With what Zach said I am curious if the TPR ban of photos videos is still in place? I would imagine so.

If someone told me it sold it in under 5 minutes that wouldn't surprise me one bit. The Mean Streak RMC conversion has been anticipated since Texas Giant, of course this event will sell out in a record pace. If I were trying to go I'd have as many devices and tabs up as possible ala Lollapalooza ticket release day haha

What really does it for me will be the 50 posts afterwards of people losing their minds about the park's policy violation and respect for the park's privacy, despite the hypocrisy of everyone watching the video.

I'm not encouraging it and it's wrong to the park... That said, I can still enjoy the entertainment that follows, leading up to the inevitable ban. Life is bliss.


:lol: :lmao: :lol: :lmao: So true!

I was able to purchase my First Public Train ticket before it all went to crap, but couldn't add my kids' $75 ones immediately after they went on sale. I called, and they said it is a website malfunction, and to keep watching, because they'll go back on sale. In the meantime, everybody needs to KEEP CALM, AND GET EXCITED ABOUT SPENDING EXORBITANTLY FOR A GOOD CAUSE! ;)

I got absolutely SCREWED by their stupid computer glitch! :devil: I had purchased my ticket for the first train as soon as they went on sale, and before the site went down. Then I get a call from CP a couple of hours later, saying they had been oversold, and I was bumped to the second train! :cry: :cry: :cry: They gave me the option to get a refund, and I took it, because I'm not paying $250 to be the first loser (2nd place)! :lol: However, she guaranteed me 4 tickets to the event, 1 for me, and 3 for my kids, so I'll still be able to go, and I saved some money! lol

It was a crushing blow to think I had a spot on the first train for two hours, only to find out I lost out on this once in a lifetime opportunity, but Christy from CP Customer Service was great, and I understand that this was out of their control, and they did the best they could, considering the circumstances. It's still going to be a great event, and getting to ride SV multiple times, the first night it's open, will still be an amazing experience to share with my kiddos! So thanks, CP, for everything, and I'm looking forward to April 27! =)

Good news is you'll still be able to ride it. It's not like they are going to engrave the names of the "first riders" in the seats of the train :lol:

That's definitely a bummer, but think of it this way, the track will be more warmed up.
