Well, Coasting for Kids was a pain in the A$$. No, LITERALLY, My A$$ is killing me still. 9hrs on one of the hardest surfaces available on a coaster takes its' toll.
But it was a good experience for a great cause!!!!
All in all, The Bebes managed 131 laps, taking two short bathroom breaks after laps 25 & 50, a mandatory one-hour lunch break (they actually removed us from the ride together and brought us back on together after lunch), and one more potty break after lap 100. There were a few people who managed (i believe) 141 laps and only got off during lunch (congrats to Josh, Bruce, Matthew and Jake)!
Everyone at Knotts was great, and accommodating. Continental breakfast spread was setup on tables near the Jaguar entrance and they left it out for us until just before the park opened to the general public at 10am (about 3hrs). We were able to store all of our personal belongings in the ride op booth. Jennifer brought up bottled waters and left them for us at the station. We were provided a Mrs Knotts Box Lunch (3pc chix, mashed potatoes, corn and biscuit) OR a Veggie Wrap (for the vegetarians) for lunch. We were also provided our choice of Canned Pepsi, bottled Sierra Mist, bottled Diet Pepsi or bottled water to drink during lunch (and take with us). They also had a special spot setup where we could get fresh baked cookies and bottled water from lunch until 5pm whenever we wanted. The ride ops were really great and enthusiastic throughout the day as well. Thanks Knotts!!!!! Job well done!!
NOBODY said "HI to the Bebes" at the event, although Greg & the Condon family said it was "nice to spend some quality time with The Bebes". Thanks Greg!!!! Ditto!
The Bebes will have an official Coasting for Kids day photo trip report up soon! Of course, it's sure to be more funny than informative, so stay tuned!
SOMETIMES Mr. Bebe has to work alone, but he HATES it!!!!
