Let me start by saying I am really saddened by the accident and all my sympathies lie with the families of those involved and the Koch family and park employees. What more can I say...there are no words.
This was my first trip to HW and hence, first SRM. I had a great time at the Friday night ERT and Saturday park events. I met alot of enthusiasts and really enjoyed talking to you all. I got to put some names with faces and met lots of new faces too!
Some thoughts from the event:
I came down hard on those from Indiana and Ohio who are SOOOO lucky to have such a wonderful park and such great coasters so close to them. Holiday World is a perfect themepark filled with beautiful people who care about their guests.
I received some top notch tips for the flyers that paid off handsomely as I soon had my bird leaping for the sky!
I met a Cedar Park employee who was friendly and was very forthright with an assessment of his own park. His assessment was fair and unbiased which I truly appreciated.
I spent many happy minutes waiting in the coaster lines chatting with fellow enthusiasts. The time flew and soon we were at the gates waiting to board.
I proudly displayed the "wounds" I recieved on Friday morning courtesy of T2 at SFKK to anyone willing to pay attention to my silly ply for attention. PS - I like T2 anyway.
I think Zinga is the most bizzare thing I've ever seen.
I enjoyed meeting Holidog and Safari Sam...They rock!
I think I convinced at least 3 non-event persons to sign up with a coaster club. "ANY CLUB!", I shouted.
I think "Legend" is the best roller coaster on the planet...period. (spraying myself down with flame retardant foam).
I think that with a couple more trips to HW, I should have enough Ski-Ball tickets to trade in for "The Raven".
I feel the food, souvineers and games are the most resonably priced and high quality as I have experienced just about anywhere.
I think that Six Flags could learn TONS from the Kochs and their employees.
I think "Coasterbuzzers" are pretty cool bunch.
I think I can talk my wife into moving to southern Indiana.
I think...no, I know I made some new friends this weekend. Thanks to everyone! On we go with CoasterMania!
