The only thing better than a naked woman is a naked donkey!

I didn't get to make it to the event, but my girlfriend is a lead at Vortex and said you guys made her night with all your crazy awesome antics.

Just wondering though, what were some of the questions asked, and what were the answers? Also, if you remember, what managers did the answering?

I had asked what ride or attraction they were most happy to see go and most happy to see arrive...

They both agreed that Behemoth is their best to arrive and Boom Boats are the best to have been taken out.

I will have to post pics tomorrow, just having some PC problems...but they will be up tomorrow night...

Sorry, I can't remember names. But one was an operations manager, and the other was a maintenance manager.

The coke/pepsi question was raised by Elissa and it was mentioned that they have a contract with Coke through 2012. ;)

A lot of the questions were the type that they could only say "we've looked into that, but nothing immediate is planned"

^That was hilarious!
The look on his face was priceless.
It was like he didn't care but he was pissed at the same time. :P
And god said, "Let there be, Behemoth!"

I will echo the positive comments left by others, and say that it was a really awesome day. We spent close to 16 hours in the park, and I doubt anyone was bored for a second (just the opposite in fact!).

I was thrilled to get to see many old friends again, and also got to hang out with some terrific new ones. Thanks so much, to all involved!

Cameron.

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

Thanks to Robb and Canada's Wonderland for organizing this event! The dual ERTs on Behemoth were great, as was the walkback (photos to come). Also thanks to David Taylor (taytig) for guiding me around the park.

The lunchtime trivia contest was especially fun, even though I probably scored the lowest of anyone there -- I think I had 5 points. After that, I resolved to be more active on TPR. ::)
