When: October 17th
Where: Hersheypark, Hershey, PA
Start time: don't have an official time yet, we'll have something at a later date
We are proud to announce our first group meet-up for the Keystone Thrills site! It will take place at Hersheypark, during their "Hersheypark in the Dark" event, on Sunday, October 17th. If it rains that day, we would push back our meet-up to the following Sunday, October 24th. I'm hoping that we could aim for at least three or four people total and be able to catch up with some of the workers who are also members at the site/forum and say hello to them.
If you are new to the site, this would be an excellent opportunity to come on out and meet some of us, make new friends and ride some of the rides. We would also be checking out the "Attraction 2012" markings (only the markings that are visible from the public areas) as a group and discuss our opinions and thoughts together about what's currently going on in that area. We would also maybe have a group meal together at one of the restaurants together as a group.
Any ideas an/or suggestions to help make this gathering a success would be greatly appreciated.
PLEASE NOTE -- Please remember that this event will not be "official" as it is basically just a group of us getting together (being fans of the park as well as coaster/park enthusiasts) on our own time to enjoy the park together as a group. If you do plan to meet up with us, you will be responsible for your own admission ticket and money for food. General admission for Hersheypark in the Dark is $26.95 per person ($38.95 two-day and $48.95 three-day). Giant food stores will be selling discounted tickets during the event - you can find a list of participating stores on the Halloween in Hershey homepage. If you are younger than 18 years of age and are bringing a parent, grandparent, or guardian, we ask that they remain with you during the duration of the meet-up.
We will probably meet up at the Milton S. Hershey statue in front of the carousel at a designated time which will be posted at a later date.
Hope to see you there!
