I wanted to give everyone a heads-up that Beech Bend Park announced during NoCoaster Con that they will host the First-Ever RUMBLEFEST on Sunday, May 28th.
Beech Bend will post the official information and a registration form on their website sometime this week.
Although this info is subject to change pending the official website update, here is the basic plan:
Date: May 28th Registration Fee: Around $24.00, subject to change when the official flyer is posted. Includes: * All-day ride wristband for Sunday * Dinner at 7:00PM for all attendees * ERT on Three coasters (Wild Mouse, Brief Encounter and the KENTUCKY RUMBLER)
This is a good deal, since the basic all-day wristband by itself is $24.00. You'll be getting dinner and ??? hours of ERT for FREE, essentially.
ERT Times: Subject to change for the two steel coasters, but the RUMBLING begins at 8:00PM.
The RUMBLING will last until at least Midnight, but could go later depending on how many people wat to stick around.
Also, Chris Gray and Yours Truly from GCII will be operating the coaster during the RUMBLING, and we promise to make it a memorable evening.
I hope everyone has a chance to update their plans for that weekend. I understand there is some other kind of event the day before at some park nearby...
See everyone at RUMBLEFEST '06!

This will be about our ONLY chance for night rides on the Rumbler this year, and from what was said at No Coaster, I'd guess we'll be rumblin' well past midnight. :) *** Edited 1/17/2006 5:13:16 PM UTC by Acoustic Viscosity***
Yeah, I know there is no way that is ever going to happen as the wedding is in Columbia and Bowling Green is a pretty good drive away. It's almost 5 hours to Santa Claus anyway. :( Thank God we are headed to Vegas on the Monday.
Do it Swoosh.....do it! Your future wife won't mind right?
I am actually lucking out. One of my best friends is getting married the weekend before Memorial Day weekend. My brother is getting married the weekend after. No Rip Roarin Rampage for me.....again. :-/
I would of had to KILL one or both of them if they scheduled their weddings DURING Holiwood Nights/Rumblefest.
