Recommended Posts

TPR Members! I have some very exciting news! We have been contacted by one of the production companies for the Travel Channel, and they need riders for an upcoming show! Please review the list of dates/parks below, and if you live in the area, and have the time off on that day, please FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS in this post to contact the production company to get on the list.

 

PLEASE NOTE! They will not be able to take everyone, and there are no guarantees you'll get on the list!

 

**You need to be energetic, enthusiastic, willing to take direction, and be very patient.**

After all, during some film shoots, there is a lot of waiting around between shots. This is NOT an "ERT Session", please keep that in mind, however it's always possible you get to ride quite a few times.

 

You will need supply the following information:

 

- Which park/date you are responding for (VERY IMPORTANT!)

- Your full Name

- Your Email address

- Your sex

- Your age

- Your mobile phone number

- If you have done any past film shoot/media events before

 

Send the information to: coastercrews@gmail.com

Oh cool! Thanks for the info, Robb! I just emailed them about Busch Gardens Tampa. It's during the week, but if I get picked I can just take a vacation day for half or the whole day if needed. I want to do this!

For anyone even considering I totally recommend this! I did the Knott's shoot on Accelerator yesterday and I think everyone (with the exception of my friend who had never been on before) rode the coaster about 7 to 10 times. An exception to the rule, however, if if you never have been on before. My friend had not been to Knott's for 11 years so they attached a microphone to her, interviewed her, but that took most of the shoot time so she only got a ride or two. Everyone else just rode a ton of times all morning! It really was an awesome day and a group of us continued to hang out at the park for a few hours after the shoot! Awesome times!

How long did the shoot last? I wanted to do Wednesday at Busch Gardens, but I have class at 1. I just didn't know if it was feasible. I would really like to do this.

 

Wondering the same thing, I just have class at 4:30.

 

Anyone got an email back? I followed all of the directions of course but have yet to receive anything.

I would like to second this...the shoot at Knott's was a great time. If the shooting at the other parks is similar, I'd recommend going if you can. Unfortunately I wasn't able to stay after the shoot.

 

To answer the question above, we were all at the shoot from about 7:30 til 10:00, so allowing 3 hours would probably be best.

About the same for the Sea World shoot but we could only get 4 rides in, they took a while for the interview at the top of the lift. So we had an hour to get as many rides in as we could, but we had to follow the rule too of 2 rides then a break.

Looks like the Dollywood shoot will be Tuesday and Wednesday next week. No word yet on possible coasters (I assume Wild Eagle will be one of them) that the filming will be done on. Sounds like there are still spots available so any one near the area should jump on this opportunity!

Sent an email for the CP shoot. Sounds like fun. Any idea on my chances of getting selected? How many people do they choose? I assume enough to fill a few trains on each coaster.. I think MF and TTD are the ones that will be filmed.

From Screamscape:

(4/24/12) The Travel Channel will be showing off a couple of new shows this summer of interest to theme park fans. One is called Xtreme Waterparks and it will premier Sunday, July 8th at 8pm (EST/PST) as they seek out the world’s most over the top water slides.

 

The other is called Insane Coaster Wars, which will also premier on Sunday, July 8th at 9pm (EST/PST), in a series that not only seeks out the best coasters, but invites thrill seekers to vote in an interactive online poll to vote for their favorite coasters in each episode. The finale episode of the season will count down the Top 10 coasters from the season with the most votes.

 

It just says when the series starts. I can't wait to see when they did Manta (since I was there...lol).
