Hey! I just realized something, I know nothing about most people on here! So basically what I am asking is to post some info about yourself like: Job? Age? Family? Hobbies (other than coasters!) and anything else that you just want to share!
I think that this is a great way to get to know all of these people that we talk to day after day! So speak up and tell us about yourself!
Me, My name is Adam and I live in Far Western Kentucky, about 2 hours away from Holiday World, 3 away from SFStL and SFKK and about 5 hours away from PKI. Im ONLY 16 years old and a full time student (3.8 GPA!!! YAY!!!) and sales clerk at our local Movie Hut (a blockbuster wannabe!) In my spare time I love to play golf, football, basketball, and I love to watch Kentucky Wildcat sports!! I am also involoved with many local drama plays and I hope to one day be a lawyer and a politician! Thats about all I think! Now, what about you.......... ------------- IS THERE A BETTER PARK THAN HOLIDAY WORLD??
Well, my name's Eric, I live near Sacramento, CA, and I'm 16 years old. I'm an okay student, (3.2 GPA), and I'm semi-fluent in German. Besides the obvious, my spare time is often filled with reading books (lots and lots of books :)). I've read The Lord of the Rings 5 times in the last year, and it's my favorite book (well, set of books, really). I also enjoy reading Stephen King, Michael Crichton, and authors of the like. I'm a huge Dave Matthews Band fan, and I've seen them three times this year already (Twice in San Francisco and once in Las Vegas). Listening to that music got me into playing the guitar, which I've been playing for almost a year now. I work as an intern at Hewlett-Packard designing web-pages, which is somewhat boring, but hey, how many other 16-yr. olds have cubicles? I also write quite a bit; songs, poetry, stories, and other things, as well. Lastly, I really enjoy taking pictures of roller coasters (Duh.). I'm working on getting a website set up to hold them all.
Geez, when I list it out, my life actually seems busy! I haven't been doing much at work lately (I haven't had much to do for a week now) and that's where I find most of my time to post here on CB. --- Life's too short to mind, Just keep on with the sweet up and down

Hi! I'm Jack Newton and I live in a town near San Francisco. I'm 13 so obviously my job is a student (going into the 8th grade). I maintain a 4.0 GPA (I'm not a nerd :p)! I like rock, punk rock, hip hop, rap. I go to school at a so called "ghetto" school (;)). But I liked to call it underprivileged. Our school mascot is the cougar (Chipman Cougars). I like spending time with my friends (in fact my school is taking a trip to Washington DC/New York/Philadelphia/WILLIAMSBURG. I tried so hard to get my teacher to let us go to BGW but no dice :() I'm really good at math (I'm taking geometry next year in 8th grade) Some of my hobbies are drawing my own roller coasters (:)) Hanging with friends, and doing school work. And my favorite roller coaster is Montu! I hope this helped you to get to know me (although i doubt it did!)! :)

Seriously, my name is Mike. I am 15 years old, and I live just south of Akron in a suburb called Uniontown. Most of my time is spent w/ music. I play piano (10 years), guitar, bass, drums, and harmonica for 1 year. I play in a Christian pop punk band called Christopher Peeper. I play guitar in my worship team at church. I like to go to shows of the Christian and punk scene. My favorite bands are Mxpx and relient K. I also like NSYNC. I learn a lot of NSYNC dances to attract members of the opposite sex. I just recently went to the NSYNC concert and Sound Test Party. We won the ticks at a dance competion at Great Lakes Science Center that was televised on WKYC News. I work as the ice cream man and bottled water man along w/ my best friend Chris the peanut man at Canal Park for the Akron Aeros. It is a great job. If you are ever at the game and you see two blonde haired kids walking up and down the aisles yelling, thats us. I plan to either go into journalism or music production when I am out of HS.
My name is Kevin. I'm 15, and I live in a small town called Downers Grove, about an hour away from SFGAm. I live with my brother and sister, both ACE members. I am, too. I like alternative, rock, rap, some techno. Other than riding coasters, I like to ride my bike, cook, and watch TV. At 15, I'm surrently looking for a Job at Yorktown 18 (General Cinemas), but other than that, I'm just a student. And now you all know a little bit of my twisted life.
Let the bears pay the Bear Tax, I pay the Homer Tax.
I'm David and I'm 13 so I'm a student. I live in Greensboro, NC home of Wet & Wild Emerald Pointe which is scheduled to debut their new water coaster Hydra Fighter II soon after brief delay!! I am going to be a freshman next year, and I'm signed up for a class called Science Visualization in which you use 3d Studio Max to show scientific laws, etc, but I'm just taking it to use 3d studio max and make roller coaster to display the law of gravity and others that i can show by making coasters!! I am a big sports nut!! I like the Red Sox, Spurs, Hornets, Raptors and many others!! The Comets were the name of my sports teams in middle school, I wish our mascot was one of the Comet coasters instead of an asteroid thing. I like surfing the web, hanging out on coaster buzz, sports, friends, and most importantly ROLLER COASTERS!!!!
------------- Steel- 1.Millennium Force Wood- 1.The Beast "Airtime, how sweet it is!"
Besides coasters, I'm obsessed with skiing/snowboarding, music(Rap, R&B, and some alternative. Yeah, DMB is cool too), cars, tropical weather, getting and keeping a tan (Don't ask why), food, t.v.,architecture/engineering, and I play volleyball and whatever else my friends and I feel like playing.
You all are some youngsters let me tell you. I'm Justin Adams, and I live in the San Francisco Bay Area. I'm 26, and I work in sales. I live in between SFMW and PGA, and about an hour and a half from Bonfante and SCBB. I am an ACE member, and was recently married on Medusa at SFMW. I enjoy lots of different things, movies, music, video games, baseball (Go A's!), but my passion is coasters and amusement parks. My favorite steel coaster is V2 at SFMW and my favorite wood is Ghostrider. Of course, that probably change once I finally get out of California and ride some coasters in Florida this September. :)
Hey, I'm Vince and 20 years of age. I live in Branson, Missouri. I work for Silver Dollar City. I'm in candy production: that means I get to dream up flavors and design the look of the candy. I also get to do some other things at the park too. When I'm not at work, I'm thinking of things for my work. I love music, but not country. "Boo on the country stuff!" I am now a big fan of Aerosmith after my girlfriend got me addicted to their music. I love SOCAL and will one day be back, just for the winter! I will soon be a student. Then when I graduate I will take over as CEO of Silver Dollar City Inc. "I Wish!" But, you know it could come true!
My name is Steve and I live in Cleveland Ohio. I live 20mins away from SFWoA, and an hour from CP. I like to Skateboard, swim, go to the ocean, go to parks, and Computer. I listen to Rock like Creed, Lifehouse. But I also listen to Linkin Park. A am 13 so i am a student going into the 8th grade. I want to work at SFWoA when im old enough. And try to get up to manager. And maybe start my own Amusment park chain. My favorite coasters are, Millennium Force, X-Flight, SuperMan Ultimate Escape, Villain, SuperMan: ROS at SFDL, Raptor, and Mantis. I am going to BGW and SFA in augaust, and hope to have a new list. hehe! And my favorite TV show Is SpongeBobSquarePants! Im Ready!
Jess, SHS ALL THE WAY! My name is Chris and I am currently a Sophomore at Sharpsville High School, PA. I'm really not into much other than coasters besides music. I play the french horn and drums. My favorite bands are Aerosmith, NSync, Marilyn Manson (only for the music, the words freak me out), and Britney Spears. When I graduate I plan on attending college to become a mechanical engineer. Hopefully I'll be able to design coasters someday. My favorite hobby is going to Wal Mart at 3AM just to see how long it takes to get kicked out. And that ladies and gents, is pretty much everything about me.

I currently "work" at a resturant called Trattoria Andiamo (feel free to stop by :)), and I roll silverware (I do a LOT more than that, but that's the offical job title I like to use :)). Some of my hobbies include playing hockey, playing guitar, and listening to music. I also enjoy seeing movies, programming computers (I don't really know how to to that all that well ;)), and of course, roller coasters.
I also enjoy a fine wine while sitting in front of a fire, candle lit dinners, and long walks on the beach. ;)

My name is Erik. I'm 18 and live just outside Boston, MA. I just graduated from Boston College High School and will be attending Connecticut College next year. I plan to study economics and go into the amusement industry in some way. I'd like to do marketing since I like writing. For work, I am a launch (ya know, the boat that takes people out to their moored boats) operator in the summer and a PSIA Certified Ski Instructor in the winter. Not bad, eh? I was a member of the State Champion Sailing Team at B.C. High, and the Ski East League Champion Ski Team also at B.C. High. My favorite steel coaster is S:ROS at SFNE and my favorite woodie is Boulder Dash. My favorite park is Cedar Point (no visited in September 1999 before the Force). That's me in a nutshell.
