PKI to auction off first Tomb Raider ride

Posted Tuesday, March 26, 2002 3:34 AM | Contributed by CoasterAaron

Paramount's Kings Island has announced its auction for the first ride on Tomb Raider: The Ride on opening day, April 5, at 9:15 AM. The highest bidders will receive free admission along with the first ride. Winners will be arranged in order of the highest bid, to the lowest bid with the best seat going to the highest bidder. All benefits from the auction will go to the Adventures For Wish Kids fund.

Take me to the bidding!

The post said TR:TR doesn't open till April 5, so the people there on the 3rd or 4th will more than likely not get to ride it. Also, if they did, then the winning bidders would not get the first ride and therefore can probably sue over false advertising.

Cowboy Curtis,

Autcioned rides happen all the time and rarely do they actually offer the true first ride. If you read the release from PKI, it doesn't mention anything about the first true ride, but rather the first ride on April 5th which is true. This is not false advertising. Those riders on the 3rd and 4th won't be the first true riders either.

As far as the first true ride, I am pretty sure that already took place.

Not only that, but it's for charity. Who cares is it's the first or not?
