No Coasterbuzz Club for Coastermania?

Sunday, February 21, 2021 11:30 AM

Just looked at the Cedar Point website's Coastermania page and Coasterbuzz is not listed as an included club. I don't really want to join ACE.

Just a mistake, right?

That page lists a club that hasn't existed for some time. I'm guessing it to be boilerplate.


I develop Retro Games for macOS, iPhone, and iPad when not riding coasters.

It is the same list as early last year. Coasterbuzz was added later.

I'll ask, but yeah, it was omitted by mistake last year as well.

Pretty sure the list was peer reviewed before it was published. Sorry Jeff :(

They fixed the list, FYI.

I only went once but they didn't confirm a club membership at any point.

^ How long ago since you attended? We have gone every year that it has been a ticketed event (I think it is 5 years), and someone always checks our club membership card before entry.

Let me make the usual statement that waiting until the last minute to join is a bad idea because your cards do have to be delivered via US Mail.

May have to offer 2 year memberships just so people can get membership cards in time for Coastermania 2022. Amazing how slow the Post Office still is at this point.

I would like to do electronic membership, if I can get the parks to buy-in (I don't imagine it's not easy to forge a card with a laser printer), and make them scan verifiable. I want to see the membership rebound though before investing that time, since it took a huge dump last year with Covid.

As much as I fully subscribe to the "amusement parks are safer than the grocery store" theory and have spent plenty of time in parks in a COVID-19 world, I can't see myself returning to an event like Coastermania (or in my case, Coasterstock at Kings Island, which was my go-to event in 2018 and 2019 as a weekend getaway out of Orlando) until things like full coaster trains and sitting in pavilions or amphitheaters in a group can be a thing again. I'll go to parks and ride rides, but the value of an event that includes ride time, nerd Q&A, and a gravy buffet is dependent on crowds being able to be a thing.

Herd immunity in Ohio may be as high as 41% of the State population. Odds of encountering a contagious person at about 1:242, about the same as October 12. While the new cases reported today were above the 21-day average, those were apparently mostly older cases, as the onset-corrected data is still showing a near linear decline over the last 35 days. If the current pattern (since about January 4) holds...and with the caveat that there’s no reason to believe it necessarily will...the coronavirus public health emergency will burn itself out by Spring.
You know how this goes: hope for the best, prepare for the worst. Although no matter what happens I don’t expect it to be nearly as bad as 2020.

But hope isn't a strategy...

Anyone have a BINGO yet?

Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies.

Apple Wallet and whatever the Android equivalent is?

No... I wouldn't tie into those proprietary things that change. I'd probably just surface a QR code in a web page that someone else can use to verify it's real.
