YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!! I was really hoping this would pull through ever since we started speculating the Midwest Bash. I'm definately coming, but the one question is this: For someone who hasnt bought a TPR card or a SF pass yet (though constantly debating on which), what would be the best option price-wise?

Just pay for the non-season pass holder price. Not sure if you noticed but this is NOT a "Club TPR Only" Event - It's open to TPR Forum members as well. So just get their tickets as a guest, or have them register for the forum!

I guess that works too. I was just thinking in the long run...Initially I was planning on hitting SFA, SFOG, SFGAm, SFFT, and SFOT this year. The SFA/SFOG trip might not go through and thats where I could have got the cheap passes. On the other hand, the awesomeness of the Club TPR card gives a pretty good discount on admission, and I really want to hit some more events this year like PPP and Ride Warriors at my homepark of Kings Island.....

The only thing I got to worry about is getting my Season Pass (Yeah it is from Kentucky Kingdom, Go Figure) process as soon the office open. But other than that, I'm good to go!

I would actually call them to find out what time the office will open that morning. In the event that we do end up doing something in the morning, if you don't have a processed pass, they won't let you in until you get your pass processed.

I want to clear up a bit of confusion that our event announcement today may

have created.

 

The TPR Member Day at Six Flags Great America on Friday August 13th is open

to *ALL* TPR Members, not just Club TPR members!

 

If you are a member of the TPR forum (meaning if you are receiving this

email) then you are invited to the Great America day and all you need to do

to register for the event is buy tickets through the TPR Store.

 

You *DO NOT* need to be a member of Club TPR to attend the Great America

TPR Day or East Coast Bash at Kings Dominion.

 

To register for the Great America event, click here:

To register for East Coast Bash, click here:

See you at Six Flags Great America or Kings Dominion and sorry for the

confusion - we thought we made it clear (really! We did!)

Do you have an approximate time of when this would be starting and ending?

It might help if you READ the freaking event details.

 

1. You *MUST* meet the group at the Six Flags Great America Entrance Plaza at 9:00am on Friday, August 13th.

 

- 90 Minutes of evening ERT including Little Dipper, Viper, and Raging Bull.

This is probably a stupid question, but will the evening ERT be after close?

Yes. Please keep in mind that we don't have a final schedule yet, and like it says on the event details page:

Final schedule will be emailed to you a few days prior to the event. More fun and surprises may be announced soon!

This is an all-day event. You should assume you'll be at the park from 9am until 10:30pm. If you can't make the all day event I would probably not advise registering. Unless you want to leave before the evening ERT, but I kind of see that as being a major part of the event.

 

We will NOT have a way to get you the event tickets and wristbands AFTER event packet pickup at 9:00am, so if you are late, you basically forfeit going to the event and there are NO REFUNDS. Please keep that in mind.

Looks like I am going to be going. This should be a interesting trip for me as I get to hang out with some other coaster nerds. I was also supposed to be ending my job on the 13th (because I'm going to college) but I can't miss this event! Nice choice of day btw, Friday the 13th

So it turns out this is a little far maybe to go all the way there and back in one day for us. Is there any local TPRer (not more than a half hour or hour from SFGAm) who could host my wife and I as well as Zach (PkiJIZZman) either thursday or friday night. Either one works. That or can anyone recommend a really cheap (but not roach-infested) place to crash either Thursday or Friday night? Thanks! I wouldn't ask except all the TPR members I've met have been the nicest people, so I thought we'd give it a shot!

My friends and I are working on the hotel thing... we are looking for dirt cheap hotel (not roach-infested, of course) to crash on thursday night and after SFGAm, we are heading up to Wisconsin Dells, and coming back to Indiana Saturday night. If we come across with a good deal, we will pass along. We are AAA members so I'm not sure if that will be a factor to you or not. I will keep you posted.
