No BeastBuzz for 2007

Friday, March 9, 2007 11:04 AM
After five straight years, it looks like we'll have to skip BeastBuzz this year. There are a number of scheduling issues. We could still do it, but without the ERT, unfortunately, and most of the people I talked to wouldn't come if that were the case.

We'll hopefully pick it up again next year.

Aww, the 17 hour day at Kings Island has become a yearly favorite. :(

...but I understand.

Bummer, would've been great too this year with my shiny new CF Maxx Passes. Oh well, thanks for trying and we'll still have plenty of great events this year I'm sure. Thanks again and for the info.

I missed last year's event, but the prior year was the single longest continuous day I have ever spent in any park ever.

How about making Gonch spend a week at Conneaut? THAT would be a reality show worth watching.

Conneaut Lake Survivor. Who will last longer? The contestants or the park?

Hey, I like CLP!

I don't know if I'd spend a week there (it's hard enough blowing more than 4 or 5 hours), but geez, cut me some slack. :)

Since when do you like Conneaut? Or are you having rose-tinted visions of that uber-cool eighties c*ck rock concert you saw there years ago? ;)

When have I ever said I hated CLP? Huh? Huh? Huh? (imagine me poking your chest as I say that :) )

We've visited the park 3 of the last 4 seasons, they used my photos on their website for a couple of seasons and I let them have photos for their postcards.

Me & CLP are tight. ;)

Still don't think they have long to live or that they're a viable business anymore, but...

Hey! Why are we discussing this in the BeastBuzz thread!?

We should be mourning the loss of one of the coolest events around.

It's my fault there's no BeastBuzz. I was actually thinking of going this year.

Okay, I stand corrected. No, make that... I stand... WRONG ;)

Back to BeastBuzz... there are PLENTY of other cool events to attend, ya know?

I'm glad this thread went up. I was just thinking about the trip me and three friends are taking this year, and it just so happened that it would be that same week as last year. When I couldn't find anything, I just assumed that it hadn't been posted yet.

KI is the last park on the trip, and Saturday was an option if Friday fell through. In reality though, I don't think I could survive another BeastBuzz!:) In restrospect, it's probably a good thing we didn't have a schedule ahead of time. Getting there before 9 a.m. in the morning for the Beast walkback tour after being up until 2:30-3 a.m. in the morning trying to find a motel/hotel room would not have been fun.

Granted, had I known what I know now--"reasonably-priced" hotel/motel rooms being almost impossible to find the night before, 40,000 people in a park on one day, massive traffic jams just to get into the park from either side of the freeway, leaving even earlier so we wouldn't have missed the registration check-in, it wouldn't have been so stressful.

And anyone even seriously attempting the "quiz" (treasure hunt doesn't sound right) should check their sanity at the door! It should've said "PKI-locals only" at the top of the sheet!:)

I, for one will miss it this year as a trip JR Villain and I were planning was going to land us at KI in time for Beastbuzz. We were just waiting on the date to be scheduled. Oh well better luck for next year as it won't deter me from making the trip this year.

I there anyone who uses these forums on a regular basis that's not familiar with [deep voice] coasterimage.com [/deep voice] though?
