  1. I've signed up this year as well! Can't wait to see some familiar faces back at Kennywood this weekend!




    Did you join Team TPR? I don't see you listed on our page yet?


    Yes - please let me know. You currently aren't on the Team TPR team but I can move you over and that would increase your team total by $366. Feel free to reply to the email I sent yesterday and it just takes one click.



    I signed up from my phone and I probably messed up but Steven, I just emailed you about getting that taken care of!


    Thank you for letting me know!

  2. Thanks for keeping us in the loop. I wish GKTW all the best in coming up with an alternative to this event. This is one event I looked forward to every year. The fundraising, the riding with friends, to meeting wish families at the park, and hearing their stories. Everything together made this event what it was.


    But I do hope that GKTW gets to work something out. I just feel bad for the fact that the amount of $ that GKTW won't be getting (directly from this type of event). I mean TeamTPR over the years have donated amazing amounts of $ to this cause, and to potentially not have that, makes me a little sad.


    Thank you GKTW for a great event, and I look forward to what you come up with.

  3. Some pics from Cedar Point!


    Looking snazzy.


    Signs outside the rides during the day.


    A little bit of history...


    More ride time!


    We had 2hrs on this wonderful coaster.


    2 fun exciting hours.


    Had to take a pic of Gatekeeper.


    3hrs on Gemini. 99% good, 1% bad when you get a hard brake into the station.


    We had fun racing the non coasting for kids train.


    Team TPR (I know there was one more there but they didn't say hi but was standing near us in the big group picture)

  4. Not to take anything away from the amazing donation tally, but I have a couple of questions for those who have done this before.


    What, if anything, are riders permitted to have with them? Is it SOP like any other coaster ride on any other day, or are the marathoners allowed to bring articles such as water, music players, books, cushioning of some type, etc onto the ride? Any advice for us first timers on actually surviving the day?


    Past few years they had a ride twice get off wait a train or two get back on policy. Haven't seen anything about that this year. But it's generally business as usual on a coaster. Depending on park, you are filling in empty seats on a ride.

  5. I agree with Nick, I had emailed some questions, and never got a response. I guess working at a gym, I feel like you should be responding to questions. I also think another email about the noon deadline for today would have been nice, as I actually forgot about that until I saw that last night.


    But if these are the only minor issues I have, then so be it. Still no matter what it is a fantastic event, and the parks always put on a great event. This is my 4th year coasting, and my 3rd different park. (eventually my goal is to participate at every CF park )


    I always find it amazing that Team TPR goes above and beyond year after year.

  6. Was just at the park yesterday, lines were about an hour for most major coasters. I actually waited longer for a locker at Batman: TDK than the actual ride line.


    Wicked Cyclone is amazing. Got a front row and a back row ride. I enjoyed both, I think I did enjoy back a little more. I thought I saw some other people mention at one point in the back there was a rattle. I did notice it slightly, but it definitely didn't take away from the ride.


    Music at the Park was there yesterday and I expected crowds to be awful, but I was pleasantly surprised.


    I had more issues with a security guard at bag check than anything else all day.

  7. On a personal note, I've had a little surge of donations this week, and now sit a mere $3 from my original goal of $2,000 raised!! I'm very excited, and hope to keep going even further! If anyone would happen to feel generous and want to throw a couple bucks my way to help reach that goal, I would greatly appreciate it! This truly is one of my favorite times of the year......Go Team TPR!! ONE WEEK LEFT!


    Let me know what your next goal is before the deadline. (after the 2k.) I would put you over tonight, but um my credit card thinks it's magically suspicious when I make multiple donations in the same amount to one charity. :/


    So, I still have $ to give for people I have your pages open. I'm just spreading them out over this week, so I don't get any more phone calls from the credit card company.

  8. I do hope you realize that I haven't forgotten about you, dear! Money's a little more sparse this year for donations, between our new darling Morgan, a new hot water tank, and our dog's recent 4-day vet extravaganza (always something, lol!)......but rest assured I will be sending you a donation either this weekend or early next week (after payday). Can't forget about my Coasting for Kids partner!! I'm very much looking forward to our Cedar Point journey for this year's event!


    Nick, I didn't even notice. But I do have an idea of what your vet bill probably was. That completely stinks about the hot water tank too. But I totally can't wait to have an awesome adventure at Cedar Point!
