Best $25 I ever spent.

Crowded, during the day yes, but I did things I probably wouldn't have because of it. Good Magic show and I'm surprised there weren't more Coaster Geeks at the Ice Show, almost a strip-club without nudity. ;) Not a thunder-thigh in the cast. :)

Kevin, thanks for the ride and company at the BK for dinner.

As for the ERT, too much was perfect for me. This event pushed the bar way up when it comes to power-riding ERT!!

Let's hear it for Kevin Cooley and Silverwood!!!

Although I didn't attend, I am happy to hear so many are just pleased as punch to have gone. For that kind of money, power riding is an understatement. How come you didn't hit PNE, though? I was there, at least. ;)

Amen, Mike! Kevin did an amazing job of organizing the event. It is indeed a power rider's dream! Glad we finally got to meet and ride together ;)

We hit PNE on Sunday, the change of plans was some 'buzzers idea. Do you remeber whose idea it was Moosh?

I think it was that jerk Moosh! ;) Still, the rest of us had a fine time on Monday, where we rode all the rides, and then some with very limited waiting and 2 trains all day on Coaster. Even the horrible capacity mouse was only a 15 minute wait.

I wish we could have all hung out, though. I was so looking forward to seeing many of you again, and Moosh....even Greg asked about you.:)

Why? Oh why? Augh.....

Absolutely AMAZING...

We only saw parts of the magic show, twice, and will make CERTAIN to see all of it next year.

The Ice Show, was FANTASTIC. In my opinion, this is the 2nd year that it is a "MUST SEE". Silverwood has had incredible list of talented performers on their makeshift ice rink the last two years. I hope they keep up the show, and manage to find a way to improve the rink.

My kids loved it, and only the 12 year old quit early.

The ERT allowed us as a family to do everything else in the park that we wanted; and that even takes into account that we arrived at the park in the afternoon.

If I hear about CAC04, my payment will be the first in the mail next year.

After our rental car getting broken into by the Space Needle and major line jumping problems at Enchanted Village, Silverwood was a welcome change. It was an amazing ending to a so-so week in the Pacific Northwest. Up until Silverwood, we were actually saying the non-coaster sightseeing was the best part of the trip. :) The night ERT was the best ERT I've ever had. Tremors and Timber Terror are both easily in my Top 10.

Kevin, thanks for organizing such an awesome event!

CAC was overrated.....;)

Just kidding, those who know me (and love me anyway) know that I couldn't resist saying something so completely ridiculous. If you're considering making the pilgrimage to Idaho, DO IT....you will *not* regret it, I promise...

Kevin, awesome event, thanks for all the time and effort on your part, (and that of the Silverwood staff).

bill, still feeling like we ripped off the park...definitely two of the finest wooden coasters out there...:)

I didn't force anyone to join Dave, Jim, and I to Vancouver on Sunday. Gator and Jill could have stayed with their original plans and went with Nasai, Peabody, and Robocoaster on Monday.

I'm FINALLY home. What a weekend. Silverwood just blew me away.

Seattle was gorgeous, as usual -- every time I visit, I find myself thinking about moving back up that way. This trip was no exception.

The Fair at Playland was lots of fun. I was able to fulfill the plan and make Coaster #250. That ride is truly one of the greats.

I'm pretty rushed for time right now (lots of things to do before I leave tomorrow for Vegas), but I just wanted to state how much fun this weekend was. It was great to see everyone, and those coasters...wow.

...but Matthew.... you are so much sexier than I. For Bill it wasn't even a question! ;)

Still, it sucked to not see you all. I wish we had more time, but sadly, those of us stuck up here in the barren wasteland of the Northwest are forced to bide our time, and stick out the winters for a possible shot at Solace. Oh, to dream!

Sad that you didn't also get a chance to power ride Coaster at PNE, although I can't myself. It's just too much nasty, especially in the back seat. The video Corey shot of Jeff and I is unbelievably sick. I was thinking of Tamar Fellner the entire ride. No joke. Scary.

Greg, glad to see you smiling your way through the intensity of the backseat ride on Coaster as well. :)

I couldn't have had a better time! I felt like we should have tipped the ride ops. :)

Solace 2004, an easy trip for me.

CAC 2004, a little more work but maybe some of the more 'local' types can make it next year.

I tried to, Parker, but that guy was like a Weeble or something....every time I tried to *tip* him, he just reocked to one side and then stood up again....;)
