I realize that many people on this group already have plans for the Sunday following the Phun Phest, but I would like to extend an open invitation to visit our design and vehicle assembly building in Sunbury, PA on Sunday at 12:00 noon.
Chris Gray and I will be present to answer general questions about coaster design and construction. We'll have free beverages available for attendees. All attendees will be required to sign a non-disclosure of information agreement (we'll explain that before the tour) and we ask that there be no photography inside the building.
This should be a fun little side trip for anyone who was wondering what to do on Sunday! If you can't make the tour, we'll see you at Knoebels!
Jeff Pike Vice President Great Coasters International, Inc.
Directions to our office from Knoebels Amusement Park:
Take Route 487 from Knoebels toward Shamokin approx 6 miles to Route 61.
Turn Right on Route 61 heading North (West) Toward Sunbury approx 10 miles to Route 890

Our office is on the left hand side of Route 890, just past a large "Dries Orchard" Sign
There is a sign and a flagpole just off the road. Please park in the main lot in front of the building.
Wow! That's pretty cool. I won't be able to make PPP, but I am in the middle of moving and plan on bringing a truckload of stuff from Allentown on Sunday. I might have to pull the big ol' Penske truck up and take advantage of this offer. :)
Do I need to go to PPP to come to this? I live in the area (Mifflinburg) and cannot go to PPP because of a football game. I do, however have Sunday off. Also, is it just one tour or an all afternoon open house-like thing?
This is just TOO cool....thanks to the great "pholks" at GCI for this "phantastic opher"....OK, sorry, getting carried away, LOL. I've been to the Bahamas, not that much different from FL....but a tour of the GCI facilities inaddition to PFN, PPP, *and* Ridefest....so happy-happy I opted for the weekender to PA....:)
Thanks again to Jeff P. and GCI, what a bonus for PPP weekend! ------------------ We're whalers on the moon, we carry a harpoon, but there ain't no whales so we tell tall tales and sing a whaling tune...
