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.

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.

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.

As far as I'm concerned, if you can buy your ticket, then you can go. Just like a regular visit (though, those under a certain age (12?) should be supervised). Being under 21, you will not be allowed to be served alcoholic beverages of course.

The new PR manager, Katelyn Sherwood, emailed everyone who has purchased a ticket for the b-day bash notifying them that they can receive discounted fast lane or fast lane plus passes for May 10th only. You must email her back to get these tickets. There is more information in the email that you received.

I wish I would have known there was a cut off date! Went to buy my friend's ticket today :( She wasn't sure she was going to be able to attend until last night. I called KD this morning to ask if there was anyway to buy another ticket and was told no (N)
