Hey everyone, I went to this last year but then I wasn't in Coasterbuzz. This event is held one day before the park opens (well that was the deal last year) and I was wondering if any of you are invited. I think you have to know someone who works there or something and they invite you, or something like that.
Good Times!! Good Times!!

are you sure this isn't a cedar point website ?

It's not on Cedar Point's website, because it is a special event put on by the Longeberger(sp?) company. Mostly only familys of the longeberger employees are able to go, unless you know someone.... It has nothing to do with roller coaster clubs or anything, Longeberger actually buys the park out for that day.
And yes, usually it is the day before the park opens, unless another company plans on buying out the park, like AAA did in 2000.

My aunt used to sell their baskets. Do they only let people in who actually work in the offices and factory in, or everyone? I'll have to find out if my aunt still sells then, I want to go! I can understand how they can afford to buy it out, those baskets are horridly overpriced.

I believe in 2000, Longaberger Day was 2 days before the park opened, and AAA Day was 1 day before it opened. I remember talking to some guys in line for Disaster Transport who said they were just at the park the day before for Longaberger Day.
btw, AAA Day was pretty packed. 2.5 hours for MF, 30 minutes for Disaster Transport, 1 hour+ for Raptor.
You can't spell "dishonorable" without "honorable."

2.5 hours for MF would have been nice! I think we ended up waiting close to 4.5 hours on AAA to ride it. Was it worth it in then end? Heck yeah!

In 2000 Longaberger and AAA days were a full week prior to the normal public opening, which was weird because media day for Millennium Force was in the middle. The AAA thing came about because apparently whatever buyout they had planned for was cancelled.
Given Longaberger's health this year, I wouldn't be quick to assume they'll do it again this year.

They are doing it again, trust me. I have a friend next door that works there and I talk to him all the time.
Good Times!! Good Times!!
