National Roller Coaster Day


Recommended Posts

So apparently Saturday is National Roller Coaster Day. Looks like Six Flags is doing a promo with this in mind, but a google search reveals links to posts about how this has been a thing since the 80's.

 

Does anyone here care about it? Anyone doing anything for it?

 

I've coincidentally scheduled a day at SFGAdv on Friday w/ my sister, who was my original coaster buddy when we were kids. Stoked. And then I happen to be going to see my folks in Wildwood on Saturday, so I'll likely be at Morey's on Saturday at some point. So it looks like I'm making a weekend out of it.

 

Sorry if there is a thread about this already, I searched.

This Saturday is when our annual fair, the PNE, opens.

Unfortunately, that means that the price for ride tickets

and passes goes way up - and I can't even use my regular

season pass for this time. So, no coaster for me.

 

So - I shall be riding a coaster of my own (mind) making.

I was ironically in Orlando from the 14th to the 16th last year, and got to spend the 16th at SeaWorld before catching a flight out that afternoon heading home. Best unplanned solo park trip ever! Might as well continue the tradition.

 

I don't really need an excuse to go to an amusement park, but having an extra reason makes a trip more likely.

I totally second this.

The KY State Fair started, so prices have slightly changed here as well. Normal park day tickets would be $44.95 at gate ($52.95 w/ parking), but it's $19.95 during the fair. Then you include required fair admission, required parking fee, and optional weekend midway unlimited wristband and it ramps up to $62.95 ($53 through Kroger).

 

Unlike yours, my season pass is valid at KK... Your situation seems quite unfair.

Sooo, the weather here was lots of rain today, therefore coaster riding didn't seem to be in the cards. Instead, in honor of National Coaster Day, I had an Insane Coaster Wars marathon going on in the house all day. Seasons 1,2 and 3. Now I'm going absolutely crazy for a coaster fix!

 

Me and you both! I had to work all day.

Spent National Roller Coaster Day at my local park Frontier City....closed out the day by a few night rides on the Wildcat a nice little out and back woody. Nice it is up and down through a dense forest area of the park. Then closed out the day with a final night run on the Silver Bullet a Classic Anton Shwarzkopf Looping Star.

I spent my Nation Roller Coaster day hopping from park to park! Spent my morning at Cedar Point, by noon crowds were very heavy so I said to myself I should go to Waldameer! But wait! I've still never been to Conneaut Lake Park and I'm not sure about the future of that park so let me go grab that Blue Streak credit while I still can! Then over to Waldameer! For only finding out about this holiday on Tuesday I think I did pretty good!

Started my morning with 2 rides on Maverick!

This was a great little ride! It was really cool seeing the hand operated brakes!

Then ending my day with this excellent woodie!
