I don't really care for the whole reserve your spot for the ride night thing.  After you go online and do that you have to go to the welcome center and pick up a wrist band.  I have been wait in line 20 minutes already and still have at least another 20 minutes to wait.  Why can't they just take the confirmation at the event?

Oh wow they only have 3 windows open no wonder the line is moving so slow.

I think my favorite part of this is the Thirsty Thursdays. Free Icees in August, yes please! That's a simple way to keep me happy, and make me more likely to buy some snacks while I'm getting my free refills, so they still get some of my money.

The RSVP thing about this party was really stupid. It was a last minute trip, so when I tried to just pick up a wristband at the welcome center. They told me to get a confirmation code online, but the pass member login was not working at all on mobile (two different browsers). I had to talk to a supervisor when I was able to get higher ups say it was okay to give wristbands out without reservation codes, as long as the pass was valid. That seemed like a much easier process than trying to deal with this other crap. Otherwise, the ride night was nice and they gave out free shirts, raffles and were interviewing people for what seemed will become some sort of appreciation video. Probably the busiest ride night I have been to, actually.

Ride night was super fun today! We didn't rsvp online so I was afraid we wouldn't get to stay, but there was a line where we could just show them out passes and get the wristband. The band that was playing was pretty good, and I loved the free t-shirts, that was a pleasant surprise!

Don't think you really needed one to tell you the truth. The amount of people I saw walking around without one and going on the rides. No one ever questioned anything. Had ours but even on Verbolten no one said a thing to people in line without them and this was well after 11.

Only thing I don't think you would have gotten was the t-shirt or the raffle tickets for the drawings.

I don't know which sounds more unbelievable; the rumors that I am hearing right now in general, or the idea that there probably won't be a pass member preview day at all this fall. I have heard this from some pretty high places.

Come on BGW, what are you hiding?

The park has two preview days one at the beginning of the year and one in September prior to Howl O Scream

Actually, Preview Day is only in the Spring. The Fall event has historically been part of Pass Member Appriciation Weekend or Month.

The reason that I didn't call it Pass Member Appreciation is because all of August was Appreciation month. They still haven't announced any announcement so far, and I am hearing that they aren't going to.

What would they have to announce? HoS doesn't seem to be getting any major updates (aside from the new house, but they've already announced that). They've already announced InvadR and unless they have something earth-shattering for CT, there's really not much else to announce short of some minor changes in 2017.

I think it an opportunity to do something bigger than just a ride night for pass members. There is more to the appreciation event than just making a big announcement. They have been doing things for a month, but I don't think dispersed, small benefits are the same as a large event.
