Is this a park sponsored event or is it KDFans holding a special thing?

I'm curious as well. I've heard a couple snippets from different fan sites alluding to an event happening. So far, I have not seen anything "official" from the park concerning a 40th anniversary event.

It's an official park event from what I understand. I believe Evan and Gene spoke about it.

Yup it is park sponsored. They are actually not letting coaster events at the park it seems since they are hosting their own. When I talked with Gene, not much was set in stone at the time but everything above is from one of the latest emails that I received.

Gene also just announced it at a coaster con event last night which is really why I posted it finally.

EDIT: Looked more into it and others (Ace, TPR, ect.) can have an event, but they are not allowed to have any ERT in their event.

Funny how KD just seems to be winning lately... I've always known they had it in them.

"Too scary for your family?
Visit us during the day to experience family-friendly rides, Sesame Street Forest of Fun and Land of the Dragons children’s areas, and up-close animal encounters perfect for fall fun. Once the clock strikes 6 p.m., the Howl-O-Scream scares begin which may not be suitable for young children."

The price is actually reasonable considering you are getting 2 free cocktails drinks (if you're over 21), dinner, get to go to some sort of dance, ERT, and end of line passes for a few rides.
