Well, I'm thinking of arranging a little field trip for the memebers here and I need a headcount of those who might be willing to come.
I'm in Ohio, home of Cedar Point - The "Roller Coast." This legendary amusement park has more coasters than anyplace else on earth as well as several world-record breaking rides. The Magnum XL-200 was the first coaster in the world to break the 200 ft. mark. Then the Millennium Force was the first to break the 300 ft. mark. And now, this year, the new Top Thrill Dragster will be the first to break 400 ft, will reach speeds of 120 MPH, and has a drop of - get this - 90 degrees. Straight. Freakin'. Down.
So, I thought sometime in September, it'd be a hoot to have a bunch of us descend on the park for a DP Day Out. There is more than just the thrill rides, of course. Lots to see, do , and play. Oh, and did I mention the Cedar Point Midway Arcade? Home to hundreds of classic video games still in pristine working condition.
So, that's what I'd like to arrange and that's what I'm asking. I want to find out how many folks would be interested in showing up for a day to ride and play. Please do not vote as a "Yes" if realistically you know there's no way you'll be able to make it.
Well, get to voting. I'll announce more concrete details (dates, times, directions, other fun things going on) as the summer progresses.
