-minute) waits between rides due to switching camera equipment and TV personalities on the ride. Many times "enthusiasts" who are invited are limited on the seats they can pick (i.e., only on-camera folks are allowed in the front and/or back seats).

And btw, any enthusiasts who are invited are going to be the ones the park knows it can count on for enthusiastic, positive reviews of the new ride. Anyone who goes to a media day and badmouths any aspect of the park or new ride (or wears a shirt for an opposing park) is probably going to be asked to leave.

Jeff - that wouldn't happen to you if you's just succumb and accept membership into the CPG. I think we have room for a 6th member

PS - I've dropped the oral exam previously required for membership....
