Will there be Coaster Celebration 9/15 at SFGAdv ?

Wednesday, September 12, 2001 7:38 AM
Calling the park at the phone number on their web site has no information.  You cannot get a human to talk to. I know the park is closed weekdays now but I thought the office might have someone there and/or a notice on the web site relative to the recent horrors that affected NY and the NJ area.
I know I am not the only one who planned a while back to attend CC this Saturday.  Since I live in MA my plans include driving down on Friday afternoon to a hotel, etc, blah, blah, blah, and I wonder if my trip must be cancelled.

Does anyone know if the event will still go on? 
Does anyone know of a "magic" number to call for latest info?
If CC won't take place, folks like me need to know to cancel hotels, change plans, etc.

This may seem a bit trite considering the atmosphere in the country today, but one way or the other I simply need to know.  If CC will go on as planned, I will attend.  Otherwise, I need to cancel plans, and I assume likewise for other CBers who had planned the trip.

(if there was a post on this already, sorry, search feature broke on me 3 weks ago)

I called SFGAdv and they said that so far they are planning to be open but, she said that the NJ turnpike is currently closed coming from the north. She said to try to call back on Friday. The number I called was (732) 928-1821, when the recording started I just pushed "0" and got the operator. You may want to call the NY and NJ Department of Transportations to check out the conditions of the roads between you and SFGAdv.

The "0" trick will get you a "live human" on most but, not all automated systems.

Yes, CCVI shall go on!  Nothing can stop me from riding Robin Chiller with the lap bars for another couple hundred rides since last weekend!  NOTHING!  LOL.

Yes, and it appears those of us driving southward will not have any issues with highway closures...the exits for eastbound traffic off the NJ turnpike that were closed have been re-opened, according to a few different "traffic conditions" sites I explored (those were the higher numbered exits west of NY).  Travel to SFGAdv should be "normal" for me and others on Friday afternoon/evening.
Life can and will go on and for all of us (I hope) that post here, life could certainly be worse than riding coasters.
I will be looking for other CBers and ACErs at CC6.
I will have my CB shirt on.
