It is supposed to be announced Patriot Day Weekend (Sept 10-11).

Actually, I would be interested in going to the announcement, however, is there any possibility that Patriot's Day would be viewed as a bad day?

My thoughts are that some people still think of Patriot's Day as a day to remember the fallen of 9/11....not a day to announce a new coaster.

Personally, I don't think it's a bad day, but, I am wondering if WOF has considered that viewpoint.

That is a good point SVLFever. I think they will probably announce it September 10 for that reason.

I'm going to try to be there Saturday and if they do not announce it that day...I'll probably end up there Sunday too. I hope the weathers nice!

Maybe I'll go, all the construction in KC brings the drive up to an hour though.

If it's true, I think that it's in very poor taste.

I think it is a great idea. Not the whole celebration of a patriotic holiday or anything, but it is like they're making it easier for people to go and do something happy on a very sad day. How people think that you have to be sad and everyone else does on a day that causes memories of something I'd rather not think of is beyond me, it seems selfish.

I say go, have fun, you aren't going to be disrespectful to those who lost their life. I'd rather ride a coaster and eat fun food on a day that could potentially be upsetting if I just sit at home and watch the news all day.

Chris - after reading your signature I can't help but ask this... did you know the eagle's name is BOB?

Cal - I don't want the ACErs there. Trust me, you don't either.

In honor of all who were lost, went to war, are still there...here. Have a rolly coaster.

It seems to put a price tag on inestimable sacrifices. That's what's wrong with it.
