Last Seats of the Season Contest

Hi Everyone,

Long-time reader, first-time poster. Here's my topic:

On closing day, Sunday, Oct. 28, we're going to do something a little special. We'll post this information on our blog, but I thought I'd share it here first.

We're all bummed that the season is coming to a close. However, we're gonna have one last bit of fun before we have to start our winter overhaul.

We're looking for 10 lucky riders to be the "official" last riders on Maverick for its inaugural season. Hence the name, "Last Seats of the Season." The 10 riders will ride with me and Tyler on the last train of the night on Sunday, Oct. 28.

So how does this work? I'm glad you asked.

On Sunday, Oct. 28, to celebrate our 10 years of Golden Tickets, you'll be looking for 10 staff members with a Golden Ticket around their neck. If you spot one, go up to that staff member and repeat this EXACT phrase:

"The Old West Was Never This Wild - May I please have the last ride on Maverick?"

If you don't say this phrase exactly as stated, you will not get the Golden Ticket. The Golden Ticket is your ticket to ride on the last train of Maverick for the 2007 season.

So what do you win? I'm glad you asked this also.

You and a friend (that's ONE friend) will be invited back to the ride at 8 p.m. to get your last ride on Maverick. You will ride in the very last train while your friend will ride in the train ahead of it. We'll also give you a certificate that states you were the last riders on Maverick during its inaugural season. AND...we'll throw in free on-ride photos of your experience (one for you, one for your ONE guest).

So that's it. A little something to end the season in a fun way.

I should also mention that your seats will be assigned, so you don't have to worry about getting there at 7 p.m. to get the "best seat."

Look for the 10 Golden Tickets on Sunday, Oct. 28. And don't forget to mention the phrase. If you don't, you won't be handed the coveted Golden Ticket (which you get to keep also).

Any questions you have should be directed to the blog. We'll answer them there.

Good luck!

Wow that sounds great!

Now, how about the REAL Blue Streak!?

That would be the best!

Hiss all you want, I'm still sore...

Oh so you have to buy a ticket to get into the park in order to do this... purchase necessary. :( I won't be able to afford it but good luck to others who have found better luck with jobs then I!

Sounds fun and all, and while I really do think this is kind've a cool thing to put out there, why split up friends? Isn't riding with your friends part of the fun? Maybe it's just me..

One way or another, I'm sure the lucky 20 will have a great time.

Good idea. Perhaps this will limit some of the last ride shenanigans that seem to go on at CP.

^^Because *the* last train will only be the actual Golden Ticket winners...CP needs PR too. ;)

FUN idea! :)

No, there will be people trying to get the last "public" train or at least argue it's the last public train since you need a special ticket after that. ;)

Why not auction off the last rides of the season and donate the money to charity?

A day at the park is what you make it!

Wait, how many guests are we allowed?

I still haven't figured out why people care about stuff like this...

Hobbes: "What's the point of attaching a number to everything you do?"
Calvin: "If your numbers go up, it means you're having more fun."

I still haven't figured out why people complain about little details when park PR decides to do something cool like this for its guests that they really don't have to do.

Why not auction off every seat all the time and donate the money?

Welcome back, red train, how was your ride?!
