Ideas for future events

Thursday, May 6, 2004 3:19 PM
Danny and I were just discussing how we could spice up future coaster events with some organized activities for enthusiasts, similar to ACE's midway olympics. Here's a few ideas we had, please feel free to add your own:

Reality Flame Wars: Enthusiasts get a chance to see if they have what it takes to hurl insults at someone's face rather than hiding behind their relative anonymity on the forums.

Battle of the Buckled-On Bulge: As enthusiasts, we're all naturally obsessed with ranking things, so why not judge fanny packs? Extra points if you incorporate pancakes into your fanny pack decorations.

Stuff Your Face/Off: Pretty self explanatory. Who can eat the most? Better yet, who can eat the most at Michigan's Adventure then ride Little Drummer Boy with STChick and not throw up? Now *that's* a challenge!

Battle of the Buffet: The American Gladiators of food fights. Enthusiasts can hurl nasty remarks at each other about why their favorite coaster sucks or what color Magnum really is while getting the satisfaction of seeing your arch enemy on the forums get pegged in the head with a flying hot dog, or better yet, a block of fudge!

Enthusiast Jeopardy: Your classic Jeopardy game with subjects pertaining to the very essence of coaster enthusiasts' existence. Topics would include Stalking, Food Items Containing 1,000+ Calories, Foods that Come on a Stick, Gravy, Pancakes, and Why the Flyers Rule.

Some more I came up with. These aren’t nearly as good as the collaboration between Kristin and I above-

Stalk ‘N Roll Jeopardy: Volume Two- Who knows the most about their favorite Buzz members? What were *they* doing in their hotel room last night? Why were you looking in their window?! Whatever happens, you better reply in the form of a question. Who says enthusiasts have all the “answers” now? J

The All-ABuzzican “Drag”ster Queen Pageant- Is there any explanation necessary?

What Happened to CoasterBuzz? Trivia- In the same style of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, your chance to win prizes by being a knowing-it-all of the history of CoasterBuzz from the CPG to CO to M:TR to the moderators that you thought just wanted to press your buttons since they were on some sort of power trip… Pul-leeze!

The “My Home Park is Better than Yours” Scream Fest- You better have your voice and lungs in top form for this one. Whoever can whine the most and screams the loudest gets to declare their home park the best. Too bad nobody else will care and they’ll just leave with a sore throat and strained vocal cords. You win?

Lets hear s’more!

The Hydration Challenge: We all know it's a good idea to keep yourself hydrated in a park, but doing so also means having to "hold it" while standing in a long line. This challenge has participants drinking a bottle of water every 30 minutes and "holding it" for one hour and 45 minutes, and then riding an Arrow or Vekoma coaster.

Kristin and PlusDanny gets the cookie for best thread to date for 2004 :) :)

-How about the classic Mullet count game. Lord Gonchar will explain the details.

-PimPlaya pageant. CBuzz studs will come showing off their ho's in classic pimp attire. (Pinkie rings, silk versace suits, bling bling all over the place)

Very very cute. :)

This is what happens when you're at work and have entirely too much time on your hands.
Thursday, May 6, 2004 3:40 PM
Wait. Games that enthusiasses could play?
Like uh....
Guess the Free Food in my Facial Hair or
Who Just Farted in Line?

Nope, can't think of any.

It sounds to me like you've played those games before... ;)
Thursday, May 6, 2004 3:46 PM
Naaaah. The only one CBaby, Da Midget and I played is Geek Touch. Kinda like the classic grade-school Booger Touch except you get to slap someone at the first sight of a Coaster Dork.

You only wish I was making this up.

Ha! Don't even get me started.

There are at least a dozen things that are (more lame, funnier, less attractive, dumber, uglier, more out of date) that people wear, sport or do at the parks.

Referring back to the original post, fanny packs immediately come to mind. I'd wear 1000 mullets for 1000 lifetimes before I carried a fanny pack... behind my back... in a brown paper bag... for 5 minutes.

You should be very grateful that we won't attempt to sing for you ;)
Thursday, May 6, 2004 3:57 PM
Don't hold back, Gonch...tell us what you really think...

So, I guess I'm worse that the mulleteers because I always have a fanny pack with me - it's the safest place to keep my digital camera (other than in the car, that is)

Yes, I realize there are probably hundreds of people here who utilize the fanny pack. I guess I'll have to live with stepping on some toes.

Two demographics seem to keep the fanny pack industry alive - Coaster Enthusiasts and Pro Wrestlers

For what it's worth, I have a stupid haircut - feel free to mock me.

Thursday, May 6, 2004 4:04 PM
Here's how we'll settle it: each of you post a picture of yourselves. Redman: take a pic with your fanny pack on. Gonchar: make sure you get your "stupid haircut" in the picture. Then we'll all vote on who looks dorkier. That should determine who's right ;)

Members of the general public are brought on stage and proceed to tell outrageous stories about what they heard about a particular coaster (it once flew off the track, that red coaster over there is called Millennium XL-2000, etc.). A coaster enthusiast will then proceed to roll his/her eyes and correct the guest whether he wants to hear it or not.

Points will be given for artistic style, distance on the rolling of the eyes, with bonus points if he/she can wait until after the guest has finished before correcting in frustration.

How about "Underwater Basket Weaving" in any water areas of your home park?
Thursday, May 6, 2004 4:05 PM
Yea, Gonch, I'd say your haircut is the anti-mullet.

How about this...I won't make fun of your haircut if you don't make fun of me and my fanny pack. ;)

How about these:

Coaster Whore Challenge: Who can ride the most kiddie and powered coasters in a 24 hour period?

Six Flags Cheese and Whine: Which enthusiast can complain the most that their Six Flags home park is "getting the shaft" again? Only our judges can decide!

That Sinking Feeling: Enthusiasts mark their initials on a Magnum support column. A year later whoever's initials are at ground level wins!

Maxi-Pad Battle: Enthusiasts compete to see who's Track Record counting method offers the best option to needlessly pad one's count. If you count relocated coasters, dual tracked coasters as more than one, and when trains are turned backwards this game is for you!

Chain Dog Challenge: Enthusiasts must correctly guess the sound of each manufacturer's lift hill.

And of course...

M:TR ERT [sorry ladies...this is for male members only]
