Wow, that's some odd ERT scheduling. I'm happy the event is happening, but...

-No Xcel, Monty or GR in the morning? The rides being offered are good for about one ride each, then what?

-The behind the scenes tours will probably be very interesting, but still no tour of the Log Ride, which is what I would really like to see.

-The evening ERT (for me anyways) is the exact opposite of the morning ERT...too much to choose from instead of too little. The traditional method of everyone ending the night on Ghostrider produced some of the most memorable moments of past Solaces. I predict that's where everyone's going to end up, leaving the other rides empty.

Other than that, the event will of course be a lot of fun and I'm glad it's returning. I didn't see any mentions of guest speakers, but that has always been a high point of prior Solaces and I'm assuming it will happen again this year.

That's a really weird schedule. I wonder how late the night time ERT will last.

Knott's doesn't seem to *get* the value of their log ride Bass....but they sure do think pretty highly of that thar Boomerang coaster, huh...;)

Just teasin' you guys....sorry I won't be making Solace....but I will *take solace*, at SRM...:)

A tour of the log ride would be awesome. A tour of the mine ride would be cool too. I am looking forward to solace none-the-less.

Bass - the guest speaker will be at the Friday night reception, but you have to stay at the Radisson to attend.

chris - ERT usually lasts until Midnight on Saturday.

Wow, an hour and a half split between four rides? I hope it's not too busy during the day.

chris - don't forget we're gonna have ERT Friday night on Ghostrider...with a lot less people, too. IMHO the Friday night ERT was the better of the two sessions last year.

Well, it's an interesting ERT schedule, alright. The behind-the-scenes stuff is cool, though.

I figure I'll probably take an XCelerator blast early during regular hours and then ERT away on Ghostrider anyway.

chris - no, but I'd suspect the reception starts at 7pm because they have to serve dinner, have time for a speaker and raffle and get everyone to the lagoon for the Edison laser show at 9:30 before ERT starts [probably 10-midnight].

LOL Bass...it sure does seem like it, eh? Man that show is outdated and awful.

'Gator, the sponsor is Edison, also as in Edison Field where the Angels play.

I *figured* as much when YOU called it the Edison laser show....but now I see you are still picking up sponsorship agreements. Spencer's now, huh?

bill, taking bets on the next business to step up and sponsor everybody's favorite non-coaster ride...I've got MY guess picked out!
