Sue Barry and Rich Yekel finally took the plunge. After dating for 15 years and riding the Boulder Dash roller coaster at Lake Compounce Family Theme Park more than 1,750 times, they said "I do" Saturday and then took another ride to celebrate.

"You know the caption: "It all goes downhill from there.""
I always thought marriage was a series of hills and valleys with some trim brakes in between... :P

And instead of paying to get on, you pay to get off. Wait a minute...that didn't sound quite right. ;)

I know the couple quite well they are fellow ACE members and visit my homepark often. It was all over the news here in CT and thats alot of free publicity for LC. I always thought they would get married on rolling thunder because they lived in NJ before they moved to Pa. and they used to ride it alot. I was going to attend but something came up on Saturday and I couldn't make it.

^ But then they'd have to use the Six Flags Official Wedding Planner, the wedding party would have to be dressed as Warner Brothers characters, then put in two hours each as bathroom attendants, and instead of wedding cake, they'd have to serve Papa John's pizza (mmm imagine that smushed in the bride's and groom's faces).

I knew they were going out for a while but I didn't know it was 15 years. WOW! :-) I last saw them at Spring Fling and they were talking about the upcoming wedding. I am so happy for them!
All the best of luck Sue and Rich! :-) You guys rock!

Is it me or does Rich look strikingly similar to William H. Macy?

I don't read this site as much as I used to, but I just noticed this now. Even though the weather looked awful in the early morning, it cleared up and the day was perfect
Thanks for the wishes everyone!
