It's a club for roller coaster enthusiasts everywhere. Its mission is to bring together enthusiasts with the community functions of the CoasterBuzz Web site and in real-life events at various amusement parks.
The annual cost is $25. You can pay by credit card or check.
Your annual membership fee will get you these perks:
Cards are typically mailed out once a week during the busy spring and summer event seasons, and every two to three weeks during the off season. You can view your account history and print dates in the "account" area.
NOTE: The 2024 season is the last for paper membership cards. Virtual cards are available online, viewable on your phone, and verifiable by anyone who can scan the single-use code. View your digital membership card at coasterbuzz.com/clubcard.
Yes, but you must join by mail. Download the form from the join page. Up to three additional members may join for $5 each and must be a member of the same household. The fourth additional member must pay the full $25 membership. Important: Each member must have an account set up here on CoasterBuzz before mailing in the form, since this is an Internet-based club. To create accounts, logout, then click the "register" link at the top of the page.
No. After looking carefully at that option, we decided that print magazines and newsletters create the majority of overhead in running a club. To keep the annual membership fee reasonable, we will not likely produce any print publications. Generally speaking, the information that appears on CoasterBuzz is more immediate and current, and not limited to what the staff can produce.
CoasterBuzz Club has been having events around the country since 2002. A current list of events can be found on this page. Many events are created by the parks themselves, and are club agnostic.
These will vary by park. We hope to foster a club culture that isn't one of expectations (I'm in the club and deserve...), but one that graciously accepts the offerings from the parks and people that fuel our obsession. The club was originally created to help keep CoasterBuzz.com in the black, so that it could foster community for years to come.
CoasterBuzz reserves the right to add or remove site features at any time.
CoasterBuzz Club has a strict code of conduct for its members and attendees of its events. If a park takes any action against you for any kind of safety issue, you will be removed from the club without refund and banned from all future CoasterBuzz Club events. This is a zero-tolerance policy and there are no second chances. Club members must adhere to all of the same rules as anyone else, including all written (signage or ticket notices), verbal or implied regulations and policies. In general, the club does not permit any form of racism, misogyny, homophobia, religious persecution or other things that constitute being a despicable human being. A sense of entitlement is also discouraged.
Most goes to support the CoasterBuzz site. As advertising for a mid-sized site like this one fluctuates greatly, this offers members an opportunity to help out. It's almost an "honor system" of helping defray the cost of the site. The rest goes to getting your membership card printed, mailing it and dealing with the administrative costs of setting up events.
The club is operated by POP World Media, LLC, the company that produces CoasterBuzz.
The club does not have elected officials, but we will accept help in various regions. If you have a good relationship with a particular park, we appreciate your volunteer work in organizing an event for the club.
Cost seems to be one of the biggest barriers in getting people to join a club. We don't want that! You can renew any time to have another year added to your membership and a new membership card issued. They're the same as those for first-time members.
